Meet the team

RainPlay and SolPlay are the brainchild of Patrick and Alex, a British born father and son team who are both passionate about music. Dad is a hyperrealist artist specialising in life size paintings of classic cars He also restores classic cars and renovates ancient stone properties. Musically, He owns an extensive collection of vinyl albums, mainly obscure progressive rock albums from the 1970s, and is now the proud owner of an ex Rick Wakeman Yamaha C3 grand piano that he is learning to play using RainPlay.

His son Alex studied music for six¬†years and after a period living in Los Angeles where he worked as a music producer, he now builds complex specialised old school synthesisers for an eager and appreciative clientele worldwide He’s the brains behind the operation!

They both share a small workshop in the vaults beneath dad’s ancient stone farmhouse in the hills behind Nice, France where both RainPlay and SolPlay are hand built in small numbers.
