    Raye is wonderful to work with. She was timely, and got it perfect on the first shot. Additionally, her voice has so much power and emotion that you would be hard pressed to find someone who can so quickly and effectively add feeling to a song. She is real pleasure to work with.

  2. A: I just released a project titled "Mother and Wife." It is a hiphop soul project. I am proud because I created a marketing campaign for the project and it was effective. Also, one of the songs on the project I did completely by myself- with the exception of the drum beat.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Currently, I am finishing up personal projects.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: I was once asked if I was copying and pasting vocals instead of singing them all the way through- that is not something that I do unless we discuss it.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: What is your ultimate goal for the project? Do you intend to list me as the vocalist- and if so- can I hear the finished product? I may not want to be listed.
