Singer/Songwriter Raine and Producer/Songwriter Breo have joined forces to create a dance-pop/electronic CD titled ‘Dance With Me’. Born in Lytham, St. Anne’s England and raised in Ontario, Canada, Raine wrote and recorded this CD between 2007 and 2008 via the internet with Breo, who lives in the U.K. After meeting on the social networking website myspace, the two decided to collaborate on the ‘Dance With Me’ CD. Breo wrote the music and produced the album, while Raine wrote the lyrics and melodies. Thousands of miles apart, and never having met face to face, they were able to create a collection of songs that have emotive lyrics and strong melody lines set against a backdrop of addictive beats and captivating electronic synth sounds. The title track ‘Dance With Me’ has a contagious rhythm that beckons the listener to hit the dance floor. Track One‘Cry’immediately engages the listener with Raine’s haunting vocals at the beginning of the track. Dance With Me is an ideal CD for listening to while working out at the gym, driving in your car, or dancing at your local hot spot.
