Rainer Willeke

I've been in the Victoria scene on and off for 20+ years playing alto sax, most notably with Soul Station 2003-2005. After a personal hiatus I began sitting in at multiple events with the Soul Shakers and Groove Kitchen in 2011, becoming a full-time member of Groove Kitchen from 2012-2014. Since leaving Groove Kitchen, I've been taking a break from gigging to focus on developing my original material. In 2017 I moved to Nanoose Bay & had a studio built in my home and have been writing and producing original music there ever since! The COVID-19 pandemic came on just as I was really getting into putting my first album together, which I am currently in the process of completing in 2021.
