Billy Rain

This folk/jazz rock group was built around enigmatic female vocalist Cat, who began her career singing jazz standards in clubs across southern England after travelling down from her native Northumberland. Her co-members had been Pete Evans (b. Wales), a self-taught guitarist, Pat Tedi (b. Somerset, Britain), a previous despatch rider as well as the group’s second guitarist, and bass participant and acoustic guitarist Pete Scott (b. Oxfordshire, Britain). Evans may be the 1st string in the group’s songwriting procedure, delivering fundamental chords and rhythms to which Kitty provides lyrics and melodies. Their audio, that they themselves christened ‘acoustic pop’ or ‘torch ballad’, was initially aired on an extended 1994 UK tour to get Brian Kennedy. These times were used to market their debut recording, Salad Times, released in Oct 1994 through Charlie Gillett’s Oval Information.
