Annalyse & Ryan “When The Rain” – Listen

When the rain comes down / Where you gonna run to baby / When I’m standing at the door / Wondering what for / When the rain comes down” husband and wife Americana duo Annalyse & Ryan sing – it’s a metaphor, of course.  Here the rain is the bad times and to make them worse there’s a hole in the roof – or a flaw in the relationship if you prefer.

It’s a classy haunted Gothic folk song drive by guitar and mandolin and the lovely contrast of vocals by Annalyse & Ryan – no wonder then that it was a finalist in the 36th Mid-Atlantic Song Contest run by the Songwriters Association of Washington.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
