You probably do not know about Rheanna Downey, a San Diego area singer/song-writer. Let me briefly introduce you. A few years ago, probably 2008 or 2009, when I was running a music venue/coffee house, I booked Rheanna Downey to perform. She is an independent folk/rock/pop singer with a crystal clear voice that gives a feeling of warmth in the lower register. Her guitar work is skillful and precise. Her songwriting is intelligent and well-crafted. There are Christian themes in her music but the music is probably more at home in a coffee house, house concert or other music venue then in a church worship service. She writes honestly and candidly about life and her struggles, though indeed from a Christian perspective. This is the kind of music that we need: it plants gospel seeds in a mainstream context and does that with artistic integrity, with the joy of the music front and center.
Rheanna has an album on iTunes: “Pull the Moon” (2011). I downloaded it a while ago and just recently got around to listening to it intensively. I wish I had done this earlier. Who knows? I might have been a slightly happier person if I had. She also has a web site: http://www.RheannaDowney.com. She is on Facebook and MySpace. If you are intrigued, I would suggest that you check out Rheanna Downey, and if you like it, download her album, and if you book artists for a music venue, especially in Southern California, consider booking Rheanna for a concert.
