““Their two part harmonies work really well as their vocals complement each other and the songs are pop-orientated in content, with sing-along choruses that would rock a large crowd. Strong vocally and with a hearty band behind them Paul and Claire are the hottest new duo to the country/Americana scene in the UK.””
The Maverick Magazine
““Raintown are a true breath of fresh air; they have come on to the Country Music scene and given it the kick start it needed, playing original songs that jump out of the speakers.””
Feile FM, Shine FM & CMR Nashville
"What can I say about Raintown? I love them, plain and simple. In all honesty, I think they're leading the way in the UK, showing these islands what TODAY'S country is all about. Raintown is on their way to the top. Trust me on that."
Cameron Tilbury Publicity
"I had the opportunity to interview Paul & Claire of the duo Raintown on my online radio show (based in Canada) recently. It's very clear from hearing them talk about their music that their hearts are not only in Country Music, but in keeping the emotion ever present in each song. To become a believer in their talent only takes hearing them sing a heartfelt ballad like ‘Picture of Us’ or hearing the fun & energy they put into ‘Love's Got a Hold On You.’ The world better get ready for this Country duo from Glasgow, Scotland as they have what it takes to find musical success beyond their homeland. Great songwriting, beautiful voices & honest delivery - that's what you get when you listen to Raintown (on record or live). I'm proud to have had the chance to feature them on my show."
In the Country
“I think Raintown are the hottest new property in British Country Music. They have certainly raised the bar for other Acts to follow. Paul & Claire are a wonderful young couple whose personalities are just as infectious as their music and live performance. It’s obvious that Raintown have an abundance of passion and talent. It’s great to see such a fresh, contemporary duo that is exactly what British Country Music needs today.
“The Country Café” CMR Nashville
“I was told to look out for an amazing duo in Scotland called Raintown. A few tracks were sent down and I was hooked on their original sound. We have since met and I find them two of the most professional young musicians with the right attitude that is going to give the UK their own hit Country/Americana act in the very near future.”
CMR Nashville/DJango Productions
“Raintown are just what the UK country scene needs. Paul and Claire are full of enthusiasm for what they do, are hugely talented as artists and songwriters, and have the drive, ambition, energy and determination to become successful. They are one of the few UK artists whose music can be played seamlessly alongside the big Nashville-produced country hits of today.”
UK Country Radio
“Raintown - This duo from Scotland have already created a big buzz in the industry with their debut single, Just One Kiss. They are being hailed (for the best of reasons) as Britain's answer to Lady Antebellum. The American supergroup are certainly a
major influence on Raintown but they bring plenty more
to the table. Paul Bain and Claire McArthur provide a
contemporary twist with exceptional harmonies. Their writing is straight from the heart, providing passion, honesty and hope.”
““Straight outta Glasgow come Paul and Claire, the new duo called Raintown. Imagine a two-member Lady Antebellum and you're pretty much in the right territory. Further proof, if it were needed, that credible Country music can originate in the UK when the artists have enough talent and the right artistic sensibilities.””
Voice of Country

“I loved the song “Just One Kiss” by Raintown and was impressed with the music and sound. I was happy to play a small part in their new venture and wish them well with their future efforts.
Moray Firth Radio
“Radio Clyde has booked Raintown a number of times for roadshows and events and Paul & Claire have always proved to be very popular with the crowds and clients. Raintown is a great act that deserves a place on any stage and I would thoroughly recommend them to any potential client or events organiser.
