[Silver Rein] makes indescribably epic music, reminiscent of Dead Can Dance. . . not just music but an almost religious emotional experience that grabs a hold of your soul and refuses to let go for days afterwards.” - Youngiee Quennell of Ithaca's farm grrrl folk punk band, Motherwort
Silver Rein is one of the most unique musical acts in post-pandemic Ithaca.” - Nicole Costa, Ithaca-based artist and DJ @ Obvious Objects
. . . a powerful woman with a presence--but none quite has all that she has . . . ” - Kate Leboff, Production Coordinator at Cornell University Press

Silver Rein

Cello-centric Atmospheria

Silver Rein is an Ithaca NY-based performing artist, whose self-titled debut album explores feelings of isolation and belonging, life and death against the landscape of an old yet familiar world. 

Silver Rein performs and loops in real-time with an NS Design NXTa5 electric cello and Boss RC-600 loop station. Percussion arrangements are created with various found objects; with added effects, the beats are stored in the loop station to accompany live performance. Other song elements include original curated backing tracks, interspersed throughout.

Her voice and cello playing have been featured in numerous musical projects, including previous bands: Motherwort, Omega Defender, and The Great Confinement.
