As Electro infused R&B gains more traction by the day, music’s hottest newcomers continue to effortlessly display the fusion with such style and high quality production. Our latest discovery comes from South London and possesses a maturity that’s unmatched by her young age. Raye, only 17 years old, has begun to make a triumphant stamp on British R&B with her debut EP Welcome To The Winter, which she released to high praise towards the end of 2014. Co-producing the EP by herself, Raye proves that being able to play multiple instruments like the cello, flute, guitar and piano makes her a young force to be reckoned with, early in her career. The 7-track project attests to both her eclectic styles in production, and her eloquent and profound take on some real life stories told through her tasteful melodies, making Raye relatable to her audience.
We want you to get familiar with Raye, as she’s just inked a new deal with Polydor Records, home to some of music’s biggest names like Ellie Goulding, Will. I. Am., Maroon 5, and more! We look forward to hearing what her major label debut will sound like, because she has gained fans here at Dope Avenue. Until then her debut EP Welcome To The Winter is available for streaming below:
