Naomi Raine is gearing up for release of non-worship solo album

Maverick City worship leader, Naomi Raine is preparing her new solo album release titled “Journey” and encourages her listeners and people to know that her songs go beyond those they are familiar with.
Raine released her first single “Not Ready” last week and it was a long time coming for the native of Queens, New York, who’s been writing her own songs since she was a child. She was the daughter of two worship leaders, Raine recalled the moment she dedicated her life to Jesus.
“I just pretty much grew up in rehearsal and in church for my whole life, groomed in music, groomed to go after the presence of the Lord,” she said in an interview with The Christian Post. “When I was 11, I got filled with the Holy Spirit and that started my relationship with the Lord, just a time of devotion.”
Before lending her signature vocals to Maverick City Music’s No. 1 singles “Jireh” and “Promises,” as a young girl she’d sit in her closet “praying in the Spirit, listening to music and singing to God.”
“I spent probably four or five years doing that. As I got older, I became interested in boys and got a little distracted,” Raine revealed.
Raine who discovered Jesus through that season revealed she found out about the grace of God and the gospel which is what thickened the call upon her life.
Raines’ new album Journey isn’t considered worship music that will be sung by congregations on Sunday mornings. However, the message is from a Christian woman and her relationship with Jesus. In the songs, she touches on mental illness but says the album is not solely about that.
