First Listen: Sydney Raneé sings of loving "LA Boys"

(April 18, 2019) Sydney Raneé simply writes about everyday life, whether triumphant or troublesome.  Her musicality is informed by old and new school soul - from Stevie Wonder to Jill Scott.  While her voice resonates with a neo-soul taste, one of Raneé’s early highlights was working with the internationally known classical pop star Josh Grobin when she was in high school, which certainly added a spark in developing her career.  In recognition of this Los Angeles based singer/songwriter/producer’s artistry, our First Listen pages introduced ‘The Sultry Songstress’ in 2015 with the debut soul/pop ballad, “Born to Run,” that showcased her astounding voice skills.  And while perfecting her craft touring across the U.S., Italy and Singapore, Raneé found time to record two E.P,’s and several singles.

As we wait for the upcoming E.P. entitled Drop My Guard, Raneé returns to First Listen with a romantic tale centered on her hometown.  While her latest single “LA Boys” deals with the pain of rejection: "I can't let him hurt me again," the keys, guitar and drums provide a warm backdrop. And Raneé’s vocal confidence hits those high notes with ease on the chorus capped by those sassy, soulful punctuations and an appealing storyline.  With “LA Boys,”, we heartily welcome back Raneé to the latest First Listen spotlight.
