Welcome to the official home page of the late Rainer Ptacek.   It’s been 20 years since Rainer shed his mortal coil, leaving us  a legacy of work that we continue to share and release.   Thanks to Fire Records, in 2017 -2020 we’ll be seeing the re-release and launch of Rainer’s entire catalog, celebrating the collective album of his songs  ‘The Inner Flame’ project as well as reissues of all his recordings.  Previously unreleased bonus material has been mastered and added to each project.

We hope you’ll enjoy discovering Rainer’s music for the first time, or that you are re-discovering this now out of print material.  Sit back and enjoy the work of Rainer, a musician, father, husband – he left too soon, but his work continues to inspire us.
