Moldovan electronic music producer/DJ Andrew Rayel was born Andrei Rată in 1992 in the city of Chisinău.
He developed an early interest in electronic music, working on music on his own by age 13 and performing publicly by 17. He DJ'ed clubs and festivals throughout his early career, and in 2010 he released his first original single, "Always in Your Dreams." A seemingly nonstop string of singles and remixes would continue from there, with Rayel reworking tracks by artists such as Tiësto, Hardwell, Sick Individuals, and the Chainsmokers, all while steadily releasing his own original singles. His debut album, Find Your Harmony, was released in 2014, and was followed three years later by second album Moments. ~ Fred Thomas, Rovi
