The new album, which will be released June 17, features more of the melodic hard rock sound Rains has become known for. Tracks like “Radio Song," “Better Man” and “Believe” delve deep into Rain’s psyche while tracks like “Hero” cross over into a more mainstream arena. From The Ashes even includes a dynamic cover of Kanye West's “Heartless."
When Jeff Rains began his professional journey into the music industry 12 years ago, it was equal parts ambition and naivete. Both were important catalysts that enabled him to push forward as an independent artist during a time when major label record deals were still considered part and parcel of any artist’s success.
