Long gone are the days of showcasing unsigned singer-songwriters to the music industry elite before they've built up a strong social media presence, these days showcasing emerging talent seems like a bold move. Cilla Raie proves that sometimes the direct approach is the only approach. Presenting Cilla Raie to all tastemakers...
Cilla Raie's debut single "No Love" is three minutes of multi-coloured attitude ripping into an R&B/Pop fusion with sing-along chorus & punchy hooks like: "There's no records of me and you, turned my role into somebody new", that US hit songwriter Claude Kelly might wish he had written. Delivering firmly executed modern R&B with rock-solid songwriting & production should have no trouble finding a young audience worldwide.
Born Priscilla Raie Masala, the 20-year-old popstar's alter ego Cilla Raie is a safe haven for her creativity. Starting with her first studio recordings at just 14 years old, where she wrote & recorded her first song using her brothers home studio equipment; fast forward 6 years & she is about to release her self-titled debut EP, which is self-written & co-produced by UK producer's Sillkey [Wiley - "Can Your Hear Me? (Ayayaya)"] (#3 UK charts), Joey Dyer [Conor Maynard - "Cant Say No"], & The Arcade [Iggy Azalea - "Fancy"].
"All these years of developing myself helped me find my sound, I can't wait to start releasing music; I've always had a burning desire to share my passion".
"I never understood why things didn't happen sooner, but it's all been a blessing in disguise (I guess), I've had the opportunity to have hands-on experience, learn & perfect my craft working with top industry professionals."
"Last year, I spent sometime in Los Angeles working with various producers both as an artist as well as a session songwriter. It's always been my passion to be an artist although a lot of doors opened for me as songwriter. Whilst I was creating demos for other artists, I found the label representatives were interested in my solo music career."
