Singer Songwriter, and Musician Sam Regalado Becomes A New Coast Records Artist.
Singer Songwriter, Musician, Founder of the band Big Rain, and New Coast Records. Ever since the age of six years old Bruce became interested in music. It all started as a little boy when he heard an old Billie Holiday recording. It touched him so deeply that he started singing and playing an old beat up upright Piano that had been handed down through the family. He said "I think I drove everyone crazy with the need to bang on that old Piano, and find comfort as a child through music. Though it was out of tune, and I had no idea what I was doing, I just loved all the sounds I could make with it. I remember when I wrote my first song about a girl I was just crazy about. I was so proud of that song". Coming from a broken home Bruce found that music helped him escape from the realities of a hard childhood. It has helped him cope with those difficult times.
Starting out professionally as an Indy Artist on his own label Umbrella Records, Bruce released his first full length album "Sound of Freedom" in 1996. It gained regional appeal. Bruce and company began to perform throughout the Northern, and Central Coast of California. With local air play they became an established artist. Big Rain put out two more albums that were noticed by the industry
and signed with the label Oak Records.
That fourth album went National, and International.
Bruce's Music is on Radio Worldwide.
From 2004 - 2012 he has landed two number one songs, six top ten, and top thirty songs on the the radio and music charts in USA, Europe, Australia, and Japan. Since then Bruce has gone back to his Independent ways releasing a fifth album, "The Big Rain Cafe", and is rolling out the sixth full length CD "Ocean of Souls"'. One of the songs "Recipe For A Broken Heart" has charted in the # 5 on the USA Roots Music Radio Charts, and # 23 on the Pan-European CMA Radio Charts.
