b. 1924, Madera, California, USA, d. 14 June 2000, Oceanside, California, USA. Rayburn’s first significant professional experience was as vocalist for the Ray Anthony Orchestra. She later sang with Gene Autry and as a member of the Sunnysiders, on their sole Top 20 hit, ‘Hey, Mr. Banjo’, in 1955. Going solo after the Sunnysiders’ fortunes dimmed, Rayburn released ‘I’m Available’, written by Dave Burgess later of the Champs. This Liberty Records single eventually peaked at number 9 in the Billboard pop charts in October 1957. She was unable to follow the single with another hit and gave up her recording career by the mid-60s. She died from a heart attack in 2000.~ Rovi
