REVIEWS (Night Sky, 2018)
“Raine Hamilton’s new album Night Sky is a warm, sweet stringed folk serenade to life’s beauty – the pain, joy and vibrance of our shared human experience.”
- Mitch Mosk, Atwood Magazine
“This is one of those singular albums that I could easily loop on my player during the workday and never tire of it. ”
- Great Dark Wonder
"Raine Hamilton’s storytelling is almost ethereal in its energy and tone. Her vocals never waver, and each song carries its own power."
- Rebecca Mattina, Canadian Beats

REVIEWS (Past Your Past, 2015)
" Past Your Past is a carefully crafted folk album that is gracefully familiar, and like Joni Mitchell's Blue, you'll want to listen to it over and over...Please, sit on your porch with your eyes closed and listen to this gem."
- Selci, Stylus Magazine
"Past Your Past is one of the best written albums I have listened to this year...I gave this album a 10 for writing - listen to it and you'll find out why."
- Nathaniel Deshpande, Latent Image Design
“I was stunned to hear something as clear and delicate as her voice ring out—commanding attention with its sensitive, open approach… with a rich musical history at play in her creation, there’s plenty of promise to be teased out of such a short entrance.”
- Eleni Armenakis, Gray Owl Point
"January is as pretty as a brooder can get - complimented by menacing strings and balanced out by Hamilton's sugary vocals."
- Nicholas Friesen, The Uniter
“A short collection of songs that are simultaneously earnest and mature.”
- Daniel Emberg, Stylus Magazine
" She started with a song she wrote for her family called “Everything” and it sounded like nature. Next up was a beautiful rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “Case of You”. Raine’s high notes gave me goose bumps, they were so sweet and pretty... I instantly fell in love with the prairie lyrics in “Aurora In The Meadow”.
- Ticketmomster, online reviewer
