ABOUT THE ARTIST

Powerhouse vocalist, songwriter, producer and recording artist Raye 6 has been calling Brooklyn home since 2005. Currently based between Brooklyn and Miami, she has evolved into a stellar talent who has been able to travel the world sharing her musical gifts. She’s collaborated with a wide array of artists such as but not limited to: M1 of Dead Prez, Joe Buddens, Ghostface Killah and Chris Sholar (Beyonce/Kanye West) to name a few. Her “Grace Jones-esque” audaciousness enabled her to crash the MTV Movie Awards Red Carpet in 2010 upon which, images of her went viral alongside Christina Aguilera & Katy Perry.

She headlined the OUT Music Awards in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood in 2012, toured Japan & London and has performed at major music festivals including SXSW, WMC, Art Basel Miami, CMJ and more.

Raye 6 has been featured in magazines like Clam, Star, Glamour, Luire, Japan Times and in commercials for BET Rip The Runway & the Greater Than Campaign. Her wide array of influences include Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, Prince, Michael McDonald, Miguel, Justin Timberlake, MGMT, Empire Of The Sun, Fever Ray, Kaputt, Bat For Lashes, Lenny Kravitz, Ledisi, Gorillaz & Little Dragon.

Over the course of her career Raye has independently released 4 projects starting with her mixtape  L.I.P.S (Love is Powerfully Sexy) in 2010 followed by her holiday EP " A Raye 6Christmas" in 2011 and her Universal Lover LP in 2012. In 2014 she released the Baby Raye EP, produced by UK producer Baby J (Amy Winehouse) which included her most recent singles “Lifted Sand” and “I Like”. The EP was released on the producer's imprint Baby People (UK). This project also initiated a dramatic transformation in her look and sound as an artist, revealing a more polished and sophisticated aesthetic that has left her fans awestruck!

From 2014-2015 Raye accomplished some major milestones in her solo career including the launch of her Pandora station, her single “I Like” climbing to #2 on iTunes in Eastern Europe and her famed NYC Summerstage debut as a headliner accompanied by a 15-piece orchestra in front of 3,000+ crowd. In addition she released a brand new dance remix of her single"Lifted Sand" produced byDJ/Producer OP!  (I Love Vinyl/ Afrokinetic).  In October 2015 she made her BAM Café Live debut with a solo show in front of a capacity crowd that left a line of patrons out the door clamoring to get in. With that show she first revealed music from the new project that she had been embarking on of writing and producing her forthcoming full-length album entitled “Life of 6”, slated to drop in Summer 2016.
