Rayannah finds success by combining her voice with cutting-edge technology

Rayannah is making her first five recorded songs count.

The response to the Winnipeg singer-songwriter’s debut EP, Boxcar Lullabies, has been strong enough to keep her on the road for the two years since its release, including playing 26 shows in the last month as part of a European tour alongside fellow Winnipegger Matt Epp.

Rayannah’s slowly winding down the promotion of the record, but has been announced as the next performer at the Free Press’s Sunday Brunch Collective series, which takes place March 5 at Kitchen Sync (370 Donald St.) in the Exchange District.

There are a few things that help Rayannah — a formally trained jazz vocalist — stand out; one is her inclusion of loop pedals, which she uses to combine layers of her voice manipulations — lyrics, breathing, scatting — with synthesizers and percussion to create equally dense and delicate moments of music.
