Reggae Fusion Band Raynbird takes Flight

For years, Reggae and Dancehall have been strong genres of music in the Caribbean and are now slowly taking over mainstream music. With the influence of the internet and cable tv, these two genres have found it's way on popular radio stations where artistes like Drake, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown and many others have found a way to merge their sounds with Reggae and Dancehall to create what is known as a fusion.

The Haute Lifestyle have recently discovered the Reggae fusion band Raynbird on Instagram and we just knew we had to introduce them to you. The lead singer Rayner is Jamaican born and has found a way to fuse his reggae sound with that of his team members.

About the Band

The first album “The Beginning” was a solo work that aimed at fusing traditional 1970s -1990s
era reggae and dancehall with electronic music. The album was met with positive reviews from
Irie magazine and was featured in the April 2017 world reggae edition.

Raynbird now draws on the eclectic background of each of its members to create a modern
and unique reggae sound. The band fuses jazz-inspired chord progressions with southern rock,
but still retains the classic reggae rhythm and feel that we know and love. The band also
incorporates sounds and instruments not typically associated with reggae on their studio
recordings such as slide guitar, live and electronic instruments, classic dub sound effects, world
instruments like darbukas, shakers, zills etc. The band is most frequently compared to Pepper,
yellowman and has even been called the Jamaican Santana.

The Team

Rayner - Jamaican born lead singer, acoustic rhythm guitarist
Austin – Lead/slide guitarist and back up vocalist
Johnny Pruitt – Drummer
Ambre– Percussionist and backup/lead vocalist
Sam – Bassist.
