Rain&Shine was established in April 2017. We are based in Tāmaki Makaurau (Auckland), Aotearoa (New Zealand).
Rain&Shine is represented by Prime Direct Distribution www.primedirectdist.co.uk who ensure our product is hitting shelves across Europe, Japan & USA, even here in Aotearoa!
We made an early decision to give all profits back to the artists/their families. Why? Musicians who recorded the music we focus on are not going to be around forever. Put simply we thought it would be a nice thing to do; recover the costs of pressing the records, but return all net profit to them. A small token of reciprocity for music that has been a big part of our lives.
We only pursue music previously unreleased or never re-issued and where we are certain the artists or their families can be directly involved and benefit financially.
