Vocal Passion - Gigs, Recordings, Press Kits etc...


Hello and Welcome to my website! So glad you’ve dropped by!Italy_promo

In the pages of this site you’ll find information about my work as a singer/songwriter/storyteller/and performer.

If you click on the “Finding Your Voice” Link at the bottom of the panel on the left you can find out about my work as a singing teacher, workshop facilitator, and community choir conductor.

The Events Calendar gives information about any upcoming events, both performative and teaching.

In my Blogg “Raelene’s Musings” I contemplate a range of issues relating to singing, voice and performance.

It is a site under continual construction as I update and include new things. Stay tuned for some soon to come new pages about shows, recordings and some up to date promo pics. There may even be some courses and retreats in the pipeline! Feel free to contact me if I seem to have dropped the site management ball and you need some up to date information. I am my own admin person, as well as songwriter, researcher, performer and teacher… Sometimes some bits of the picture get more attention than others.

Four years ago I moved to Perth to do my PhD. I have now submitted it, but have no intention of leaving any time soon. I love Perth! I love the weather, the beaches, and the wonderful creative communities, particularly musical ones, which have embraced and welcomed me. I also love my students. They teach me so much! And there is no greater thrill than watching someone else realise that they really CAN learn to drive their voices.

Perth also has some great music festivals, I still have a few to experience, but Fairbridge and Nanga have to be amongst my favourites in the country. I also love the storytelling scene here: the monthly “Barefaced Stories” at The Bird in Northbridge are a joy.

Now that I have finished my PhD (well, depending on the responses of the examiners) I must look to the future. There are CDs to be made, music tours of WA to plan, pieces of PhD performance to rewrite for festival formats (I did research some very very very old stories), vocal nosh events to be planned. For now at least (and for the foreseeable future) that will happen from Perth. I’m open to travelling to other places, however!

See you round the traps, and don’t forget to get in touch if you would like to book me as a performer, vocal specialist or workshop facilitator; go on my email list; or have some other great musical idea you’d like to explore with me.
