Growing up in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, just two hours shy of Boston, Raiche found music at an early age. A popular girl turned loner, Raiche would focus on her craft, uploading cover videos to YouTube. She relocated to Boston, where she became enmeshed in the nightlife scene thanks to her sister, meeting local legend DJ Knock Out, who brought Raiche on board with his production team GDE. While on tour with Sevyn Streeter, Knock Out met singer/songwriter Prince Charlez. The two forged a friendship, and once Charlez heard Raiche’s demo, the “Money Pies” would soon arrive. Her music hit the streets, she inked a deal with Atlantic Records, and the rest is history.
Now, Raiche is geared to make an impact on the world with her upcoming EP Drive arriving March 1st. The project features seven songs all showing various dimensions of Raiche’s style and sound. “I’ve really grown from the time when I was a cover song artist,” she says. “Now my connection to these songs is personal, and you can feel it in my voice.”
