With an undeniable hybrid of genres comes a unique and boundary crossing album that bends the expectations of normality in the Christian Music arena. Raely Elle delivers her 10 track sophomore album "The Butterfly Stranger" through a pleasant blend of Reggae-Pop on distinctive Hip-Hop beats. Though her style blurs the lines of musical categories, her message and delivery are crystal clear. With songs of hope and healing, she narrates a story of alienation and encourages the listener to be true to their calling. Smooth, soulful, and rhythmic harmonies layer beautifully to create an experience worth revisiting.
The album was meticulously written, produced, mixed and mastered completely in-house by Raely Elle and her husband M.I.C., except for a few featured artists work (E-Sential, TRUe, & Benjah). This March 2019 release was her 4th overall project, succeeding her "Peacemaker" album and two mixtapes, spanning the last decade. A journey she began as a young lounge singer in the early years of the new millennium. She is currently working on her next project, a continuous cycle driven by her love of music, worship, and the opportunity to spread God's love and faith.
The tracks are glorious, all with an individual and personalised touch. The tracks are easy and a joy to listen to. To close your eyes and endulge in the melodies feels special and you feel grateful for the artist.
