20-year-old Londoner Rainy Milo blends jazz, hip-hop, R&B and pop into something effortlessly cool. Q Magazine called her 2014 debut album “a near perfect album,” Wonderland describes the album as, “sweet electronics and crisp R&B flavors in around her reedy, South London-tinged vocals like a warm blanket,” while Pitchfork describes her sound as “slightly oft-kilter expressive R&B.”
Rainy Milo attended London’s famed BRIT School, known for honing the talents of acts like Adele, Amy Winehouse, and Jessie J. At the age of 15, she uploaded her first track, “‘Bout You,” which had labels scrambling to sign her and caught the attention of Gilles Peterson for his Brownswood Bubblers compilation. That was soon followed by the mixtape, Limey, and the UK release of her debut album, This Thing Of Ours. Milo worked on the album with producers Cole M.G.N. (Grammy winning producer with Beck and member of Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti), Chet Faker, Sjowgren (fka Caswell), Daje and BLCK-RSSN.
After spending the last year working hard with collaborators from around the world, Rainy Milo is back and set to reclaim her spot with the release of a new single in November, the first single off her new album releasing early 2017 through her artist owned label, Limey Records.
