Shaynee Rainbolt
 
  Equally at home singing jazz standards or Broadway tunes, 33 Jazz Records recording artist, SHAYNEE RAINBOLT sparkles on every stage. Her sound and approach place her somewhere in the intriguing area between jazz and that realm of pop music that draws its material from the Great American Songbook.

Following the release of her critically-acclaimed debut FROM THIS MOMEMT ON, Shaynee steps out on the next leg of her musical journey with AT HOME. A gifted storyteller with a voice and personality that make people want to listen, she takes the audience on a guided tour of songs written by Harry Warren/Al Dubin, Stephen Sondheim, Dave & Samantha Frishberg, Legrand & The Bergmans, Rodgers & Hart, Livingston & Evans and other renowned wordsmiths. On 12 tunes that make her feel and sound right at home, Shaynee swings, scats, croons and connects with every word. From “I Only Have Eyes for You” to “The Girls of Summer,” “I Can’t Make You Love Me, “Mink Schmink,” “Blizzard of Lies” and “Easy to Remember,” her CD and stage performances draw listeners into a warm and comfortable place.

“When I first visited New York City, I felt as if I had found my home,” Shaynee says. “The energy, the people, the art; everything about it resonated with me. I wanted to live there; and just over a year ago, that dream became a reality.”

Today, she’s knee-deep in the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple. She has performed at Iridium, The Encore, Helen’s, Danny’s Skylight Room and every Thursday night, the Shaynee Rainbolt Trio takes its spot at Charley O’s in the heart of the theater district. Before changing coasts, she was a staple on the San Francisco Bay Area music scene, working at The Empire Plush Room, Jazz at Pearl’s, The Purple Onion, The Cosmopolitan and Club Jazz Nouveau. She also has taken the stage in Los Angeles, New Orleans, London and other cities around the globe.

Shaynee tapped into the vast array of stellar New York musicians to round out her sophomore release. With Lee Musiker (Tony Bennett’s Music Director) on piano, the rest came easily. Produced by Judy Barnett and Scott Noll, AT HOME also features Ray Marchica, drums; Tom Hubbard, bass; Cliff Lyons, sax; and Bud Burridge, trumpet, Marshal Rosenberg, percussion, with guest appearances by guitarist Gene Bertoncini and flutist Dan Willis.
