The Raynbird sound is one that’s continually evolving.
The first album “The Beginning” was a solo work that aimed at fusing traditional 1970s -1990s era reggae with electronic music.
Since that album Raynbird has grown in both membership and musical depth and creativity.
Raynbird now draws on the eclectic background of each of its members to create a very modern and unique reggae sound that’s fun and interesting. We like to think of Reggae in a more global sense, so we start by building on Rayner’s vocal lines and groovy reggae inspired basslines then add a touch of Funk, Jazz and Blues courtesy of Austins guitar riffs.
The rhythm section features Jon’s solid and innovative drum beats and Ambre’s arsenal of middle eastern and African percussive instruments some of which aren’t typically found in Western music.
We also give the music a more modern feel by incorporating synthesizers, electronic instruments and sound effects typically associated with trance music.
Our goal is to bring Reggae into the modern age, to make it more global in appeal and add our own take on it without losing the spirit of the music we all love and enjoy.
We hope you enjoy our music.
