Whether you’re in the midst of an emotional storm or feeling saved from one, Ryan Beaver might be a ringer for knowing exactly how you feel. “You Were The Rain,” which Beaver released this week, is a bit of a follow up to his lead single “Dark”: “Dark” is thunder and lightning (literally) with strength in its midst, while his latest is the cool aftermath of the storm: “I was a wildfire and you were the rain.”
Tempered too are the sonics, which burn slowly alongside the lyric and capture Beaver’s signature vocal and simmering strum. The song, which Beaver wrote with Rodney Clawson, follows his standout album Rx, released last year. For fans of Beaver’s, the song will resonate and impress – for those just getting to know him, fans of artists ranging from Dierks Bentley to Randy Rogers and the Josh Abbott Band should find a sound they love.
