Rayne Johnson Debuts With Self-Titled EP Out Today

Rayne Johnson releases his debut, self-titled EP today via Mountain Road Records/VERGE. The nine-track project features Rayne’s current single, “Real Dang Good” which is currently making its way up the charts.

Between working a full-time job on the railroad and creating music, the Fairfield, Ohio, native has put in overtime to introduce fans to his first full-length project. He amplifies traditional country tales through soulful vocals bolstered by rock energy and a twist of R&B flavor, and his music has already generated over 43 million streams independently.

“I have always been fan of multi-genre music,” said Johnson. “I grew up listening to country radio above all else, but also really loved Boyz II Men. For me, it was all about the storytelling. My personal brand of country is upbeat and combines different sounds that have influenced me over my lifetime.”

The new EP features lead single “Front Seat,” written by Rhode Island singer/songwriter Joe Jordan, which propelled Rayne into the Top 40 on the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase Country Aircheck charts earlier this year as an independent artist before he signed with Mountain Road Records/VERGE. Rayne himself contributed to the writing process on “Bring it Back” with frequent collaborator Jordan and Nashville songwriter Walt Aldridge.
