“In mid-2007 I was by the Consumer Plaza in my van singing and Serani (of DASECA fame) heard me and he came over and said ‘yuh can sing’. Two days after that he saw me again, requested a demo and I said ‘no problem!’ I went home, got the demo together saw him the next day and he said ‘I love yuh voice and I want to work with you’. The link has been there ever since," Raine says.
One year and lots of hard work later Raine was crowned the first lady of the high-riding DASECA camp with her unforgettable R&B/dancehall sound, entering the musical stage with her solo single and video Drive Me Crazy. Not allowing for any rest Raine hit the world with a slew of collaborations including: Rain A Fall, Naked and Crying Out for Peace with Serani, Reserve with Bugle and Mentally Ill with lyricist Vybz Kartel.
Born on July 25, 1986, Raine has had a passion for music for as long as she can remember. Entering the first Digicel Rising Stars in Mandeville to pursue music, Raine only made it to the top 100 but never gave up. From 2004 - 2005 the singer was a part-time student at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts and in 2006 - 2007 continued voice classes with the distinguished voice trainer Georgia Schlifer.
Not neglecting school Raine has accomplished much, as she holds a Bachelor’s degree with honours in Marketing/International Business from the University of Technology. “I’ve had a genuine love for music ever since primary school. However, my parents thought it was best to get the right education before pursuing the music,” she says.
It is no surprise, then, that Raine has the full support of her family.
