Idol Blue proves to combine the multifaceted artist’s traditional morose lyricism and blend of myriad of sounds and styles that bring him beyond the genre of conventional R&B. Rain brings a very subtle tone of sensuality and innocence to the album taking the listener back to a time of naive feeling of one’s young adolescent life.
“Idol Blue represents a spectrum of emotions. It travels through the idea of sacrifice self love; and finding myself in the same place i lost myself,” Rain describes of his second album Idol Blue.
Earlier this year, the artistic producer released three singles off Idol Blue including, the dual video/single release for “Peach” & “Seventeen”, co-produced by Hannibal Hector, and his latest record “I’m a Happy Camper (When the Sun Goes Down)”, which was accompanied by a visual inspired by Prince’s “Little Red Corvette”.
During a rough 2014 that found him uninspired, Johnny Rain took a 2-year hiatus from releasing music to build and develop his label Odd Dream.
Prior to his newly unveiled summer album Idol Blue, Rain has three free projects, one studio album, and a 6-song EP under his belt. Starting with WOUNDEDdrug, silentHIGH (December 2010); L.O.M (Lullaby Of Machine) (February 2013); and the notable, Villain [Nov. 2013]. All 3 free projects gave him the exposure needed to showcase and introduce his talent to the world.
