LAURA RAIN AND THE CAESARS hail from Detroit and later this month they release their fourth long player, ‘WALK WITH ME ‘. Stateside, the long player is being hailed by critics as the band’s best album to date…. “A delightful trip through funky dance tunes, hard-hitting vintage R&B, and lowdown Detroit soul and blues.”
Laura, who was raised in downriver Detroit, works in collaboration with her husband George Friend and in 2016 the duo won their ﬁrst Detroit Music Award for “Outstanding Blues Songwriters.” For this new album the band decamped to Magnetic Recording in Pontiac Michigan and using analogue equipment they’ve worked hard to create a sound that’s vintage R&B, mixed with hard-hitting soul and garnished with modern juke-joint blues… think Sharon Jones meets authentic, early Northern soul with a tough funk undertow. Sounds good to us…. watch out for a full review here @ SOULJAZZANDFUNK very soon.
