Mixing the nostalgia of 80’s soulful pop music with Nashville’s songwriting style, this powerhouse performer is effortlessly reviving the “Diva Pop” sound for this generation. With a personality as big as her voice, let us introduce the Motor City – Music City hybrid force that is Raye Williams.
In September 2019, it was announced that Raye had partnered up with TIDAL, the only artist-owned global streaming service, spear-headed by Jay-Z. TIDAL unveiled that Raye was 1 of 5 artists chosen to take part in a new $1 million endowment program to support emerging artists, called TIDAL Unplugged and kicking off in Detroit. Featured everywhere from Billboard and AP Press to Pitchfork and Variety Magazine - this opportunity has put Raye in a spotlight like never before with new TIDAL exclusive music and a documentary coming in February 2020.
