Rafe is a Strong, soulful, sexy and spiritual singer and composer who uses organic and electronic elements to move his audience into transcendent experiences. With his high baritone voice, Rafe synthesizes diverse vocal influences ranging from American soul music, with its funky secular testifying, to Far Eastern devotional music. As a lyricist and composer, Rafe’s current projects explore themes of love, freedom, beauty, sexuality, transcendence, and transformation.
Rafe is currently writing, recording, & developing two personal projects. The first, Atlanteans, is a house-music-infused album focused for club and festival dance floors, where he takes ultimate freedom in vocal expression. A separate project that Rafe is developing, The Death and Resurrection Show, is an audio-visual spectacle for live venues that incorporates his multiple stage personas, expresses his personal experience of the mythological, shamanic and spiritual realms, and pays homage to his kinship with Rock-n-Roll-historical figures.
