The Sons of Rainier are exactly that, a group of Northwest songwriters as Northwest as it gets. The ringleader of the band is Devin Champlin. Champlin, based in Bellingham, Washington recently released a solo recording of folky, synth-y meanderings titled How to Change From Blue to Green.
Champlin’s musings are ones of casual desires. He sings in folksy observations and sometimes lets the instrumentals tell the story though finger-picking guitar or lo-fi electronics. It’s a wonderfully easy going record that continues to give more and more each listen.
