JAZZY FUNKY DIVA!
Blend a Soulful synthesis of Jazz Fusion with a dash of R&B and Funk and what do ya get?.. You get the Vocal Stylings of RAHNE! You’ll enjoy her playful interaction with the crowd as she uses her Vocal Artistry to take you on a musical escapade filled with good vibes, high rockstar energy and the perfect amount of mellow grooves to satisfy the ‘Grown & Sexy’!
A Florida Native of Cherokee, Creek and Navajo heritage, RAHNE was born with an intrinsic awareness of the divine aspects of music. RAHNE inherited her vocal gifts from her father (George I. Johnson Jr.) who was a highly celebrated Vocalist with the US Air Force Band throughout Southeast Asia and also credits him as her first musical inspiration. She attributes her spiritual awareness, innate understanding of metaphysical concepts and deep connection with the beauty in nature to her mother (Elizabeth Johnson) who is of strong Native American ancestry.
Her musical abilities landed her an opportunity to co-write with Grammy Nominated and Juno Award Winner, Eddie Bullen. The release of her 1st CD with Acid Jazz band Achanti (produced by Eddie Bullen at Thunder Dome Sounds Studio) lead to performances at the NXNE Music Festival and the JVC Acid Jazz Festival in Toronto, as well as sharing the stage with Roy Ayers and The Roots.
It’s a little known fact that RAHNE is a huge fan of Rock music and actually began her career in the music industry touring as a Background Vocalist with progressive metal band, Crimson Glory. While on tour, RAHNE learned how to command an audience from Rock music giants such as KISS, Ozzy Osbourne, Alice Cooper, Alice in Chains, Metallica, David Lee Roth, Crimson Glory and comedian Sam Kinison to name a few!
Rahne was recently selected to perform during New York Fashion Week as a Guest Artist in the NY Fashion Music Conference. Her performance in New York City caught the eye of the founding father of Jazz-Rock Fusion and Legendary Motown Funk Brother, Mr. Antonio Tony Newton! Newton has recorded and toured with Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson just to name a few. Rahne is ecstatic to announce that she and the Legendary Mr. Tony Newton have teamed up to write and produce new music for her upcoming EP so stay tuned for that!
