Raisa - Bio
Raisa was born and raised in Eastern Europe, her interest in music was sparked by piano music and later on jazz and soul music.
She enrolled in music school at the age of 6 and continued onto music college at the faculty of jazz vocal. After the graduation she was developing her craft in the music business while living in Los Angeles (2012-2014) for some time. She started to work on production and song writing, which led her to venture on to recording her first single “Blessed inside”( is available on all music platforms). In 2019 Raisa released her second EP ” Stronger”.
Stronger – is my personal anthem, in which I’m finally capable to stand up for myself and do it in a classy and elegant way. I believe that women all over the world can relate to the feeling of not being heard or not being taken seriously. I encourage any girl that is being manipulated or taken advantage of, to stand up and say that’s enough! We are smart, dedicated and we are stronger in our nature of vulnerability and feminine wisdom.
Raisa has built an impressive profile in Dubai as her unique sound and fusion style become her signature look.

I believe that nowadays there are more opportunities for a new artists, because there is an instant access to so many musicians to collaborate with and creative process also become more convenient. You can record an album at your home studio and you can as well distribute it via many platforms. There is no longer need, to be signed by the labe.
