BEERWAH'S GOT COUNTRY
13TH OF DECEMBER
Kaylens Rain has been described as one of the most exciting new acts in Australian
country music. Nominated for two 2014 Golden Guitar Awards including ‘New Talent of the
Year’ and ‘Best Group or Duo’ siblings Glen & Kaylee Harrison from Sydney bring a fresh
unique sound to the genre.
From busking and talent quests in Tamworth to performing at 'CMC Rocks The Hunter',
'Gympie Muster', ‘Golden Guitar Awards’, ‘Commercial Radio Awards 2013’ and iconic
venues in Nashville the duo are bringing many new fans along for the ride.
Recipients of the 'New Artist to Nashville Scholarship Award' (NA2N), Kaylens Rain will be
representing Australia at the Global Artist Showcase during CMA Fest Nashville 2014.
Collaborating with producer Andrew Cochrane, the pair released their debut single ‘Is That
All There Is’ in 2011, and with the taste of success that followed released their debut album
FOUND in October 2012. Citing influences from Lady Antebellum and Rascal Flats to Keith
Urban and Dire Straits it's not surprising, that combined with a younger take on what
‘country music’ means, Kaylens Rain have produced an exciting country rock sound.
FOUND is an album with broad appeal, not only to country fans but a whole new audience
of music lovers. It will take you on a journey, from driving guitar riffs to beautiful sibling
harmonies, from heartbreaking love songs to inspirational lyrics.
“This album is something we’ve been wanting to do for some time,” says Kaylee. “We wrote
and sourced a few songs and we were talking about whether to make an EP or an album.”
“We got to the point where we finally had enough songs together for an album - and we are
now at that point where we feel like we’ve got the songs, we’ve figured out our sound and
what message we want to portray.”
And that message is primarily about love, accompanied by a wide mix of country rock
tracks that relate to the duo’s personal experiences of growing up, relationships, love and
“There are love songs on there...” says Kaylee. “Usually they come from my experience – I
would write about my break ups and Glen would go along with it. He’s had more positive
experiences (with love)...” But there are also songs that inspire and deal with social issues."
Being a brother and sister duo singing songs of love and heartbreak may seem a tad
awkward, but Glen is quick to clarify. “They’re not duets – I’m not singing to Kaylee,
because that would just be wrong (laughs). They’re just songs, stories about experiences
that anyone could have.”
And that, right there, is the key to the Kaylens Rain sound: accessibility. Being technically
classified as country doesn’t quite fully describe their sound – the scope is much broader
“We love country music – it’s continually evolving. You can’t always classify it,” says
Kaylee. “Country music has always included a collaboration of different genres.”
With their hot new single ‘Outta Here’ receiving great airplay on radio and TV, Kaylens Rain
are sure to set the path towards the success they hope for on their debut album, ‘Found’.
“We’re serious about what we do – and we want to make good music,” says Glen.
With their sights set firmly on the future, Kaylee is keen to see what the coming year holds
for the duo. “Getting this album out is so exciting for us – and we're looking forward to
touring and playing to new fans. There is nothing like the buzz you get when someone
comes up and says we've made their day. It makes it all worthwhile.”
It’s clear that Kaylens Rain aren’t here to dispel any myths about country music, or convince
you that they’re a cross over act. They’re simply making great music that they love and
however you want to define it, they just hope you enjoy it.
