Look for more projects and releases on the horizon from this soul-stirring artist. “Raheem”
Born in Pensacola Florida and raised in Hobbs, New Mexico. Raheem is a multi-instrumentalist that plays Keyboard, bass, and electric guitar. Raheem's singing style is centered in “Heart & Soul” with a splash of down-home excellence. His expansive range can go from tenor to falsetto while keeping the integrity of the note. Raheem has a resonance similar to Curtis Mayfield, John Legend, Kem, and Howard Hewlett, who also motivates him tremendously.
Raheem was raised and inspired to sing by his grandparents Rev. Ervin and Lois Berry, who were both singers and musicians themselves. Some of Raheem’s influences through the years are James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Micheal Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and Andre Crouch, to name a few.
Although Raheem has captured the jazz public's attention as a vocalist, he continues to compose and write songs on guitar and piano. As a well-seasoned artist, Raheem has traveled extensively, sharing his work in sold-out venues, festivals and studios alike.
A few of his notable performances include The Grammy Awards after-party at the Omni Hotel, BB Kings Blues venue (Universal City Walk) Honoring Marla Gibbs at The Nate Holden Performing Arts Center, Halfway Back T.V Show, and The Bob Marley Celebration at Stardust Lounge.
Raheem Ross is a fierce mix between soul and jazz, his style complements any platform. His voice will remind you of nature, organically blissful sounds that reverberate with the listener’s ears and soul. You are truly in for a treat whenever this gifted musician and vocalist blesses your stage.
Some of Raheem’s work includes his 2011 breakthrough album “Curious” and his highly anticipated 2015 project “Lyrical Love”. Raheem is also a member of “The Still Waters Writers Collective,” a celebrated group of authors, songwriters, poets and screenwriters.
