Folk Americana group The Raines (Ruth Dillon, Juliana Erkkonen and Yvonne Tiernan) are back with the release of their remarkable fifth single ‘Leaves Shake’ this Friday 25th November, taken from their forth coming debut album. Following a standout year for The Raines that saw the release of their critically acclaimed single ‘Another Lover’, a sold-out Irish Tour and appearances on the esteemed “Sunday with Miriam O'Callaghan" and “The Ray D’Arcy Show” on RTÉ Radio 1, their new single ‘Leaves Shake’ is sure to finish their year off on a high note.

Speaking about their latest single Ruth reveals “Leaves Shake is a reflection on the quiet resilience of a woman and all she carries throughout her life, using the analogy of a tree whose boughs bend under the weight of wind and rain, but is full of strength from its roots. Both find their power even after the storm”.

‘Leaves Shake’ was written by Ruth Dillon and was recorded in various locations by Ivan O'Shea and Juliana Erkkonen. Ruth Dillon is on vocals and guitar, Juliana Erkkonen on vocals and fiddle with Yvonne Tiernan on vocals and percussion. Guest appearances are made by Sam Wright on bass and Tom Portman on dobro.

The award winning Producer Brian Masterson famous for his work with The Chieftains, Van Morrison, Willie Nelson and The Bothy Band, to name just a few mixed and mastered the track.

The Raines play two exclusive intimate December shows, The Creel, Westport, Co. Mayo on Saturday 10th December, tickets available on www.thecreel.ie (with a limited number of tickets available at the venue) and An Taibhdhearc, Galway City on Friday 23 rd December, tickets available via eventbrite.ie ‘Leaves Shake’ is out this Friday 25th November across all of the major digital platforms.
