Pristine Raeign is the premier Tri-State purveyors of Pop, Soul, Funk, R&B, Motown and the Philly Sound.  This group of professional artists & their diverse sound has been building a buzz since they started playing and creating music together.

The band started in 2013 when singer/songwriter Shianne Ladale, one of the most charismatic and soulful singers out there today, met the talented time keeper Tina Young via a musician’s social network online.  Fueled by a mutual interest in jazz and their faith, the two started Pristine Raeign with the initial thought of marketing the group to casinos.  It became clear right away that original music was where Shianne’s heart was and Tina jumped on board with the idea knowing that it would take well-rounded musicians to capture the sound of the group.

The band was later joined by keyboardist/music instructor Daille Kettrell who spiced up the band’s mix with her blues and jazz improvisation.  Pristine Raeign made a lasting impression on Daille the first time she saw the group perform at a casino showcase.  So much so, that Daille pursued the group to be a part of it.  The union gave Pristine Raeign the unique edge that defines the band’s sound.

Added accents to the group are the soothing saxophone sounds of Michelle Danette, & bassman Willie O. Lemons III.  Michelle Danette is a smooth jazz gospel artist, the founder of Remnant Sounds, & her music has been described by many as “energetic”, “powerful”, “healing” and “forth-telling”.  Willie O. Lemons III holds the bottom down with his always funky bass groove & has been featured in Guitar Player magazine & Bass Player magazine. 

Pristine Raeign is so diverse that even radio DJs have a hard time categorizing them into the box of a genre.  According to Mark Rodgers of 93.7 WSTW the band has an “eclectic sound that is difficult to pin down to one genre.”  Event photographer and magazine writer, Dan Williams noted on two separate occasions “We enjoyed two complete sets last night and wished there was a third” and “That's a smokin' band right there!”  

The band’s performances bring back old memories and create new ones; head bobbin’, toe tappin’, finger snappin’ original and cover music to fit any venue.  Just imagine a band full of energy from the first note down to the last note; now that’s Pristine Raeign.
