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….

Featured Artist * NAM 

FancyJLondon ©2015 All Rights Reserved This is a bio feature representing artist and survivor Nam. This person chose to not reveal their identity for personal reasons.

  
 I go by the name of NAM, I am a 32 year old male who survived 20 years of abuse by an alcoholic, drug fiend family who physically and mentally assaulted me on daily basis for about two decades. 
One day I decided that I wanted a family. I married the wrong woman during college. She had planned to ride out my heart and my student loans, then leave me when college was finished. Yet, before receiving the divorce papers, she was already involved with another man. They pawned her $6000 ring, (I bought) for $175. bucks. 

After a hard lesson learned, I was left with forty-two dollars, my bicycle, and shell shocked. Going from abused, to a college/family man, to a graduate and then, to… divorced and homeless all in one felt swoop. 

  
Wandering, place to situations, blissful to nightmarish, real folks to sterile shelters, (if I got to them on time). I indulged the tempting, luscious, and the appalling this country offers for free, but before long I found myself a drug addict.
Ashamed, to be like my father, I panhandled, and in a couple of weeks afforded a hotel room, for only two days. Sobriety I did, Somehow, thankfully! Then found a job paying $7.59 an hour, still a job. One manager let me stay at his house until I got an apartment. I Lived there for three months, finally able to find my own place.

I paid him back in FULL plus some! What a Great Man!!!

Around 2 to 3 months after being hired, I was crossing the highway and, an SUV hit me … Going 50 m.p.h. (Yes, I had the right-a-way)! The driver was ticketed and I had a long harsh four years of standing back up. Physical therapy, pain clinics, needles, injections, and 5 surgeries within a year and a half of each other and 2 more recently, making it 7 in total only with more to come.

  
I live with chronic pain, (RSD) excessive damage in both my hips and shoulder. Lost my job, my health insurance, my home and, I’m permanently disabled. My blessings that come out of all my anguish and suffering are my loving fiancé and my wonderful, caring step-son, that has adopted me. They have stayed by my side through ALL! Two rarities arriving into my life during the struggles, surgeries, and the death of my abusive father.

I decided to pour all of my pain and suffering into something beautiful, ART! 

I create abstract colorful dark imagery with mystically alluring details. You can find my art on my website about.me/the_nam_nation for fair prices. 

Here are a few examples:

  
   
 

Feel free to follow me on twitter @the_nam_nation 

What I have acquired through all my devastating experiences has become priceless.

• Teaching me consistency and genuine unconditional love.

• Encouraging me to live life leaving all negativity in the past.

• Learning how to live in a normal environment.

• Proudly remaining drug free and humble through it all.

“I want to thank FancyJ London for featuring me she has really inspired me and I am grateful to have had a chance to know her. To my fiancé and step-son for all their love and support. To my friends, and all who have actively supported me on social media from around the world…I hope this inspires you.” -NAM

Featured Author “Hiraeth Phoenix”

 FancyJLondon ©2015 (All Rights Reserved) This Blog post is a Bio Feature representing: Hiraeth Phoenix Author, Writer and Poet.
Hiraeth (n.) – a homesickness, tinged with grief or sadness over the lost or departed. It is a mixture of longing, yearning, nostalgia, wistfulness, or an earnest desire for the past.

 Hiraeth writes about the longings of the heart. A sensitive, sensory soul, she has been writing as a coping mechanism since she was twelve. As a teenager her poetry won several awards and was published in anthologies.

 Often raw, straight-to-the-point, her writing is stripped down, bare and layered with emotion.

 Her debut novel, Hiraeth Phoenix, was published on Amazon in March 2015. It is the culmination of a year of writing and sharing on her blog and Facebook page. 

  
 

 Hiraeth Phoenix tells the story of a young couple’s relationship by exploring each person’s version of events. It begins with Phoenix, who is in shock and anger following Hiraeth’s sudden departure with no plausible explanation, apart from her realization that they are no longer growing together, expressed in her poetic style. At the end of the first half of the novel, the reader sympathises with him and finds it difficult not to judge Hiraeth for her seemingly selfish behaviour. However, in the second half Hiraeth has a chance to explain herself, to explore the cavities of her soul, her sensitivity. The novel takes the reader on a journey through the heartbreak of a break up, a divorce, the unexpected challenges, the loss that follows, but also the renewal and beauty of second chances. And at the end, it beckons, if you had that chance to see both sides of the story, would it change your behaviour, your ultimate choice?  

  Some reviews of the book are available on her website.
All characters in the novel are entirely imaginary and any resemblance to persons living or dead or actual events is purely coincidental.

 The novel is available on Amazon Kindle here:

http://www.amazon.com/Hiraeth-Phoenix-ebook/dp/B00UR5415S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1426584456&sr=8-1&keywords=hiraeth+phoenix

 

 Readers who are interested in reviewing the novel are welcome to contact Hiraeth directly for a complimentary copy.

 Hiraeth is passionate about women’s causes and the fight against ending violence against women and children. The theme of not loving another at the expense of oneself is a recurring one in her poetry. When she isn’t exploring fabric of her soul, Hiraeth likes surfing and gardening.

I will Sing

FancyJLondon ©2015 (All Rights Reserved)  

What are you going to do when the sun goes away

What are you going to do when the sky turns gray

What are you going to do when your not feeling so strong

What are you going to do when the conditions are wrong

SING even if your off key

Sing in the shower, sing at the beach

Sing to the moon and birds in the trees

Sing to the radio, pump up the beat

Sing in the rain, sing in the storm

Sing until you make the world fall to your feet

SING out loud with me

I learned today happiness is found in me…so I’m going to SING

When the rain falls down…I won’t hide in my house

When the day is hard and unbearable…I won’t cry

When the conditions are wrong for sure…I’ll make them right

When the crowd starts a brawl I will stand my ground…not fight

When I feel like nothing will change…I will switch up the game

When my whole world comes crashing down… I will SING

SING even if your off key

Sing in the shower, sing at the beach

Sing to the moon and birds in the trees

Sing to the radio, pump up the beat

Sing in the rain, sing in the storm

Sing until you make the world fall to your feet

SING out loud with me

What are you going to do when the sun goes away

What are you going to do when the sky turns gray

What are you going to do when your not feeling so strong

What are you going to do when the conditions are wrong

What do you say when those who love you, love you just today

What do you think of the friend who is only there when everything’s good

What do you feel when the person you love, loves you with conditions

What do you do to show them all you have won……
Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh……

SING baby, even if your off key

Sing in the shower, sing at the beach

Sing to the moon and birds in the trees

Sing to the radio, pump up that beat

Sing in the rain, sing in the storm

Sing until you make the world fall to your feet

Oooooh ooooooh ooooooooooh

Just SING out loud with me

I was OK, til I met You

Written By: FancyJ London ©2014 

Strong, independent, tough
Opinionated, self-reliant, rough
I wasn’t going to fall in love
No~~~~~~

Go where I please, drop to my knees
Get drunk, til I lose my keys
Laugh it up, breakdown
I never cared who was around

Get up late, dance all day
Runaway to another country
My life was an amusement park
Roaming free, in the dark
Missing, then come back
Party so hard, had a heart attack

I was OK, til I met you!
Why did you poison my heart
You broke me, walls just part
You were no good, from the start
But I fell so, Friggan HARD

Pass out in the car
Go on a plane, somewhere far
Sit at the beach, hear the waves
This is better, than being a slave

Street race, speeding up
Shopping, til I had enough
Flirting, dressing hot
Never wishing, just get what I want
Chose, to be alone
Was happiest, on my own
Then, you came along……

I was OK, til I met you!
Why did you poison my heart
You broke me, walls just part
You were no good from the start
But I fell so, Friggan HARD

Pills

20140822-012344.jpg

FancyJLondon ©2014

Suck it down, pass it on
This pain may never be gone
They ask you what is wrong
You respond with the same old song
I’m fine, nodding my head
Though I’m torn up into shreds
No one would wish to be in my bed

All I remembered now seems crazy
and has suddenly turned hazy
Reaching for the pills,
Running for the hills
Forget all the dues
and stop paying my bills
I’m jumping off the brink
heading down the sink
This isn’t at all
what you would think

Chasing me lately,
Ask what my fate be
Choosing carefully,
put me down hatefully
Picking up my pills now
ever so gracefully

It’s so deceptive
One moment from the next
Feeling like failing
without my happy fix
Up in the clouds
you can’t hurt me now

Cranking up the stereo
Laughing till my voice goes
Light up the candle
Set off the mantle
Blaze up the night
Pop my pills and start a fight
Pretty soon I’ll be on my flight
From there on after it’ll be alright
Keep popping em until there is no light

Murderer

Written By: FancyJ London ©2014 

It’s ok,
you can hurt me
Say anything you want
to break me

It’s ok,
Don’t pay no mind
to the tears you see
in my eyes,
there not real,
I’m not hurting,
know that must
be disturbing

When I cry
myself to sleep
don’t worry,
I am perfectly
happy…
Lies are things,
I use to help me
from feeling
crappy…

It’s ok,
you can hit with a punch
that will make my head split
and I can take it, cause… its ok!

You can pour salt
on my wounds,
make em burn
maybe one day I’ll learn,
not to play with the devils urn
You can drive me
into the ground,
when no ones around,
…be my murderer

Take a knife, slash me
It’s ok, I can take it
Stay out all night with friends
trash me, mutilate, …bash me
Drop some poison in my food,
it’s ok, I can take that too!
Put a pillow on my face
as I’m sleeping,
watch me slowly leave this place, weeping

You can pour salt on my wounds,
make em burn
Maybe one day I’ll learn
not to play with the devils urn
You can drive me
into the ground
when no ones around,
…be my murderer

There is only so much you take,
before you break, before you cry
Before you take, your very own life…

I can take it I’m strong inside,
but I’ll be even stronger in the next life…

You can pour salt on my wounds,
make em burn
Maybe one day I’ll learn
not to play with the devils urn
You can drive me
into the ground
when no ones around,
…be my murderer

Slice IT UP

20140812-100737.jpg

Written By: FancyJ London ©2014 
Grab it firmly, watch it pulse
Lean in for, an extra dose
Gushing red, running cold
Better do it quickly
Before it explodes

Slice it up
Dice it up
Stab it hard
Watch gush
Ok…now, that’s enough

God, it’s black
Feel the wrath
This to, shall pass
Running scared
From all you feared
You brought it out with a blade
now you must feel my rage

Your killing it, driving over
now you’ve shown
that your even colder
forever looking
over your shoulder
for what you’ve done
you shall always RUN

Slice it up
Dice it up
Stab it hard
Watch gush
Ok now, that’s enough
That’s enough, THAT’S ENOUGH…

Blame

FancyJLondon ©2014

B-eautiful beast full of lies, I fall every time

L-ove is non existent as a rose with its thorns, yet you still have your way with me

A-ll leads to heartbreak with this scar on my back I saw it coming, yet I ignored the fact

M-emories are all I hold inside knowing it was a total waste of my valuable time

E-ven as I lay here in the reality pain I hold only myself to blame

Lets Play

FancyJpoetry 

Written By: FancyJ London ©2014

You think you got me, with your stare
You think you know me, as if I care
You just want something, that’s how it is… I’m not your toy to be played with

You walk your walk, tall and boastful
You whistle, looking up and down
No respect will ever be found
You want to wreck my soul,
until I have nothing left
My innocence will be kept

I am not a foolish young thing,
that opens up for every man
You think I’m easy…your so wrong
I never fall for the sleazy

I rather stay single, than mingle
I know your type,
saying your different you’ll never play with me and all that hype
Declaring love for this one and that
When I see and I know,
that you are all bad
Come near me, I dare you
this time I hold the deck
you are about to get wrecked
Lets play cowboy,
what do you say?
Who crying now, who asking how
Who wants to end the game now
Sorry baby, I am 100 points ahead
Hope karma smacks the hell out of your BIG head.
