Shaynee Rainbolt

Jazz Times Magazine describes Shaynee Rainbolt as "...Sweet as jasmine & honeysuckle, bold as brass and yet as seductive as a candlelit boudoir." New Yorkers agree. A regular on the NYC music scene since she relocated from the San Francisco Bay Area, the Siegle’s of Theatermania.com declared: “San Francisco’s loss is New York’s gain. The arrival here Shaynee Rainbolt is cause for celebration.” A unique and gifted storyteller with a sumptuous tone and instrumentally oriented jazz chops, she is an entertainer singing music from all eras. She swings, scats, croons and connects with every word. A Bistro Award and two-time MAC (Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs) Award winner, she is also a four-time MAC Award Nominee and seasoned recording artist with three critically acclaimed CD’s to her credit. The first two released on the UK Indie jazz label, 33Jazz (33jazz.com). Shaynee has performed at world-class venues in the U.S. & abroad.
