Jenica’s music has depth, a wide emotional range and dynamic writing style. Her talent as a singer-songwriter, performer and instrumentalist reaches across a number of genres. Her lyrics are at once honest and direct, powerful and tender. Jenica tells our stories with her music.
In Kingston, Jenica collaborates with local musicians and performs in the Jenica Rayne Duo with Lynne Hanson, the Jenica Rayne Ensemble, and the Calamity Janes Band.
Rayne’s thought provoking songs are about personal and social consciousness. They artfully combine pop melodies with the lyrical sensibilities of the singer-songwriter genre and the storytelling of roots.
