RAANI (rah-nee) is a pop/soul singer-songwriter. Her musical influences range from Ray Charles to The Rolling Stones to Beyonce and The Shirelles. These artists not only leave RAANI in awe of their masterful musicianship, they also deliver their music with so much emotion and energy that it creates a very impactful experience for her. RAANI aspires to impact her listeners in the same way these artists have influenced her.
She just released her latest single ‘All My Ladies,’ which is nominated for a 2016 Edmonton Music Award in the best R&B/ Soul recording of the year category. 'All My Ladies' is available on iTunes, GooglePlay, Spotify and TIDAL.
RAANI released her debut self-titled EP in October 2014. Her single ‘Be Your Friend feat. Chips' received a 2015 Edmonton Music Award nomination for ‘Best Pop Recording’ and has been added to a variety of online radio stations. ‘Be Your Friend’ also received regular features on K94.5 radio in Moncton and garnered positive reactions on dance floors at various local bars and clubs.
She was one of seven Edmonton-based artists chosen to perform for the Edmonton Unplugged audition show, which aired for two weeks on Shaw TV Edmonton.
Currently, RAANI is writing new material for future single releases and is performing on stages around Edmonton.
“RAANI has the unique ability to maintain the delicate balance between making beautiful original art that is also accessible and marketable to the public. As a professional musician, working with an individual who understands the value of both these aspects when creating music is very refreshing.”
