“Journey to Lifted Sand”
(New York, NY January 14, 2014) Raye 6, the sexy siren known for her electric, in your face persona, reveals a softer side in her latest release “Lifted Sand”. On a recent UK tour with ILuvLive, Raye 6 had the chance to record with founder of Baby People UK and renowned producer Baby J (Amy Whinehouse, Dead Prez, Estelle, Mexican Kids At Home).
Written and composed in the beautiful countryside of Derby, “Lifted Sand”, the infectious esoteric musical piece poses a few questions “who do you love/who do you trust/is there a fire/burning me up?” The poetic chorus “lifted on a faded grain of sand” is a description of love so faded the only thing left holding it up is a grain of sand.
The scenic visual for Lifted Sand was shot on location at Ashby de la Zouch Castle in Leicestershire, United Kingdom
Filmed by Ne$$ of Weekend Money.
“During a private listening session of the soon-to-be titled project between Baby J & Raye 6 ( due out later this year), we chose a few favorites, “Women Beat The Men” , “Enuff of You” and “I Like” as single material.” WBS Studios
A UK blogger stated, “The fourth performance of the night, was from an amazing young woman, with an incredible and powerful voice that blew the audience away, if you havent guessed by now.. I’m talking about the wonderful Raye 6. Coming all the way from the US of A, Raye 6 put on a great show, that had the audience woo’ing and ooh’ing. Raye 6 bought a different type of energetic vibe to the show that intrigued the audience. Her voice as well as her style was very unique and had many people asking questions such as ‘Who is she?’ and ‘Why have I not heard of her before?’.”
