August Rain is known for their diverse sound and unique appeal of music, giving them the ability to reach people of all walks of life. Evidenced by their versatility between Southern Rock, Blues, Folk, and Gospel Christian, August Rain speaks to both Christian and secular audiences with a focus on hope and encouragement for today's life challenges. Their heart is to give the listener an experience that goes beyond the immediate, or as one industry executive endorses, "A music style that you just can't get out of your head in a good way!"
August Rain first gained national recognition in 2007 upon the release of their first single “Yahweh Highway” followed with “Wonderful Savior” and then “Show Me Your Light” which hit the Billboard chart in 2012 at #42 as “Hot Shot Debut." It peaked at #35, gaining airplay on national network K-LOVE in 2012. They have shared the stage with December Radio, Laura Story, Aaron Shust, Bluetree, Lindsay McCaul, the JJ Weeks Band, and many others. They were named “Worship Artist Winner 2012” by The Big Ticket Festival and have also performed at AtlantaFest as well as the annual Jasper Jam Music Festival.
This Georgia rooted worship group came about as a result of leading worship in a local church, crafting original worship music with a few early song collaborations started by Frank Bowen (percussionist), who was joined by fellow musicians Denise Bowen (keyboards & background vocals), and front man, and Matthew Janzen (lead vocals, acoustic and bass). The name “August” is due to the bands beginnings in the month of August, and “Rain” was added because a Georgia drought at the time kept the need for water on the minds of everyone. “Obviously, we needed some physical rain man... but we looked at it all with spiritual eyes as well. Everybody has times of drought. We all need the Father to send us some of His rain.”
A year into formation, they embarked on recording their original music with their first CD (self titled) released in 2008 bringing a fresh sound and fresh voice to Christian music. The sound of August Rain showcases their broadened dynamics in musical style within the overall production of their 2011 album "Time" with the song “Show Me Your Light," an upbeat song with a positive message. The single "Show Me Your Light" was re-recorded with added instruments and the feature vocals of the lead man from the popular group "Third Day," Mac Powell.
The new album "American Jesus" began its thoughts late into 2014 after the band almost decided to call it quits. "We wrote this album about real life. Our life. We want people to listen, but we pulled all the frills off and just zipped open our hearts. What you listen to here is true blue August Rain." They hope that this album will point people to the only One who really matters, and away from the "American Jesus" product that has become popular and trendy in this modern age.
