The Artists of Coruscate: Introducing…Raindrops and Zee!


Raindrops is an independent songwriter and vocalist. Her music encompasses the soulful passion of RnB, the smooth, relaxed melodies of reggae, in concert with the fast pace of electronica. She has long been interested in many different musical genres–from classical to hip hop. She counts among her influences:  Johann Sebastian Bach, Robert Schumann, Sam Cook, Our Lady Peace, Etana, India Arie , Jay Z and Notorious B.I.G.

She is fired up and ready to do her thing come Libido!



In her own words:zee.jpg

As an eight-year-old child, she learned hymns with her grandmother. By the age of twelve, she had directed a choir and rearranged hymns for children to perform. While attending Lee university, she auditioned for a chorale. As the alto sectional leader in a 40-member chorale, she was fortunate enough to travel across the U.S giving performances for sold out shows. As her exposure to different genres of music increased, her interest in rhythmic music blossomed anew. As a former student of the drums in high school, it was only natural that percussion based music would become her trademark.

As a vocalist and drummer, Zee has performed on many stages in her home country of the Bahamas–from small spoken word settings, to restaurants, hotels, fashion shows, and Jazz festivals. For Zee, a poetic melody that can entertain youth and middle-aged crowds simultaneously is the only successful performance there is.

In 2010, in order to grow her song writing repertoire and increase her fan base she recorded a song of the day on Facebook over a period of three months. During the last five years Zee has honed her talent as a producer. While Zee’s journey of musical evolution is never-ending, she’s happiest when she can marry her love of strong vocals and tribal drumbs to any genre in which she labours.
