Continuing on her path of success, Sorvino released her debut album "Paper Girl" to rave reviews at the top of 2012. The album, executive produced by Los Angeles production team, The Formula, garnered Sorvino more fans and respect across the board, as well as landing her a nomination for Best Female Artist at the 2012 Underground Music Awards in New York. Raven's follow up summer release "Playa del Rey" continued her rise in music. With appearances by Casey Veggies, Problem and production from TDE’s Willie B, Ro.
