Cilla Raie is a UK British R&B Singer/Songwriter from London. Taking inspirations from the likes of R&B Legends Aaliyah, Brandy and Destiny’s Child. Cilla Raie began recording music at just 14-years-old, with credible grime producer DaVinche (Stormzy, Skepta, Wiley) and Jackie Davidson MBE (Wayne Hector) being her mentors during the early stages of her musical journey. Cilla then went on to develop professional relationships with established music producers KZ, Rymez and Tre Jean Marie, working with artists such as Avelino, Double S and C Cane.
