"My Beautiful Dear" was a FINALIST in the Blues & Roots Radio International Songwriting Contest and tells a quintessential love story over the decades.
“My god this woman has a beautiful voice, and this song is a total tear-jerker about the loss of a life-long partner. It’s got beautiful instrumentation and harmonies too. It’s not hard to see how Raina won the Newmarket Arts Council Songwriting Competition in 2016 or why she was nominated for a Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award. Raina was raised in a folk music family and is a veteran of Toronto venues such as the Free Times and the El Mocambo. How have promoters not discovered her? If you’re a promoter, you should really listen to this!”
”Krangle’s latest song, though written about her parents, taps into a theme we can all get behind: musical therapy. After suffering a traumatic brain injury less than a year ago, the Canada-based folk singer-songwriter Krangle has turned to meditation and music to recover and look towards a brighter future. A song that will appear on her upcoming album, Headbangers – A Musical Recovery From Mild Traumatic Brain Injury, “My Beautiful Dear” leverages John Prine-style acoustic guitar to soothe the listener and beautifully narrate a story of love, connection, and hope.”
A mix between Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt and Joss Stone, Raina can go toe to toe with any one of them. With strong, yet soothing vocals, Raina delivers poignant songs with catchy melodies, heartfelt lyrics that truly connect with the human spirit and a signature folk/rock style that is uniquely her own. Her song writing often explores the uplifting themes of love, life, and spirituality as well as the environmental and political.
