“If I could sing like Waylon, write like Jamey and perform like Chris Ledoux, this would be something!” Country music has always rung close to Calvin Rainwater’s heart. A country singer, performer and songwriter, Calvin is before everything else, a storyteller and when he writes music, he writes it from his heart, often finishing up entire pieces in a single sitting.
"I have had the immense pleasure to be in the audience when this "Outlaw Man" performs his magic on the guitar, with his uniquely deep voice, as he serenaded the crowd; singing beautifully to gripping music from his own pen. When he performs, you HAVE TO watch and listen! The songs make you feel that they are written about you, very relatable lyrics. This man has talent oozing from him, has "IT" going on. Can't wait to hear him again! I hate to label him as 'country'; but, the music takes me back to that genre, where it feels like home! Sure you will experience that too! His set leaves me waiting and wanting to hear more. Having had the opportunity to meet him, I can also tell you he is a remarkable man as well. Hope to post clips soon!"- Lisa Brinkmeyer
Raised in a small town in Arizona, Calvin has always felt a passion for music. Drawn to his grandfather’s guitar, he would often spend hours sitting on the lowest branch of his grandmother’s orange tree, playing around with the guitar and singing Don Williams to the sound of it. He began taking guitar lessons from a neighborhood friend’s father at the age of eight.
A tragic family accident and the loss of his brother drove him away from his hometown and he relocated to Phoenix. Leaving his home transformed his life and had a profound effect on his music. When sitting down to write, Calvin often reflects on his achievements and failures, thoughts and feelings until he finds the special spark that will bring his next song to life.
Having recently captured the attention of an investor, Calvin Rainwater was able to have a Nashville producer help him complete three of his latest songs and now has a band backing him up for live performances and is on the verge of releasing his very first EP later this year. Despite his success, he sees himself as a small part of a giant world and does his best to leave his mark by inspiring others.
His own inspiration, however, is none else but his fans. It is the connection he makes with others that makes him feel elated and feeds his creativity; often, he finds himself forming relationships through his songs and having strangers turn into best friends simply through the magic of his music.
