We’re delighted to premiere the lyric video for UK artist Joe Martin’s brand new single, ‘Doesn’t Rain In L.A.’
Joe’s newest single comes hot on the heels of ‘Heartbreak Cult’ which he released to critical acclaim earlier this year, receiving airplay from Country Hits Radio and Chris Country Radio. Written in collaboration with a good friend and Nashville-based songwriter Vinnie Paolizzi, ‘Doesn’t Rain In LA’ grapples with the denial of not wanting a friend to leave their hometown and searches for a reason that will convince them to stay.
Shattering the illusions of Hollywood, the lyrics come as a warning of the brutal environment that awaits a girl chasing her dream to become an actor. While it speaks to Vinnie’s friend who was moving to LA when the pair wrote the song in 2018, the sentiment is universal and one to which all can relate.
“I guess most people have gone through the experience of someone close to them leaving town. It’s never a good feeling. Sometimes your emotions can become clouded and you might try and talk the person out of it. Maybe because you’re selfish, other times because you genuinely think they’re making the wrong decision.”
‘Doesn’t Rain In LA’ comes as the second instalment in a collection of songs Joe recorded with the Chorlton Country Club at the beginning of 2020.
