Rain and sunlight are essential to life. True to that fact of nature, EmiSunshine and The Rain have been growing beautiful music since 2011.

Hailing from the mountains of East Tennessee, this close-knit family band is known for their unique blend of Country, Bluegrass, Americana, Blues and Gospel. The aptly titled album, “Family Wars,” is their most personal to date, with help from legendary Nashville record producer Tony Brown.

EmiSunshine’s mature lyrics, powerful voice, and masterful ukulele playing converge as never before, on “Family Wars,” with songs that cover such heady subjects as family strife, domestic violence, political corruption, love for America, the inevitability of mass violence in a polarized society, and more.

“The album is about working through different types of conflicts,” Emi said. “I’m just voicing my opinion about what I see going on in the world, but hopefully in a way that won’t offend. I’m looking at problems and trying to make something beautiful out of them.”

Like any healthy family, EmiSunshine and The Rain know how to give and take, working together for the good of the whole. Though “Family Wars” is a collaborative effort, the ten songs and one bonus track are stripped to their bare musical elements, keeping the focus on Emi’s powerful vocals. Besides Emi, the band consists of her father, Randall Hamilton, on upright bass, bass guitar and vocals; her brother, John Hamilton, on acoustic guitar, mandolin and vocals; and “Uncle” Bobby Hill on drums.
