Raylene has always loved to sing! And at 13 took up guitar, songwriting and later piano...performing at local shows, events, camps, weddings etc.
Moving on, Raylene entered a song competition held by TAMOSCAR for the first time in 1999 – with four entries. One entry “Where Can I Go” was placed in the top 12 out of almost 5,000 entries nation wide with the other three receiving a judge’s commendation. During this time she was involved in choirs and establishing a song writing group with other local songwriters…
Towards the end of 2001, Raylene studied music more in depth and eventually completing a Diploma of Music & a Diploma of Creative Ministry/Arts.
In 2005, Raylene started recording her debut album “Mystery” - her journey through the most difficult period of her life and the peace & tranquillity discovered amidst those storms.
