“Self titled debut EP, truly a thing of beauty. Jam packed with atmosphere, imagery, a real soundtrack vibe. All backed up her haunting vocals and strong songwriting..a real lasting impression..a far cry from your typical understanding of a singer songwriter…on another level…Wake Up is a world class song.”  Gillian McGee, Musician.ie

The four tracks from the self-titled debut EP Raine journey through the songwriter’s life as an artist, as well as exploring themes of sensuality, tragedy and loss. “Wake Up” follows the aftermath after a personal friend fell into a coma and Raine’s attempt to process this. The ethereal “Breathe Me In” is a tale of falling in lust while “Honey Babe” breaks free from a toxic relationship while rediscovering her inner strength. Closing out The xx and London Grammar inspired Extended Play is “Burnt”, a track that is unapologetically gritty and sexual. This debut EP was recorded, produced and mixed at Monique studio with Christian Best and mastered by Ruairi O’Flaherty.

The special show launching Raine also premiered a first look at a video project to accompany the single “Breathe Me In”. The video is a collaboration between Lorraine’s vision of the single and the cinematic eye of the Cork Film Centre. The video was projected in the grand hall of the Aula Maxima on the evening of the EP Launch.


“Standout track ‘Breathe Me’ .. both subtle and larger-than-life, pulsating with a London Grammar-esque beauty…… Confident, accomplished clearly not afraid to bare her soul.” Ryan O’Neill, Unity Media Network.

“The music is fully formed with a sure idea to what it’s about…Remarkable…” Don O’Mahony, Evening Echo.
