Rain For A Day biography
The history of RAIN FOR A DAY has its roots in 1994. In fact it was the 15th of July 1994, when the18-year-old singer Miriam Schell and the 22-year-old musician Matthias Harder met each other in a club near Hamburg. It was a cheerful evening, since both of them were performing with their own Bands (Matthias as the drummer of CHAMÄLEON, who later became the well known progressive rock band SYLVAN).

Who would have guessed that this encounter had been the birth of a long lasting partnership in song writing and lead to a work full of depth, immense emotion and wide sound spectrum.

With their new album "Elemental" RAIN FOR A DAY are not only proving the maturity they gained through out the years, but also an impressive independence in style.

Northern melancholy and the pulsating big city nights of their hometown Hamburg gave inspiration to their creation of a sound reflecting urges and longings. Matthias Harder loves to connect sweet melodies with dark arrangements that find their climax in epic scenarios. As soon as they are embraced by Miriam Schell's voice full of tender warmth and consoling narration, it captures you and drags you off into an emotional landscape full of passion and depth.

As well as other bands and artists RAIN FOR A DAY had always been marked by time and went through phases of euphory and dejection. When they had just begun the manufacturing of their first self produced album "Marbles" in 1996 the music industry became attentive to them, but preferred watching their further development to signing a contract.

The receipt of the John-Lennon talent award in 1997 led to a number of concerts in Germany, among which they played in the garden of chateau Bellevue, the residence of the former German President Roman Herzog, at the G8 economic summit in Cologne and in the exclusive VIP-Lounge of Eric Clapton as he performed in Berlin in the scope of hisworld tour.

In 1998 after having finished their second album "High on a Hill" they got to work together with the famous German photographer Jim Rakete.

In that period of time Matthias Harder and Miriam Schell tried to reach o a broad audience with the help of producer Jens Lück. They even had the chance to participate at the preliminary of the European song contest. But as they found out that they were supposed to not perform their original material and dispense with their own members, they decided not to agree to those conditions, which was a turning po...

Review by sunhillow

4 stars This is actually the third cd of the 'band', which is in fact merely a sideproject of Sylvan- drummer Matthias Harder. On this cd he plays keyboards, and the music is much more singer-songwriter-influenced than his more known Sylvan-stuff. But the production is crisp clean, the songwriting is hauntingly beautiful and the voice of Miriam Schell is too good to be true. This band should be marketed better though, not as a mere sideproject of Sylvan. There's a lot of potential here, for fans of any female-lead music will adore this. Not just for Sylvan-fans, but also for fans of Paatos, The Gathering, Magenta, etc.

Surely recommended, but more people should know about this band.

Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to for the last updates
