In 2021, Cilla Raie released her ‘Reconnected’ EP which caught the attention of MTV, Wonderland Magazine, BBC 1Xtra, Capital Xtra as well as achieving This is R&B ‘10 R&B artists you should have on your Radar’. The EP peaked at number 2 on the UK Itunes R&B/Soul Album Charts garnering further support from Reprezent, Earmilk and Apple News.

Cilla Raie began recording music at just 14-years-old and takes inspiration from her early influences such as Aaliyah, Toni Braxton and Tamia. During the early stages of her musical journey, Cilla was mentored by super producer DaV-inche (Stormzy, Skepta, Wiley) and manager Jackie Davison MBE (Wayne Hector).

In 2014, Cilla Raie released her first self-titled debut project produced by Sillky (Mabel, Teedra Moses, Craig David) and The Arcade (Doja Cat, Khalid, Migos). She successfully embarked on a national school tour across the UK performing with legislation group UK Music. She also has a unique entrance to the music industry having graduated with a BA honours in Public Relations and a Masters degree scholarship in Music Business Management.

Cilla says: “These experiences I had juggling various part time jobs, being a student and doing music shaped and moulded me into the artist and independent entrepreneur that I am today being an independent artist”.

Her music reveals a deeper message for all: the importance of self-love, reassurance and confidence. 2022 will see the release of yet another exciting Cilla Raie EP supported by Help Musicians/MOBO Awards and Arts.
