The album is here!
It was two years in the making but the experience alone has been pure magic!
Every hour spent in the studio with Wes Maebe and the musicians and singers has been wonderful – a growing time for me and for the songs.
I have collaborated with Wes and Jon Klein on some songs – a new approach for my writing and so much fun and so rewarding that we three are already writing new material for the second album!
We perform at WacArts on 16th December and have a couple of other upcoming dates to be confirmed … before the album launch on the 9th Feb at The Lexington.
My music is like a constant rebirth – with every song I feel renewed and alive …. I give thanks to the stars and to The One for my life
My brief bio is below … but its all about The Now!
Raie sang background vocals and in a cappella groups before releasing her debut single ‘Talkin Bout You’ in 2010 to launch her singer songwriter career.
Since then she has performed in venues such as The Forge, Camden Roundhouse, Club Floridita, and Hammersmith Apollo.
Raie has gained the support of renowned engineer / producer Wes Maebe. He co-produced her first EP Earthbound with a host of internationally celebrated artistes – Ralph Salmins, Hugh Wilkinson, Jon Klein and the legendary Elliott Randall.
[Raie is] …. a purveyor of pin-me-to-the wall, beautiful life-enhancing soul music. A sweet, certain surprise… ‘Earthbound’ is [Raie’s] first release – a neat little seven track EP … that mixes soul, bossa-nova and gospel – Martin Cooke – Bluesmatters
Raie followed this recording with ‘Raie Live at The Albany’ featuring a 13 piece band; live DVD available on request.
