This Georgia rooted worship group, “August Rain”, came about as a result of leading worship in their local church and crafting original worship music with a few early song collaborations started by Frank Bowen (percussionist), joined by fellow musicians Denise Bowen (keyboards & background vocals), John Griswell (guitar/banjo and background vocals), Erich Janzen (bass, keyboards and vocals) and front man, Matthew Janzen (lead vocals, acoustic and bass). The name “August” is due to an original song first performed in the month of August and “Rain” simply because a Georgia drought at the time kept the need for rain on the minds of everyone. “Obviously we needed physical rain, but we looked at rain spiritually as well ’cause we all have times in our life when we have drought and need God to send us rain.”-Matthew Janzen
