One of iLive's personal favourites is returning to the stage with mellow country blues. Singer / Songwriter Raie joined by Jordan Brown on bass guitar, Jamie Coe on electric guitar and Nathan Devonte on background vocals ... a small and very sweet band of troubadours!
Map Cafe have re-opened their doors after a long silence and I am proud to be headlining one of the first autumn season evenings with Caroline Archer playing support. Come along for a nite of original songs - some new ones in there! - and a new Raie sound. I'll be there with Jordan Brown on bass and Jamie Coe on electric guitar. Nathan Devonte will also be joining me on background vocals, its a little further along the Country route than before and we'd love you to join us.

Bio: Raie’s sound is a blend of Soulful Rhythm ‘n Blues with a hint of Country.
Truth and love continue to be a driving inspiration for Raie in her work with music. She believes that music has the power to transform peoples lives.
“Raie is one of life’s trip-me-up revelations. A purveyor of pin-me-to-the wall, beautiful life-enhancing soul music. A sweet, certain surprise… The sad state of the record industry is such that she hasn’t got a contract. A real stinker, when you hear this self-financed primer. There’s a host of internationally-recognised musicians backing Raie on this EP – from guitarist Elliott Randall (ex-Doobie Brother), to Jon Klein (ex- Siouxie and the Banshees) help move things along, but the fact of the matter is that Raie is the star - this CD is lead by her astonishing voice and incredible, lyrics. Opener ‘Wax N Wane’ is lyrically amazing - romance meets reality, in fact, the whole of the ‘Earthbound’ CD is an unsettling mixture of sweet music, mixed with world-weary lyrics The standout title track is phenomenal – a minimalist piano-lead ballad that builds up to one of the most soul-enhancing music that you’ll ever hear.”
