Seattle’s Radio Raheem Band, with their stylized blend of soul, funk and rock dance music is one of the leading bands in the Northwest for great music, top-flight musicianship, and joyful and enthusiastic dancing.
Like the character, Radio Raheem, from Spike Lee’s iconic film, Do the Right Thing, the band has lots of opinions, a big speaker and are always the soul of the party.
Musically, the band represents the diversity of its six members, the genre-bending guitarist/founder/songwriter, Bryan Cohen, funky bass player & songwriter, Paul Christofferson, right-in-the-pocket drummer, Zia Uddin and triple threat, Trevor Rasmussen, on sax, keys, and occasional fiery rap vocals. Fronting the band is Northwest’s legendary powerhouse singer, Josephine “Josie” Howell, equally at home with gospel as she is with blues, soul, and jazz, along with the latest addition to the group, Josie’s daughter. Chyee, who has clearly inherited both her mother’s voice and her ability to connect with an audience.
Their latest single, Rules, the first song was written by the whole band, takes the band in a new, more focused direction. “We started poppy and we’ve evolved into a horn-driven retro-soul outfit,” Bryan Cohen says of their new sound. “The retro-soul really fits Josie’s voice.” The plan is to release a batch of singles over the next several months culminating in an EP of new material in early 2018.
