ABOUT INDIA

Multi-instrumentalist | Session Musician | Mentor

"With the swagger of Joan Jett, bass chops of Suzi Quatro, and the no-bullshit attitude of Sarah McLeod, India Raine embodies the feminine rock’n’roll spirit of decades past." -
Reyco Records

Meet India Raine, the multi-instrumentalist taking the Aussie music scene by storm! Hailing from the UK and raised under the Australian sun, India’s journey began at the tender age of 5 when she declared that she wanted to be a rockstar. Fast forward to today, and she’s living that dream.

India Raine’s musical journey led her to attend and graduate from Music Industry College (MIC) in Queensland, Australia, where she completed a Diploma of Music Industry. She has since conquered stages both nationally and internationally, establishing herself as a reliable fixture in the Australian music industry.

As an internationally touring multi-instrumentalist, India commands the stage with her mastery of bass and guitar, and occasionally, you’ll find her perched behind the drum kit.

India is a full-time member and bass player in the band of country music luminary Josh Setterfield. Her pulsating rhythms and captivating bass groves provide the backbone of Josh’s electrifying performances, earning her a well-deserved place in the spotlight.

India is also a founding member, bass player, and co-producer of Aussie rockers Reckless Coast, where she is at the forefront of the rock resurgence movement.

Sharing the stage with iconic bands like The Wolfe Brothers, Casey Barnes, and The Southern River Band, India electrifies the scene with her talent.

India’s expertise as a session musician has seen her collaborate with a diverse range of artists, including renowned rocker Reece Mastin. Her versatility and mastery of many musical genres and natural talent for production make her an invaluable asset to every project she touches.

From graduating from Music Industry College to conquering international stages, India Raine is not just a musician; she’s a force to be reckoned with.

"As a woman in the industry, India has provided invaluable advice and support for the young women she works with at MIC."

"I have worked closely with India for the past two years in her role as CEO of Starving Kids. India works with the students at Music Industry College (MIC) to assist them in their pursuit of careers in the music industry. As an emerging musician herself and graduate of MIC, India has a unique insight into the lives of our students as well as the current workings of an ever-changing industry. She is passionate, bright, knowledgeable and experienced in a range of areas within the industry, and this has allowed her to bring the best out of the young people she works with. As a woman in the industry, India has provided invaluable advice and support for the young women she works with at MIC. I give my full endorsement to India's nomination for the Australian Women in Music Awards."

Brett Wood Principle, Music Industry College (MIC)

"We have seen India inspire many of our young participants in being a great model in the music industry."

"India has been an amazing energy to have with Imagine Music. She brings her extensive professional experience and wisdom as a musician into the workshops along with her empathy and genuine compassion. She has an ability to connect to others in a passionate and easy-going manner whilst being a hardworking and committed person. We have seen India inspire many of our young participants in being a great model in the music industry. Along with this I have personally seen the benefits of India’s work to the greater community and music scene of Brisbane, in mentoring, guiding and inspiring up and coming young people."

Aaron Shanahan, Founder/CEO, Imagine Music

"I am so grateful to have India's guidance in my career.”

“Moving from the well supported environment of Music Industry College to working independently as a musician at 17, while an exciting time, also has had its moments of feeling overwhelming. India, through her work at Starving Kids, has been there every step of the way to guide me through each step of my process. Her enthusiasm and commitment, and her authentic determination to see progression in my career has directly resulted in media exposure (social media, music blogs), radio airplay (my first single reached the AMRAP top 10 for 4 weeks in the regional chart) and most importantly, a mentor who has supported me through each step of the process over the last 15 months. I am so grateful to have India's guidance in my career from trouble shooting, to goal setting and generally just being a strong female role model that I can turn to as I work toward my music career.”

Lottie McLeod Singer, Songwriter and MIC Graduate.
