RAEA (RAY-AH) IS A SINGER-SONGWRITER ORIGINALLY FROM BIRMINGHAM, NOW BASED IN LONDON.
RAEA learnt to play the piano from a young age and was also classically trained on the cello and clarinet; it was this musical grounding that gained her music scholarships at school and 6th form, and a wealth of experience performing and singing in many different groups and ensembles through her academic life.
Moving to Liverpool for university RAEA continued to sing and perform, and notably sang a solo at Gemma Merna (Hollyoaks) wedding in 2012.
After moving to London to study at BIMM in 2015 RAEA has performed at The Troubadour and was asked to be a featured artist at many open mic nights around the capital; and has previously been ‘Go out of Tune’s’ Artist of the Week and also had her tracks featured in their Spotify playlists.
RAEA's catchy pop tracks draw on her experience as a trained musician to give her the distinct pop sound she has today; "I just love the versatility and anthemic quality of the piano. I love playing around with melodies or chords on keys first and then bringing a song to life from there. I tend to write from the heart so quite a lot of my music is autobiographical or semi-autobiographical which hopefully makes the end result an authentic listening experience."
RAEA has recently been played on BBC CWR with her latest track ‘You’ and had glowing reviews in award winning blog on her other releases from ‘A&R Factory.’ Find her on social media @thisisraeamusic for upcoming releases and live videos.
