Croydon’s accomplished Electro R&B princess, Raye (17 years old Rachel Keen), shares ‘Bet U Wish’. Another irresistible number coming off her confident debut EP ’Welcome To The Winter’ (out now as a free download).
The EP features 7 tracks dealing with everyday thoughts and trivialities of a young adult’s life…Just like ‘Hotbox’, written at the age of 15, inspired by her experience on the top deck of a Croydon night bus, when she was greeted by a group of 20-something who decided it was right to light up a joint…That was the moment when Raye realized, that people at this young age like herself, have to passively inhale a lot of crap, whether they like it or not.
Here’s the splendidly smooth ‘Welcome To The Winter’

Raye also plays the Hoxton Square Bar & Grill on 9th December for Gold Dust w/ Laurel, and Jamie Isaac
