ANNOUNCEMENT: ALBUM RELEASE 25TH OF JUNE

1 juni 2022

Op 25 juni komt mijn nieuwste album “Liberate Me” uit. De release party zal plaats vinden in Sexyland te Amsterdam. Mijn nieuwe album gaat over thema's als klimaatverandering, gender en seksualiteit, seksueel misbruik, mentale gezondheid en vriendschap. Het is bedoeld als een activistisch album en daarom zal ik tijdens de release geld ophalen voor het goede doel. Het geld zal worden ingezameld via de kaartverkoop. Je kunt toegang krijgen tot het evenement door een donatie van 7 euro (of meer) te tonen of door 7 euro aan de deur te betalen. 60% van het uiteindelijk opgehaalde bedrag zal gedoneerd worden. Tot dan!

Ps. Het is tevens vereist om in Sexyland een lidmaatschap van 3 euro aan te schaffen.

ABOUT RAISA

A musical journey

Ever since I can remember I have been making music. I grew up surrounding artists like Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash. I started  secretly playing on my moms old guitar and experimented with the sounds. Soon my parents got me into guitar lessons and singing classes too. I wrote my first song when I was 10 and I never stopped making new ones.


Going through high school I was challenged to perform more and develop myself as a songwriter. After graduating I released my first album on June 14th 2019: Lights On.


I moved to Amsterdam soon after where I planned to do further pursue my musical journey. Soon however the Covid-19 pandemic hit. I found comfort in making music and started recording more and more song in my bedroom studio. Going through a mixture of emotions during the pandemic, I soon had a wide range of songs. I decided to call the album The Lost, The Lonely & The Lovers. It was released in november 2020 through an online performance.


Through my academic career and experiences within the queer community in Amsterdam, I found myself more and more concerned with the social inequalities surrounding me. I started writing songs more external to me about every day situations I read about or stories I heard. It became an inspiration for a new album. Liberate Me will be released in June 2022 and will mark a new era in my music. Music that challenges political established conceptions and gives a voice to those often silenced.
