City Rain is Ben Runyan and Jarrett Zerrer. After releasing their debut LP Running Man in September 2010, they were voted Philadelphia’s band of the month by Deli Magazine and have been aired on local radio 88.5 WXPN. They have fine tuned their sound and style by playing lots of shows (World Cafe Live, Johnny Brendas, North Star Bar, Kung Fu Necktie…) in their city of Philadelphia and have made numerous trips to New York City and Washington D.C.
Named after the “cleansing and cathartic electric smell after it rains in the city,” City Rain is ready to undergo a similar rebirth – from one of Philadelphia’s best kept secrets to a formidable national electronic band. Having supported such buzz-heavy bands as The Dears, School Of Seven Bells, Telefon Tel Aviv, East Hundred and fellow Reybee roster mates Hank & Cupcakes, their buzz is beginning to resonate quite loudly outside of their hometown.
