Songwriter/producer Raia Was creates R&B-influenced art pop that is dark, lustrous and contemplative. Having grown up in the New York music scene, Raia Was is a mainstay within the DIY community, and after years of collaboration and touring as a vocalist and keyboard player, she is finally stepping into her own solo project as a performer.
Raia Was has an exceptional ability to push boundaries and create powerful work that is honest in its exploration of the intricacies and artifice of personality. She performs a controlled suite of electronic music with a rare brooding intensity and haunting sense of color and space set amidst artists like BANKS, James Blake and Rhye.
Side A of her debut LP will be released this fall
