Muscian, singer and songwriter, she does it
all while dealing with her health issues. She is a wonderful story-teller whose lyrics

Rain has been playing the guitar and singing since she was fifteen years old. She said it
was the support of friends that finally convinced her to write her own songs. In her

have lost much to these diseases many times, but they cannot take that part of me
away. It is my source of hope."
