Raihanna Estrada
Raihanna Estrada
Raihanna Estrada is a country singer-songwriter who grew up in Lake Berryessa and Fremont, California. In 2009 she moved to Los Angeles to attend Musicians Institute. This move changed her life. It was there that Raihanna put her first band together and began co-writing and gigging around Los Angeles. Raihanna has played at venues such as The Wiltern Theater, Stagecoach Country Music Festival in Indio, Nevada Wildfest in Las Vegas and even traveled to England Fall of 2014 to play at YeeHaw UK Country Music Festival.

In October 2014 Estrada released her second EP “Take Me Back” that was produced by Douglas Charles Showalter. It is an acoustic EP featuring dobro/banjo/acoustic guitar/fiddle of all original songs penned by Raihanna. This release and her debut self titled EP Raihanna Estrada are both available on iTunes and Spotify. “Take Me Back” received many reviews worldwide and even landed her an international artists page on W21 Music: Home of UK Country Music.

Raihanna’s husband Eric is her guitarist and the two love being able to play, write, travel, perform and share the same passion for music. They currently live in Nashville where they are continuing their journey in music city writing new songs and playing shows. The two have plans to tour throughout the US as well as returning to the UK to tour in 2016.

“There are many factors that determine if an independent artist will make it over the threshold and begin their path to stardom, but the simple fact is that it all comes back to the songs. They need to be catchy, memorable, and something that we want to hear again and again. Those factors are exactly what Raihanna Estrada has accomplished with her brand new EP Take Me Back.” - One Stop Country, Nashville TN

“Raihanna has undoubtedly found her own voice and it shines on the EP, consistently graceful, occasionally mischievous and always engaging. Musically ‘Take Me Back’ has an appealing and rare sound, with its’ blend of Country, Bluegrass-lite and a subtle dash of Pop. Fingers crossed a full album is in the works so that we can all hear more from Raihanna Estrada.” New Country UK
Keyan Keihani
Keyan Keihani
Keyan Keihani is an alt-country singer-songwriter from San Francisco, CA. His debut, full-length album, "Eastbound," was produced by Michael Hurwitz (Stevie Nicks, Eddie Money) and reached #6 on the Americana charts on Amazon.com. "Eastbound" draws on the long-lost true country twang and emotion that is absent from the modern genre. The album was written with the intent of being an "album" in its true sense -- a common theme that flows seamlessly from one track to the next, telling a story. His lyrics, especially "Good Country Night", seems to draw influence from Dwight Yoakam's "Two Doors Down", but has a sound that can have parallels drawn to Ryan Adams and the Cardinals.

A definitive departure from Lightning, the harder-hitting, seven-song album is a perfect blend of Americana, Folk, and Alt. Country, and showcases growth in both skill and character in its narrative. Tamara’s message is clear – it’s okay to run. Don’t be surprised if you start wanting to run with her.
