Berkshire born singer-songwriter Raiche has been chasing her musical dreams for as long as she can remember.

In 2018 she signed to Atlantic Records and released her first major market single, the infectious and unique Money Pies off the EP Drive. Since then, the hustle hasn't stopped.

The sultry singer's music has been featured on the Netflix show Rythym + Flow, a music talent competition featuring Chance The Rapper, Cardi B, and T.I and Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker, starring Academy Award winner Octavia Spenceralso streaming on Netflix.

In January of this year, Billboard put Raiche on a list of 15 Hip Hop and R&B Artists to Watch in 2021 and had this to say:

 Raiche is another gifted member of the aptly titled Island Prolific roster, co-founded by songwriter-producer Prince Charlez (Rihanna, Beyoncé, Usher). Gaining favorable notice in 2018 for her smoky, robust vocals on “Money Pies,” Raiche upped the soulful quotient in 2019 with “Complicated,” followed by her EP Drive, issued via GDE/Island Prolific/Atlantic. The title track was featured in Netflix’s Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker. Raiche’s hard work and promise are paying off: The singer-songwriter currently ranks at No. 8 on the Adult R&B airplay chart with relationship slow-burner “Pick a Side,” from her upcoming debut album. 


Speaking of Alicia Keys, the 15-time Grammy award winner recently shared a video of Raiche singing on her Instagram account for her 20 million followers to check out. Fellow singers Jill Scott and Toni Braxton also commented on the video, giving the  Berkshire County native props for her impressive sound.

Raiche is currently living in Atlanta and has been working with legendary music producer Dallas Austin, who has worked with TLC, Monica, Blu Cantrell, Chris Brown and a slew of other A-listers. She also participated in a song-writing seminar with the one and only Babyface, an icon in the music industry.

Despite her continued success, Raiche took time out of her busy schedule to stop by Slater & Marjo in the Morning while home visiting family. She talked about her growth as a person and as an artist  and dropped her new single Burn Your Clothes, which is one of her favorite songs to date. Check it out
