In 2010, the Raineys started their musical journey with James Rainey, Laura Rainey, Randy Shafer, and on special occasions Pastor Rick Towe on bass. They recorded their first CD at Swan Creek Valley Studios, which was a Christmas project. Shortly after that, dates started pouring in to go all across the country.
In 2012, James and Laura were called to ministry in Southern Illinois. God, being the provider that He is, sent them a third voice, Deb Gates-Griffin. The Raineys then continued to travel and record for several years. Soon after the marriage of Deb and Scott Griffin, the Raineys were once again looking for another vocalist. Little did they know God had both of them picked out. Bass vocalist Gary Voelker and lead vocalist Paul Davis have now become an integral part of the ministry team. The Raineys have not only gained a rich, full sound, but they gained a new anointing. Davis is not only a singer, but an anointed preacher and evangelist.
They will be introducing their newest C.D. “In His Presence.”
