Cilla Raie, 23-year-old singer-songwriter from North London, has released her first music video for ”Masterpiece” produced by Joey Dyer (Iggy Azalea – “Fancy“, Katy B, Conor Maynard) with guest backing vocals from Ryan De La Cruz. Taken from her self-titled debut EP ‘Cilla Raie’, ”Masterpiece” has racked up over 20,000 plays on SoundCloud since it’s release.
Directed by Daniel ‘Musical D’ Smith (Dizzee Rascal, Footsie, D Double E), the visuals reflect the concept of emotional vulnerability and passion experienced during a relationship, with the use of close-up shots and glitching transitions to give a emotive vibe for its audience.
Taking inspirations from the likes of Aaliyah, Brandy, & Toni Braxton, Cilla Raie began recording music at just 14-years-old, with grime producer DaVinche being one of her key mentors during the early stages of her musical journey. Combining her love of for R&B and pop music, she delivers heartfelt lyrics with a sultry soft tone of voice across this project.
This year will see the release of Cilla Raie’s second EP, a body of work paying homage to growing pains as a young adult, whilst she embarks on a 2017 School Tour with UK Music delivering music workshops to students across the UK.
