Rain & Shine

In only two short years Rain&Shine have become one of the leading lights in the ever-expanding reissue market. However, as well as uncovering some of the most sought-after holy grails around, their approach is unique in the fact that they give all profits back to the artists or their families. A small gesture to those artists that have impacted their lives so much over the years. “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.”
