Detroit’s own Laura Rain and The Caesars have been putting a lot of miles on their Ford V8 motor the past couple years. After releasing their third album (Gold in 2015), the band has continued their heavy touring schedule performing everywhere from Paris, France to San Francisco, CA bringing their unique Motor City funky soul to a new audience.
The band have just released their fourth album of original Motor City Soul-Blues-R&B. Walk With Me is Laura Rain’s best work to date. A delightful trip through funky dance tunes, hard hitting vintage R&B, and lowdown Detroit soul and blues. Recorded to tape (mostly live) with organ and horns driving the beat, Laura Rain again demonstrates she is a unique and powerful singer with authenticity and presence.
Raised downriver Detroit, Laura Rain sings with exceptional skill and power. She thrives on hard work, dedication and resolve. Her ability to deliver her own songs with fearless emotion and excitement while performing is genuine, and startling to witness. When she met her band mate (now husband) George Friend, the two shared a interest in creation. The pair have recorded their latest album at Magnetic Recording in Pontiac MI. Walk with Me is a continuation of their locally grown original vintage r&b, delivering the band’s hard-hitting soul and modern juke-joint blues. From the driving Motown beat and stinging guitar of the title track, to the 80's dance funk of “Pleasure Zone,” Laura Rain uses her voice to engage the listener from sexy provocation, and a call to arms.
