Raylene has always loved to sing! And at 13 took up guitar, songwriting and later piano...performing at local shows, events, camps, weddings etc.
Moving on, Raylene entered a song competition held by TAMOSCAR for the first time in 1999 – with four entries. One entry “Where Can I Go” was placed in the top 12 out of almost 5,000 entries nation wide with the other three receiving a judge’s commendation. During this time she was involved in choirs and establishing a song writing group with other local songwriters…
Towards the end of 2001, Raylene studied music more in depth and eventually completing a Diploma of Music & a Diploma of Creative Ministry/Arts.
In 2005, Raylene started recording her debut album “Mystery” - her journey through the most difficult period of her life and the peace & tranquillity discovered amidst those storms.
2005 again - Raylene entered a song writing competition with the Australian Gospel Music Awards and was listed as a finalist with “His Love”... also on the album.
Some of her group performances include: Unity College concerts; Floriade; city wide inter-church events; Christmas concerts; and as part of the “Australian Idol Choir” at Parliament House, Canberra – hosted by Channel 10, in 2005.
Her soloist performances include events such as: 1Way FM Fund raiser concert; The National Gospel Happening; Young Cherry Picking Festival; 080808 A New Day for Australia; Assyrian Rally at Parliament House Canberra; Unity College Fundraiser Concert 2009 & 2010; Charity Philippines Fundraiser Concert and CD Launch, hosted by House of Honour as well as hosting her own concerts.
In putting together her debut album “Mystery” – it is hoped that you will inspired and encouraged to move beyond where you are and into the fulfilment of your God-given destiny.

Depends upon venue/event, but often will perform some songs from my CD (many songs on CD are uploaded as mp3 into my EPK) plus I always like to do some of my new songs and sometimes I will do covers or well known songs that the audience can engage with.
I usually work as a solo artist, or occassionally work with a band.
Performance always varies as per above outline and amount of time allocated
There are no upcoming dates at this time.
