Raine Hamiton - NIGHT SKY:
Raine’s ethereal voice and lyrics are at the forefront of powerful and relatable tunes on Night Sky, written both in English and in French. Alongside cello + double bass, and with Raine on violin or guitar, these songs have a moving string quartet feel with a cosmic reach. The album tips between the earthly and the otherworldly; it is anchored in relatable lived experience, while reaching into the space just beyond, thinning the veil between here and there, affording safe passage to the rough and beautiful places.
