WILL ARDELL grew up on a farm in Rock Point, Saskatchewan, amidst a strict, religious, and modest upbringing. He began writing poetry at a young age, placing first in a national competition and later placing internationally in his teens. Due to the confines of the religious culture in which he was raised, Will did not learn to play guitar until he was 19 years of age. Fast forward to present: He wrote all the songs on the double CD All About the Ride/Leaving (with the exception of one co-written track). Will received 5 2013 Saskatchewan Country Music Association nominations (Song of the Year, Single of the Year, Album of the Year, Video of the Year and Rising Star). He took home the Rising Star Award.

Kate Taylor & Kendall Turnbough started writing songs in Nashville, Tennesse in 2011. A writing relationship rapidly turned into a performance relationship as they realized blending their voices sounded dynamic and smooth all at the same time. As they were asked to open for many acts Burns & Poe, Restless Heart, Point of Grace & Phil Keaggy, they decided they needed a band name and CHERRY RAIN was born. Paying tribute to the "cherry state" where Kate grew up and choosing a name that portrays "colors" was important to them as they feel their voices and lyrics are colorful and display their many influences from Country, Pop and MoTown.
