Kady Rain might be the only person who ever took the recorder seriously. In her heyday, she could play Yankee Doodle faster than any person at her elementary school. It was an early sign of her strong interest in music and she loved expressing herself with an instrument. But she couldn’t sing and play the recorder at the same time, so she had to move on, because Kady knew from a very early age that she wanted to sing.
By the time she turned eleven, Kady was already trying to coordinate performances and perfect harmonies with the neighbor girls. Kady fondly recalls organizing a twenty person slumber party to create, in her eyes, the perfect performance. She did this over and over again, to songs like Mambo Number 5, hits by N*SYNC, Aqua, Eiffel 65, anything on the radio.
Kady’s urge to perform was so strong that by 13 she had started taking guitar lessons, aiming to learn “the entire Beatles catalogue”. Kady would also do karaoke on her front porch to the cars passing by, mostly singing the songs from her favorite CD at the time, John Lennon’s greatest hits.
At 15, Kady started her first band, The Pickpockets. With rock n’ roll in her heart and a guitar strapped to her body, she played her first show at the Broken Spoke, a world famous honky tonk venue. Kady continued to play shows throughout high school, most notably at Ruta Maya.
Kady cycled through a number of different musical projects as she went through her early twenties, including a short stint as the frontwoman for a sludge metal band, and a brief hiatus from normal life when she saved up enough money for a six-month road trip across the country. By the summer of 2014 however, Kady realized she needed to get serious about her career, and she already had someone in mind for her new project. Ben Bazzrea was staking his claim as a songwriter when he and Kady reconnected over a cup of coffee. They had worked together at Starbucks several years previously and would talk about pop music for hours during their shared shifts. After noticing the strong similarities between their visions, they decided to team up. Two years later, the All I Ever Wanted EP was released on August 26th 2016, to overwhelmingly positive reviews, with Wolf in a Suit naming Kady Rain one of The Top 5 New Indie Queens of Music.
Fast forward two years, four remixes, an additional release and several million plays across all platforms later, Kady Rain is releasing new music May of 2018 with more music to come.
