Inheriting a cross-pollinated love of both country and rock from their southern upbringing, Still Rain formed out of the sheer passion for performing music. Rena Wilson and Britt Hancock of Still Rain have always felt the drive to perform and create a band that was different than the status quo.
"We both were tired of playing in bands that played the same songs in the same order night after night", says Britt Hancock, the band's founder, "We wanted to do current, fresh material, from all genres, and have fun doing it". Even as they worked in different bands, they would spend nights at home playing together and planning on forming a new band that wouldn't be restricted by the cliches of their former bands. "We always knew we'd take the stage together - all we were waiting on was the right moment." That moment came in 2011, when - after years of working together in various bands - Rene and Britt decided to join forces with some like minded musicians and Still Rain was formed.
