British singer and total sweetheart, Raye has been working her way up the billboards with some serious music collabs and major hits like ‘By Your Side’ and ‘You Don’t Know Me’. She not only rocks the most flowy, cotton-candy colored curls but she’s also extremely talented and sweet.
1. What advice would you give your younger self?
To trust yourself and the way you feel. I think it’s so easy to lean on everyone around you because they’re more experienced or whatever, but you have to trust your own instincts.
2. When did you first realize you wanted to be serious about music?
It sounds silly, but I was like 10! I was like… ‘Dad, I’m gonna be a recording artist.’ At first, he laughed at me but the he saw I worked really hard. I played piano every day, I was writing songs every day and he understood my passion for it, super supportive, yeah <3
3. What are your darkest Instagram secrets: favorite filter and editing app?
My favorite editing app is VSCO, I love it, it’s so good! It has all the effects, like the fake grain you know? But I don’t usually use filters on Instagram, I maybe brighten pictures sometimes but that’s it!
4. F is For…?
F is For…freak, cos I am one!
