A performer with a low-stakes, kind, and engaging stage presence, Racyne makes room for story-telling, original songs, sing-alongs, and making friends throughout her live sets, gigs, and shows. She's grateful for any chance she gets to perform and is happy to have you along for the ride!
Originally from Southern Oregon, Denver based singer-songwriter Racyne Parker draws inspiration from country, modern folk, indie rock, and pop influences, to deliver catchy lyrics, warm vocals, and a contemporary style that fits in well on playlists next to Kacey Musgraves, Taylor Swift,and Miranda Lambert.
Racyne is bound to play a song that you know while also introducing new songs to you that you're sure to love. Her original tunes, while personal to her, often present themes that you'll be familiar with too.
Her songs draw on her experiences with living in and leaving a small town, navigating uncertainty in love and life in her 20s, and finding joy in the little moments.
Born and raised in Klamath Falls, OR it wasn’t until March of 2020 that Racyne moved to her current home-base of Denver, CO. Over the last several years, Racyne has played a whole lot of local shows, worked on her songwriting and recording, and reflecting on what it has meant to grow up in a rural community and, maybe more significantly, to leave home.
Racyne grew up riding horses, moving cows, playing sports, and occasionally singing with her dad’s local country-rock band, Raymond Parker and The Lost River Band – all the while dreaming of becoming an artist in her own right.
As she got older, Racyne shifted her focus almost entirely to academics and playing for her high school sports teams, then going on to pursue athletics in college, leaving music behind. In college, Racyne made plans to attend medical school after graduation. Despite graduating with a degree in biology and anthropology, Racyne couldn’t shake the pull of the childhood dream of becoming an artist behind. In fact, one of the songs she had written in college would go on to become her debut single.
Her first single, "I'm a Mess" was released in January of 2019, followed by a sophomore single in June 2019. Recorded at SoundSmith Studios (Bend ,OR), her debut EP, "Tumbleweed Town," was released in August 2019.
In the fall of 2020, Racyne released two singles, "Hindsight" and "Fall Too Easy" as solo projects. She followed those releases up with "I'll Keep You" in January of 2021.
During the summer of 2020, Racyne came together with Jordan Renn and Nick Wood to create a project titled “Feel It Now,” a three-song EP with indie-rock and alternative influences. The EP was released on March 31st, 2022, under the artist name Racyne Parker & The Low Coals.
Later that year, Racyne released the single "Here in the Middle," produced by Randall Kent (Nashville, TN), on September 29, 2022, then followed it up with a short PNW fall tour. This song would be the first of many to be produced by Randall Kent.
In 2023, "Make It Out Alive" was released as a single and landed Racyne a spot as a Top 10 Finalist in the 93.3 KTCL "Hometown for the Holidays" song contest.
To kick off 2024, Racyne announced the release of another upcoming single, “Willow Tree,” which will be available on all listening platforms on January 18, 2024.
