Raiche Announces Release of Debut EP 'DRIVE'
GDE/Island Prolific/Atlantic Records recording artist, Raiche, has introduced the release of her highly anticipated debut EP. DRIVE is now available at all digital music retailers and streaming services. Download here.
Raiche surely caught the ears of many with her breakthrough 2018 release, "Money Pies" which earned immediate media attention upon its summer arrival, with Essence writing, "If you're looking for a new bop, add Raiche's 'Money Pies' to your rotation." The track was accompanied by a colorful video directed by the all-female Verluxe collective. Soon after she followed up with the recently released "Complicated" which drew inspiration from the 1972 classic "I Miss You" by Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes.
With her breezy vocals and refreshingly unique singing style, Raiche has proven herself to be a breath of fresh air. The young artist fuses soulful roots with modern pop to concoct a genuinely distinctive new sound all her own, lit up with confidence, consistency and positivity. Born and raised in Pittsfield, MA, just two hours outside of Boston, Raiche devoted her energies towards music from an early age, uploading cover videos to YouTube that almost immediately earned her online applause. Her musical dreams almost came to a halt following high school graduation but some encouraging words from her beloved Nana eventually led her to Boston, where she met and began being mentored by DJ Knock Out. The local legend soon introduced Raiche to her GDE production team as well as to award-winning songwriter and producer Prince Charlez (Rihanna, Beyonc', Usher), who promptly signed the gifted young vocalist to his recently launched Island Prolific imprint at Atlantic Records.
"My mission is to work hard and keep going, no matter what," Raiche says. "And to make music that reflects solid, positive energy along the way."
