This feature bio represents the recording artist, singer-songwriter, Rayne Michael.

  

                       🎶 It’s Rayning Michael…. Hallelujah!!! 🎶 

 This is what comes to my mind when I hear his name. I literally fell on Rayne Michael’s music one day, as I was sifting through some new music. I quickly became intrigued with his sensually soft almost angelic tone, incredible emotionally driven lyrics, and his powerfully surprising range! 

 The first song I heard Rayne Feature on was Titled STAR, by the utterly talented DJ Ross Tha Boss ( https://fancysfullspectrum.wordpress.com/2015/11/08/featured-artist-dj-ross-tha-boss/

  
 

 I absolutely had to feature Rayne Michael! I got a hold of him on twitter, where I quickly learned he was just a day away from auditioning for The Voice. At that moment I knew that Rayne Michael was well on his was to stardom, and we were on our way to a great friendship. I present to you the one and only Rayne Michael…. 

 Soulful singer Rayne Michael grew up listening to the music his parents listened to, first forming an interest through the sounds of Country & 80’s music played around the house. Soon finding an even greater pull towards the rhythms and grooves of Top 40, R&B, Pop, Rock & Soul genres, Rayne began to discover his own talents and establish a vibrant, permanent connection to music as he started to use his own voice. 

  

 After first approaching his new-found talents with trepidation – it would be his sister, Charity that would help him make that final breakthrough he was looking for. Encouraging him to truly embrace his voice and sing with full confidence and volume, Rayne Michael began to take hold of his vocal talent, his ability to connect with people emotionally through the music and genuine passion for singing. Rayne Michael started to pursue his dreams with everything he had.

  
 

 His strong desire to entertain, sing and perform has led him to an inspiring, unique sound that brings a comforting and cohesive blend to his music. Continually challenging himself creatively, Rayne blends sounds of R&B with rock/pop edginess, keeping the music fresh, soulful, smooth and exciting through his vocals. Writing songs that come from within his soul, revealing the depth of his heart. Rayne is an endearing musician who authentically expresses himself in inspiring tones and creative music that leaves a beautifully memorable impact. 

  
Rayne wanted to send out a special message to his fans, here it is. 

 Big Shout out to all my amazing supporters in my Rayne Michael Fam! Without any of you I wouldn’t be able to do what I love! I can’t go much further without giving a special thanks to Topher Williams of Topher Williams Studios….

 ( https://www.facebook.com/topherwilliamsstudios

….for helping make my dream a reality. I also need to thank my producer and mixer Jack MacArthur of JM Audio Production. He dedicated so much time and energy. I have big gratitude for both of these pros. 

Also can’t forget all those who have stuck with me believing in my talent from the very beginning. Last but not least I want to Thank DJ ross tha Boss for the amazing Mix Stars, FancyJ London for this incredible Feature as well as FSM magazine.

Featured Artist *Maciej Smoreda*

FancyJLondon ©2015 All Rights Reserved This blog post is a bio feature representing rapper, singer/songwriter Maciej Smoreda 
  
FancyJ: “Hello Maciej; could you first before anything else tell me how to pronounce your name?” 

Maciej: “Sure, my name is pronounced Ma-Che. It means gift from God. 

FancyJ: “Your name is quite unique, what nationality did your name originate from?” 

Maciej: “I was born in lodz, Poland, it is a Polish name.” 

FancyJ: “That is impressive you are not American, yet your English is good?”

Maciej: “At the young age of 13, I moved from Poland to upper state NewYork not knowing any English at all, though I am proud to say I was able to pick it up quickly.”

FancyJ: “I must say I am not only intrigued by your name and your heritage, but also the video I saw of you hitting hard subjects like 9/11 with inspiring messages. Could you tell me what or whom inspired you to rap about such hard subjects, like 9/11.”

Maciej: “The 9/11 poem I wrote shortly after it happened. I was attending high school in NewYork. It was the first artistic positive message I ever wrote, at that time my hiphop was much different, mainly focusing on freestyle battling and murder rap in those days. Actually it became a huge turning point for me because I realized I could inspire people with my music.

  
FancyJ: “Did anyone close to you inspire you to get into music?”

Maciej: “Yes, in fact I owe it to a close friend of mine Michael Williams who does not rap, but writes poetry, I heard his 9/11 poem and was inspired to write my own version with my views. To this day I like his poem far more, and he likes mine far better…LOl! Since then he became a firefighter as well as partaking in multiple trips to Iraq and Afghanistan. I admire and respect him greatly. 

FancyJ: “Wow, he sounds like an amazing person, you know what they say here in our country; “You are the company you keep.” You know how to pick friends, that is a great quality to have.” Ok, If you could pick a famous artist you have great respect for, who would it be and why? 

Maciej: “Thank you for your compliments, as far as your question, It is hard to pick just one. I have always been a huge fan of Tupac and all the revolutionary talk at the end of his career same goes for Michael Jackson. That was an idol of mine since I was 5 years old. More recent artists that I have huge respect for are Hopsin, Logic, and McLemore. All very smart individuals, Independent thinkers and just aurora filled exuberant people. I can’t forget to mention Jim Morrison, that man was so ahead of his time he basically predicted “EDM” music in the 60’s, Hats off to Jim!”

FancyJ: “You really know your music, I agree those are some unforgettable people that taught us so much. So, tell me how did you choose your style of music? 

Maciej: “Guess it chose me when I was watching power rangers, Lol!” I love most music, though I can not sing to save my life or play any instruments, but I enjoy writing and expressing my thoughts in a way that makes people think more and hip hop was the perfect way for me to be able to do that.” 

  
FancyJ: “I have to say the Power Rangers comment took me by surprise? What did you mean by that?” ( For those of you reading who have no clue as to what we are talking about here is a link to explain: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_Rangers )

Maciej: “Lol, I fell in love with hip hop at the age of 7 by watching The Power Rangers Show. The Black Power Ranger “STATIC” often broke out breakdancing, I thought to myself now that is hip hop!”

FancyJ: “So, at what age did you think you become enamored with music?”

Maciej: “I would say I have been interested in music, since I was a baby. Both my grandmothers sang in church choirs and in opera. I was quite fascinated with the passion in there voice and the feedback they would receive.

FancyJ: “It is amazing how influential music can be for all ages. Have you ever taken up lessons for an instrument?”

Maciej: “Yes, music is powerful. I actually took a lesson for one day on guitar and gave up. Tried again years later and only learned the basics of smoke on the water.” 

FancyJ: “I think we all fall victim to that, I too took classes on clarinet in school…hated it! 

Maciej: “Lol!”

FancyJ: “Can you tell me what you hope to accomplish by spreading your message filled lyrics? Do you believe that music has the power to change the way people think or feel in a positive way?” 

Maciej: “I just want to inspire people. It blows my mind that I already have inspired people in places I never been and around the world. It blows my mind.”I believe music is one of the most influential forms of art, ever. No matter what mood you are in, hearing a song with lyrics full of imagery and emotion can put you in whatever place the artists mind was in when they were writing it. It is the best form of story telling in my personal opinion. If you’re having a bad day and you put on a record like Tupac’s, it changes you automatically you instantly feel the positive vibration through your body, making you desire accomplishing something great.”

FancyJ: “I have to say I couldn’t agree more. I am sure we all have that specific singer or special album we enjoy, that pumps us up or motivates us.” 

  
Maciej: “I am happy you agree, yes it would be a dull world without music.” 

FancyJ: “Speaking of that, your lyrics are not even close to dull! Where do you draw your inspirational lyrics from?”

Maciej: “I draw my lyrics from personal experiences, as well as those close to me. One example is a song I created with Supa Russ, titled: ANSWERS. This song was one of the toughest and most emotional songs I have ever done, being that it was dedicated to our best friend that unexpectedly passed away earlier this year due to a heart attack at the young age of 26. Other songs I have written to show my point of view of world influences for myself and others that are relatable. Like the song titled: NICOTINE. I’ve been battling with nicotine addiction for over ten years, so that became my positive outlet in a negative struggle.”

FancyJ: “That is very inspiring for so many who have lost loved one’s and for those who battle addictions of all types.” I think your outlet is commendable!” 

Maciej: “I have been lucky in terrible situations, so for me this goes a lot deeper.”

FancyJ: “Yes indeed you have from what you told me privately, care to share any of them?” 

Maciej: “I was kicked out of high school, got in trouble, hustled a bit decided to put music on hold for while, then worked many different jobs from Walmart, Holister to running my own tree removal business. Finally up and moved to Florida in late 2011, I decided to buy an old graffiti’d school bus to move my things. My good friend and I drove it down with all my belongings and my pet snakes. The very first month in Florida, I was hit by a car going 65 mph. To my shock I didn’t have one broken bone and I was released from the hospital the next morning! I then moved my beautiful fiancé from NewYork to join me. I started to get serious about hip hop late last year when I had the pleasure of meeting BZK JOE (my producer/ also the top holding 3rd place breakdancer of Florida) we formed Affiliate’s and started making music!”

  
FancyJ: “You have quite an amazing story, and I am almost positive that people can relate to you. We all have a story and I am happy to share those stories with my readers. Who would you like to thank out there, for where you are today?”

Maciej: “I would like to thank my family, friends and my fiancé. Most of all my partner/producer BZK Joe who is my other half of affiliates. He pushes me all the time, couldn’t do it without him. Also, my fans from all over the world and people such as yourself FancyJ London for taking interest in my work.

FancyJ: “Thank you Maciej, it has been a pleasure getting to know you, but not wanting to get to know those snakes!” Lol!” So tell me, If you became the next rap icon, what would you do with your fame?”

Maciej: “I take it you are not a snake fan, Lol!” Well, If I became a rap icon I would build some community studios for kids to be able to make music where the resources are not available. If we can influence the youth in a positive way we can alter the future.” 

FancyJ: “That sounds great, you should start a campaign on Kickstarter for that! I guarantee you would reach the masses. Ok, last question, what do you think are your music life goals?” 

Maciej: “Music life goal is to make people think more. Respond not react. I think my lyrics convey that message. I want to show that anything is possible, if I couldn’t speak English at 13 years old then I can come up with complex lyrics, anyone can do it!” 

  FancyJ: “You are right about that, you can do just about anything if you put your mind, heart, and soul into it! 

 I am going to leave you with the video that inspired me to feature Maciej and want to say that my featured artists are all talented, but each have an incredible story. Everyone should be valued and appreciated from all four corners of the earth whether your famous or not! ~FancyJ London

Featured Artist~ JANANI

 FancyJLondon ©2015 All Rights Reserved
This blog post is a bio feature representing the Alternative Rock Band JANANI  
 JANANI is an alternative rock band from Orlando, Florida. The band was formed by Janani Vaidyanathan and Erick Campos in January of 2011. In early 2014, JANANI released their very first extended play titled, Three Step System EP. The Three Step System EP was produced by Brett Hestla, former member of Creed. 

  
  The EP spawned moderate success for the band, most notably with their hit single, “Where Was I?”. Kat Coffin of Examiner.com wrote, “Songs don’t get much catchier than ‘Where Was I.’ JANANI’s spunky vocals are full of attitude as they cascade over a steady walking blues rhythm…” and “[Janani’s] strong voice takes lyrical delivery beyond heartfelt to a more character driven place conveying toughness, anger, bitterness, passion and a host of other feelings…”. 

  JANANI released their hit single, Run (Pick Up The Gun), in May of 2015. Shortly after it’s release, the single won the Akademia Award for Best Alternative Rock song. ExposedVocals.com wrote, “[Run (Pick Up The Gun)’s] killer chorus latches itself in your memory after the first listen. It’s a well-crafted song that acts as a wonderful homage to the classic rock sound but also just a good piece of songwriting in itself.” 

  
Their music has been heard on radio stations such as CKCU 93.1 FM in Ottawa, Canada, KISS 104.7 FM and Orlando’s own XL 106.7 FM. It has also been featured in DIRECTTV’s documentary, Gone Until December. JANANI’s latest single, Run (Pick Up The Gun), will be the theme song of the upcoming television series, Hit Women.

     

  From over two-hundred competing bands, JANANI was selected to compete in the top 8 for the Hard Rock Rising Orlando competition, where they performed in front of a panel of judges including Chris Kirkpatrick of NSYNC. Of over 70 acts in the Tampa Bay Acoustic Music Festival at the Hard Rock Cafe Tampa, JANANI walked away as one of five bands selected to be a Hard Rock Energy Ambassador.

  
  JANANI is currently number 1 on ReverbNation Alternative Orlando charts and collectively has over 36,000 fans spanning over 5 different social networks.

  
SHOUTOUT Straight from JANANI ~ Sending big love ❤️ to our Manager Ranelle Golden, all our fans, and of course FancyJ London, YOU ROCK!
Thank you, JANANI …..OH, by the way I am a major fan myself! ~FancyJ
