Rainy Miller is a multi-disciplinary artist and label owner hailing from Preston, England. Subservient to the northern city in which he was born and raised, the region’s near forgotten underbelly is sewn into the fabric of Rainy Miller’s life. The local Prestonian possesses a seemingly DIY approach to the arts, primarily as a musician, but isn’t bound to the term. Rainy Miller holds a heavily embellished view on context and perspective, homing in on the belief that “technicalities can be learnt, and perspective is something every one of us holds unique; just like DNA.” It’s this belief that sees the artist striving to push the boundaries within contemporary popular music, creating without limiting himself to any given genre.
“These cities and towns have people from every walk of life, sometimes all within a 5-mile radius. In order to portray the emotions and stories carried throughout these streets, it’s the use of characteristics in tonality and ideology behind styles of music that interests me, rather than the genre itself. The use of genre as different colours of paint, to create a wider picture instead of definition to box the music in, is the driving force behind the music I create. With the journey of the creation more important than the brush strokes.”
