Raine Hamilton is a singer-songwriter based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Her forthcoming 2022 full-length album, Brave Land, is a concept album about mountains, and the courage, wisdom, and other worldly connection they represent. The new album will be released slowly over the course of a year, with the first single out on January 22, 2021. Leading up to the release she’ll share roughly 1 song per month, of the 11 song album, along with the stories of the songs and other super secret content.
Raine believes that music is for everyone, and that we all have something to share. An experienced educator, she offers workshops in songwriting and fiddle tune writing (EN/FR). She also offers concerts with American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation, to help make live music and the community that comes with it more accessible to the Deaf community.
Raine is the recipient of the 2018 Canadian Folk Music Award for Emerging Artist of the Year. She has toured Canada extensively, driving, flying, and floating her way coast to coast. Highlights include: Performing songs with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra (3 times!), performing with the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra, playing a show in a cave (10 stories below the earth!), playing festivals across Canada (Vancouver Folk Festival, Vancouver Island Music Fest, Atlin Festival, Home County, Filberg Fest, Lilac Fest, Harvest Moon, Trout Forest), playing for her passage on Via Rail, and meeting so many amazing humans along the way.
