Jimmie Reign Gets Ready to Rule

What's up with the Bay Area's indie R&B scene? First Ledisi. Then Goapele, followed by Netta Brielle. And last, but (certainly) not least, Ms. Jimmie Reign.

Reign has the goods to go far in the industry–she projects a sex-on-a-stick image and apparently has a distate for wearing too many clothes. How can she lose with the stuff she use? -it's a winning hand, as Lionel Richie might say. But if you can get past her physical appearance (ahem), she's also got the talent–and the music–to back it up.

Reign, who was recently featured in the October issue of NYC's “Urban Ink” magazine, has been not-so-quietly amassing a wealth of hot material. Her recent hits “Best I Ever Had” and “Can't Go” clocked a lot of commercial radio spins, and she has two current tunes which appear primed to do the same: “Different Person” and “Make You Wait.” Reign has also been playing a lot of shows: her next scheduled appearance is Oct. 2nd at Oakland's Arsimona, and Oct. 17, she hosts the Black Tie Affair at SF's W Hotel. More info–show dates, videos, songs–can be found here and a video of “Different Person”(shot at Oakland's Air Lounge) is here .
