Seattle’s Radio Raheem formed in 2011. Blending R&B. soul, and hip-hop the band was formed by bass player Paul Chistofferson and guitar player Bryan Cohen. Both seasoned Seattle music scene vets they were soon joined by former Mayfield Four drummer Zia Uddin, saxophonist/keyboardist Trevor Rasmussen, and the sensational vocalist Josephine (Josie) Howell. An early collaboration with Shock G of Digital Underground on the song “Push The Party” helped get the band some national attention and they recently released Raheem Rising, a seven song collection of body moving jams that you’ll love if you’re a fan of soul, particularly the music of Fitz and The Tantrums, Mayer Hawthorne, and Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings.
