about

Rain the Shining Baltimore, Maryland

Formed many years ago, Rain the Shining played shows, figured out recording, and wrote many songs without much ambition to do more than that. Now their shared ambition is raising good kids.

Sketches in a Crowded Kitchen is a series of demos written, performed, + recorded by founder, Ryan Smith in his kitchen—a hold over until RtS returns to original form featuring Jonny Byslma and Mike Van Meter.

Track Name: Timshel
Countdown
Until the explosion.
So cover your ears
And shield your eyes
Get in. Get in! Sit down.
It’s true the explosion
Will spawn more fear
And feed on life.

From the blast radius
We’ll barely get hurt.
But, as long as we stay in
This station wagon.
Filled to the gills
Weaving between
Stalled cars.
People haul all of their
Baggage.
A light takes control
Here’s hoping it never gets dark.

Timshel. Thou mayest redeem thyself.
Time will tell. The way is open. All is well

Countdown
Until the explosion
So cover your ears
Here, let me drive.

Weeds are seen for miles.
Hey. We're kind of like those weeds
Aren't we? Finding light between seams
From the deep. Inside for miles and miles they rise. Rise

From the ash made of us
Rebuild and get up.
As long as we don't stay
Stationary.
Filled to the gills
Weaving between
Stalled cars.
People haul all of their
Baggage.
A light takes control
Here’s hoping it never gets dark.

Timshel. Thou mayest redeem thyself.
Time will tell. The way is open. All is well.
