A performance-artist who challenges masculine and feminine body language by exploring non-gender specific expression.

Jurni RayneJurni Rayne

Jurni Rayne is not your average vocalist/artist. This Dallas, Texas, native has a great sound and unique flair. Do not judge a book by its cover because this anomaly of a diva will have you melting over the sultry sounds of her voice and the depth of her lyrics. Jurni Rayne is well versed in guitar, piano and flute; however, it is the voice that pulls everything together. While music is important to Jurni Rayne, it is equally important for her to be an OUT lesbian artist. Jurni feels that your race, socioeconomic background, “hood” or sexual preference does not define the person or the talent. jurnirayne.com.
