RAE Music Official 

I’ve had the chance to work with many music artist over the last three years and I have only come across a couple artist who even come close to RAE.

One year ago, she moved to Los Angeles and really started honing her craft and taken her music to the next level. I got the chance to catch up with Rae and learn a little more about who she is. Here’s what she had to say.
