RAYE is a force to be reckoned with. In 2019 she was awarded ‘The BMI Impact Award’ in recognition of her ground-breaking artistry, creative vision, and impact on the future of music, and in the UK, she has a double-platinum, five platinum, four gold and four silver singles to her name, plus multiple international accreditations. She is indisputably one of the UK’s premier songwriters. Her songs have amassed over 3.5 billion streams, having written for some of the world’s biggest artists including: John Legend, Ellie Goulding, Khalid, David Guetta, Diplo, and Beyonce.
RAYE’s highly anticipated debut album as an independent artist, My 21st Century Blues, was released in the beginning of 2023 as a deeply personal 13-song body of work – touching on everything from RAYE’s painful experiences in the music industry to sexual abuse, rape, body dysmorphia, addiction, misogyny, and even climate change. The record presented RAYE on her own terms with songs made by RAYE for RAYE, but here to inspire anyone who has faced and overcome adversity.
RAYE was originally scheduled to play at Tinderbox in 2023, but after she had to cancel, we’re extremely happy to have her back on the bill – bigger than ever!
