Raimee is a Melodic Hard Rock/Metal band from Greensboro, NC. They have been honored to share the stage with such national acts as Saving Abel, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, A Skylit Drive, New Years Day, Eyes Set to Kill, Get Scared, Your Chance to Die, and Lacey Sturm of Flyleaf.
Established in 2011 by singer/pianist Rei Haycraft and guitarist Brandon Mullin, Raimee wowed the Boone, North Carolina music scene with powerful, emotionally driven melodic hard rock. Rei was soon joined in the studio and on stage by guitarist Kristy Streyle, bassist Thomas Thornsberry, and drummer Ryan Morris. Together they have developed a unique sound and energetic stage presence unlike any other by pairing soul-baring, introspective lyrics and soaring vocals with dynamic instrumentation.
Shortly after their inception, Raimee released a compilation EP with another band entitled, “Of Roses and Ravens,” which featured five songs written and recorded by the band. Raimee toured Western North Carolina, building a solid fanbase of individuals who responded to the band’s honest, heart-wrenching music, unstoppable stage energy, and unbelievable drive to make their dreams a reality. The band moved their base of operations to Greensboro, North Carolina and worked harder than ever to write, record, and produce their first full-length solo album, “After All This Time,” which was released worldwide in July of 2015. Currently, Raimee is writing and recording new material while continuing to tour the region, entertaining audiences with their energetic stage show and reaching others with their music, one person at a time.
