[R]AYE is reinventing pop music as we know it. With big arrangements, ethereal vocals and a whole lot of attitude, the 19 year old South London girl is making pop R&B that’s stadium-ready.
Raised in a Pentecostal Church where her father played keyboard, RAYE has been writing and singing since she was ten years old, as well as playing multiple instruments.
First catching our attention with her Welcome to the Winter EP a few years back – it’s the raw emotion and sophisticated pop of her songs that makes her stand out in a sea of sameness. And she knows how to rock a tracksuit.
2017 is about to be a big year for RAYE, so we caught up to chat about working on her first album, healing from heartbreak and staying true to herself.
