Kaylens Rain Bringing Cool Change through Country in 2014
It certainly has been quite the year for Kaylens Rain – since the release of their debut album Found in October last year, Kaylee and Glen Harrison have multiple noteworthy achievements under their belts. The duo have been taking to stages at the Gympie Muster, Deni Ute Muster and CMC Rocks the Hunter along with their young dynamic band, as well as supporting Morgan Evans and appearing at the Australian Commercial Radio Awards (ACRAs), harnessing their live shows and proving to be more than just your average brother-sister act.
Says Glen of the past year of touring, “This year has been a blast we have had so much fun on tour and everyone has just been so supportive, we are so pumped for next year.”
Most recently, the sibling duo have been awarded two Golden Guitar nominations in the CMAA Country Music Awards in both the “Group or Duo of the Year” and “QANTASLINK New Talent of the Year” categories. Nominated alongside the likes of The Wolfe Brothers, Kaylee Bell, Ashleigh Dallas and the Adam Eckersley Band, Kaylens Rain are stoked to have been acknowledged in the same league as some of the best new talent in Australian Country Music and offer their congratulations to their fellow nominees.
Performing at the official nominations event at Sydney’s Hard Rock Café, it’s clear that Kaylens Rain has definitely developed into a live music unit that industry, as well as the public, have taken serious note of over the past year.
For the duo out of Sydney’s north west, the remaining months of 2013 are still packed with the goods, with their current single, “She’s a Wildflower”, continuing to build a strong radio presence since its initial service in October. A fitting follow up to the popular “Waiting on a Bus”, the newest Kaylens Rain track is one both Kaylee and Glen are excited about releasing.
For Kaylee, the past year really has been a dream come true. “We have had a ball this year touring and promoting the album. The support has been amazing and we can’t wait to keep living the dream in 2014”.
Already locking down a night time slot at the 2014 CMC Rocks the Hunter festival and a trip to Nashville in June, performing as part of the prestigious CMA Festival Global Artist Showcase (where they’ll be showcasing in front of some US Country Music heavyweights), plus much more in the pipeline, the next 12 months are looking to be massive for Kaylens Rain. A name already being talked about, the duo is planning on ensuring they remain at the front of the pack of great up and coming Australian country talent.
