Named after an android from the original Star Trek series, Rayna is anything but robotic, and her music is a candid reflection of this. Fueled by life experience, her powerful, introspective lyrics speak of pride, love, change and loss and keep her humanoid audiences enthralled and connected. Fluid, stirring melodies and a deep vocal range make for a sound that is passionate and strong, yet distinctly feminine.
Rayna’s renewed fascination for outer space has inspired her latest project Space Stories. The music heralds back to a more dark electronic vibe, which has influenced this latest 2013 EP release. She has found her voice, not only musically, but lyrically as well. Space Stories offers tales of adventure, fears of leaving home, exploration, ethics and human mistakes. This dark and pensive album will surely give listeners something to think about.
The year 2006 saw the release of Rayna’s debut album, Empty Room which brought her songs to life via the full instrumentations implicit in her acoustic/vocal arrangements. Having established a high internet profile, Rayna's music has attracted attention and support locally from broadcasters such as XM Radio, Humber Radio, IndieCan Radio and globally from numerous podcasters. Her songs and voice have also been prominently featured in independent films and networks such as HGTV, PBS, Pet Network and HBO Canada.
