By Kent Johnson // Gray Graft Media

On this episode of UNGENTRIFIED, I am joined by RĀI (pronounced ‘ray,’ @raimusicworld), recording artist and the vocal force behind the #1 Soul album, Love’s On The Way. We discuss the ups and downs of going the independent route, releasing music (and making money) in a stream-centric industry, what it takes to make a #1 album as an independent artist, and preview some of the tracks from the album.
