I sat down with Raye to talk about her music, philosophy, writing process and what she is looking to do in the future. Raye's first album was released in April 2017 and was self produced. Her album is a culmination of political expression stemming from causes or situations important to her with songs like "In the River and American Dream" but also shows a vulnerably emotional side with songs such as "Bushwick Avenue and Speedway"
Raye is not shy when talking about causes that are important to her and is someone that wants to do whatever she can to help. Her unique vocal blend, talent for writing and passion has her seeing a growing fan-base that is not only dedicated but embraces her at each show. Something about Raye you might not know, she is a goofball! When I was sitting down with Raye it was refreshing to see an artist joke around, laugh and enjoy what she is doing. As some people might see her as a serious voice for a cause (which she is as well) she is also a kind person with a big smile and contagious laugh. Watch my part one interview with her down below. Part two will be coming soon. Raye is currently on tour with a few dates left on the schedule. You can check out more at her website https://www.rayezaragoza.com/
