“Her Love Falls Like Rain” – Willie Nile


From the 2009 album “House of a Thousand Guitars,” is a lovely ballad by Willie Nile.  Nile is an immensely talented singer-songwriter who always seemed on the verge of breaking big, but never did due to various circumstances.   He recorded some albums in the early 1980s for Arista with members of the Patti Smith Group as backup musicians.  Pete Townsend was such a fan, he hired Nile to open some dates for the Who back in the 1980s.  Among his fans and backing musicians over the years: Bruce Springsteen, Richard Thompson, Loudon Wainwright III, Roger McGuinn, and many others.  A vastly terrific and underrated talent.
