In 1999, a four-piece all female band named Raining Jane was formed at UCLA. In 2003, they decided that they were going to start touring.
Raining Jane played over 120 shows a year for over six years. The band didn’t go unrewarded; the unusual start to this indie-rock group was what helped them take off. In their six-year stint, they opened for UCLA alumnus Sara Bareilles and wrote the song “A Beautiful Mess” with Jason Mraz.
The eclectic quartet, comprised of a cellist, a guitarist, a bassist and a percussionist, all vocally contribute to the band. Their most recent album, Paper Nest, released in 2008, truly demonstrates their flexibility as artists by providing the listener with a unique musical experience.
From quirky upbeat tunes to mellow ballads, Raining Jane covers a huge range of emotions in their songs.
