South Dakota Singer Trying to Break Through [AUDIO]
If you’ve been watching ‘The Voice’ on NBC, you know just how good the level of talent is. You know the caliber of young people that want to make the music their career. It’s tough. For the past few days we’ve been keeping an eye on South Dakota native Rehme Sutton.
Part of Rehme’s (pronounced Ray’ me) plan is to give country music a go. With a name like Sutton you can well imagine that Rehme grew up in a family that knows the meaning of ‘wild and western.’ In fact one of the songs on her debut album, ‘Billies Song’ a tune she penned for her brother Billie who suffered a near catastrophic bronc riding accident.
Over the years we’ve also figured out two things. If a country music artist can write a song about ‘something real, that people can feel and perform it like they’ve lived it,’ then they have a shot.
Rehme’s music certainly has a ‘South Dakota Prairie’ feel. We’re anxious to see how far she can go. Here’s a sample of her music,
