SINGER

Sarah Rayani is a singer and songwriter, working in New York City. Originally from London, UK, with a Swedish and Indian background, she was vocally coached from the age of 9. A strong Mezzo Soprano, she was trained with classical technique, until she decided to change directions and concentrate more on contemporary music. Sarah sings a range of styles from Jazz to Soul to Pop, and even Rock/Folk. Her first demo, recorded in 2008, showcased her love for Motown and the sultry soul in her unique voice. More recently, through experimenting with new sounds and working with various musicians and engineers in the creative powerhouse that is New York City, Sarah has been developing her own new style. She blends pop and electronic music with rich undertones from her diverse heritage. There are Indian and Middle Eastern currents, along side whimsical and yet classic European pop. The result is both catchy and distinct, while still showcasing her beautiful and unique voice as the focus. Sarah has sung on collaborative tracks with various rappers in New York and Seattle, including Maino, Dash Speaks, GodSpeed and the Soul Merchants. She has performed at the world famous Knitting Factory, Don Hill\'s, Public Assembly and Sullivan Hall in New York and also various venues in her hometown - London, UK. She is currently a voice student of the esteemed Julliard graduate and Virgin Records recording artist, jazz singer Rondi Charleston. Rondi say\'s of her student, \"Sarah Rayani posesses not only a beautiful voice, but the genuine talent and discipline to carry her far in the music world.\" She also trained with Tenesha Jackson of Big Drawz, who has worked with many artists including Destiny\'s Child and Avril Levigne. On her previous 5 track demo, which was recorded and produced by Blastoff Productions, Sarah wrote all the songs and also worked with live musicians to create an authentic and vintage feel. The original beats came from Marvin Caliste of the well-known Swedish rap group Fjarde Varlden, and vocal production by Avery Storm (Universal). Sarah is also a professional dancer and was cast and appeared as a Belly Dancer in Sex and The City 2.
With a new Demo out including originally written songs, produced by Blastoff Productions and Producer Daniel Lynas, as well as various collaborative tracks with Producers on both sides of the Ocean, Sarah is constantly producing more songs and good music.
