Memphis Based R&B Label Mime Records Artist PORCELAN, JESSICA RAY & BRANDON LEWIS Collaborate On R&B Classic!
Posted By: LaMarr Blackmon on June 08, 2020

#PORCELAN #BRANDONLEWIS #JESSICARAY

Mime Records’ label artists PORCELAN, BRANDON LEWIS, and JESSICA RAY recently came together to record a powerful cover of Bill Withers "Lean On Me". No matter your age or background, "Lean On Me" is a hit song known by nearly everyone. It’s a song that has proven to stand the test of time, applicable to almost any situation that speaks to the innate human desire and need to have meaningful relationships. With COVID-19 running rampant and causing uncertainty for nearly everyone and the recent passing of Bill Withers, this song serves as both a hopeful reminder to everyone to come together and as an honorable tribute to the late legend, Bill Withers.

JESSICA RAY is a triple threat—singer, songwriter and
entertainer—from Memphis, TN. Jessica Ray has opened
for popular R&B group Dru Hill, sang with prominent artist
Aaron Neville and made an appear-ance on BET’s 106 &
Park. She has recently released her single Whatever and
the Spanish version Lo Que Sea. She has more songs
scheduled to be released throughout the remainder of this
year.


Lean On Me is heartfelt and encouraging, and that is
what one will feel when listening to Porcelan, Jessica
Ray and Brandon Lewis’ personal spin to the song.
Brandon Lewis’ smooth voice was the perfect element in
between Porcelan’s robust voice at the beginning of the
song and Jessica Ray’s passionate ad libs and hook. Their
voices blended together to form a beautiful harmony, and
the beat complements their different musical styles.

PORCELAN is a recording artist and songwriter
from Memphis, TN. Along her musical journey,
Porcelan has appeared on BET’s 106 & Park,
collaborated on materi-al with super-producer
Timbaland, opened for singer Tank and gained
invaluable performance experience during a threemonth
tour in China. Porcelan recently released her
latest single Act Out, with more songs to be released
this summer

BRANDON LEWIS has developed an artistic instinct
when approaching new projects. His creative approach
is felt through the release of his debut single Natural
High and the energy he brings as an entertainer. As a
charismatic yet soul-ful R&B artist, he has been able
to capture a dynamic sound with his music. Inspired by
the soulful origins of his home-town Memphis,
Brandon Lewis is well on his way to creating a credible
name in the industry.
