RAYE – Bet U Wish

We don’t really know what else to say about this 17-years-old electro-pop / R&B artist who’s releasing these weeks a great song right after another. Bet U Wish is the third song taken from Welcome To The Winter, RAYE‘s debut EP which is out now and available for FREE download through her official website. It’s amazing that a young artist as Rachel, who builds her music on a modern and fresh sound, mentions as landmarks and sources of inspiration soul/jazz classic performers like Nina Simone, Nat King Cole or, moving closer to more recent times, Nick Drake* and her all-time-favorite Lauryn Hill.

Growing up in a musical family, she began writing her own music since the age of ten, when she was also having her first approaches with various instruments (cello, guitar, flute, piano are on the list). The result is that now RAYE is able to write, perform and produce her 7-tracks debut EP. Not bad for an underage artist, right? Listen to Bet U Wish below and grab Welcome To The Winter here.

*It has been 40 years since he passed away. He’s still missed.
