Spanish Town, St Catherine, Jamaica — We all have a journey and believe it or not the main goal is to step into our purpose and greatness. The truth is some struggle and die without ever connecting to their epiphany or truth.
What does it mean to be cultured organically in your passion for music and instruments while experiencing financial woes? Just ask 25 year old singer Ra’Shain.
On February 16, 1997 a star was born. Her name is Rashaine Bean, but her fans and the world will know her as Ra’Shain.
Her style can be genred into Reggae RnB fusion. Her sound is eclectic and she has resonance with the likes of Dennis Brown, Maxi Priest and Anita Baker.
Her Debut Single entitled First Crime featuring the Legendary Dean Frazer produced by Imihj Media and Pryme Inc was released January 2022 and is being distributed by VPal Records, Since it’s release its gaining steady traction with positive likes and comments from all over the world
A Kingstonian from birth, Ra’Shain grew up with her brother at Cassava Piece in a two parent household.
As early as three Ra’Shain wowed to the people around her and distinctly recalled a startled landlord expressing to her parents that she would be a star. As soon as she could speak her church family would have her singing for the congregants in solos and on the choir. She was then introduced to music classes and fell in love with various instruments.
This fascination would allow Ra’Shain to pursue an online course where she would specialize in steelpan and percussions. Before we jump there, let’s talk about her music development through education.
Ra’Shain went through a typical Jamaican educational system, left primary school and went to the traditional Holy Childhood High School for Girls where her love for instruments grew passionately. Her high school choir entered “All Together Sing ” where she got the bug to perform on National TV.
She transitioned from High School to none other than Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts where she enhanced her abilities in Steelpan, Saxophone and Percussion. Being a loyal spirit she taught at her previous school and gave her time to the music department there. Her time spent at Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts were between 2017 and 2021 where she gained her Bachelor of Music Performance (Hons).
Through all the highs and lows of COVID, our new norm Ra’Shain has no intentions of slowing down or giving up. She listens to music and through meditation focuses on her musical desires.
With time also spent in Papine and now Red Hills, Ra’Shain speaks lovingly of the Sound System culture associated. A sound called Release Bomb keeps her house vibrating and she freestyles to the rhythms that flow. Performing for an audience would be a dream as she recollects watching stars perform at the annual Richie Spice concert.
Always an overachiever Ra’Shain is used to shooting for the stars. She’s experienced leadership roles as Deputy Head Girl, School Announcer, Steelband Instructor, Degree Holder, now Artist and Performer.
Keep an eye out for Ra’Shain! She’s a part of an amazing label, Imihj Media Productions which is owned and operated by a member of the world renowned dance group Black Bling.
