Thunder and Rain is a four-piece acoustic Americana band from the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Consisting of acoustic guitar, mandolin, dobro, and upright bass, Thunder and Rain seamlessly blends their favorite elements of bluegrass, country, pop, and alt-rock to cultivate their own take on the American roots music traditions. Driven by the catchy choruses and dreamy melodies sung by Erinn Peet-Lukes, the band underscores her heartfelt songwriting with strong country grooves, lush harmonies and rich instrumental decoration.
Erinn formed the band in the fall of 2013 when she moved to Colorado from Brooklyn, New York. Since then, she has added the classical talents of Ian Haegele (upright bass), the smooth sounds of Chris Herbst (dobro/lap steel), the crisp chop from Dylan McCarthy (mandolin), and sometimes the beautiful melodies provided by Natalie Padilla (fiddle).
Thunder and Rain has played for audiences in Canada and Ireland, as well as across the U.S. Their meaningful lyrics and soaring choruses have connected with fans both young and old. They are now touring on the heels of their second full-length album, "Start Believing." Notable past achievements include being 2014 Rockygrass Band Competition finalists, #1 in Westword's Best Bluegrass Bands of 2016, and Erinn Peet-Lukes being a 2018 Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Competition finalist.
