SONG PICK: Neal Francis – Can’t Stop The Rain (Video)
Chicago singer, songwriter, and pianist Neal Francis just released the instantly irresistible “Can’t Stop The Rain.” It marks the second single from his upcoming album In Plain Sight, out on Ato Records come November 5th. With its 70s tinged piano and full-blown groovy vibe and the guitar chops of Grammy-winning Derek Trucks, “Can’t Stop The Rain” hits the sweet spot somewhere between Supertramp and Doobie Brothers. When asked about “Can’t Stop The Rain,” Francis says:
I’m owning up to all my problems within my relationships and my sobriety. So much of it is about coming to the understanding that I continue to suffer because of those problems. It’s about acknowledging that and putting it out in the open in order to mitigate the suffering and try to work on it, instead of trying to hide everything.
