Hailing from Raleigh, North Carolina, Lemon Sparks is an original ‘roots pop’ band blending sophisticated psychedelia, power pop, timeless folk, and jazz. 

Band members Jeff Carroll (guitar) Rick Lassiter (bass) and Greg Tourian (drums) pulled double duty providing a variety of instrumentation and production on each of Raincloud in the Sun’s ten original songs.

Guest musicians on the album include Peter Holsapple (dBs, REM, Continental Drifters), Todd Montgomery (Big Chief), and Don Kerr (Ron Sexsmith, Rheostatics, Bahamas).

Lemon Sparks’ winsome, sturdy songs build upon a rich balance of melody and dissonance. The band skillfully glides across multiple golden eras of guitar pop with masterful playing and considerable attention to sonic detail.
