Kady Rain might be the only person who ever took the recorder seriously. In her heyday, she could play Yankee Doodle faster than any person at her elementary school. It was an early sign of her strong interest in music and she loved expressing herself with an instrument. But she couldn’t sing and play the recorder at the same time, so she had to move on, because Kady knew from a very early age that she wanted to sing.
By the time she turned eleven, Kady was already trying to coordinate performances and perfect harmonies with the neighbor girls. Kady fondly recalls organizing a twenty person slumber party to create, in her eyes, the perfect performance. She did this over and over again, to songs like Mambo Number 5, hits by N*SYNC, Aqua, Eiffel 65, anything on the radio.
Kady’s urge to perform was so strong that by 13 she had started taking guitar lessons, aiming to learn “the entire Beatles catalogue”. Kady would also do karaoke on her front porch to the cars passing by, mostly singing the songs from her favorite CD at the time, John Lennon’s greatest hits.
At 15, Kady started her first band, The Pickpockets. With rock n’ roll in her heart, and a guitar strapped to her body, she played her first show at the Broken Spoke, a world famous honky tonk venue. Kady continued to play shows throughout high school, most notably at Ruta Maya. As fate would have it, a regular attendee of Kady’s shows was a classmate of Kady’s named Doug Helsel. Years later Doug would go on to be one of Kady’s collaborators, producing all of the tracks on her debut EP, All I Ever Wanted.
