Born and raised on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, Raffaella is quick to rattle off Billie Holiday, St. Vincent, and Regina Spektor as her biggest influences. She spent the early days of her career collaborating with the band Bråves who encouraged her to begin releasing original music. During her noteworthy experience as a student at the University of Southern California, joining a sorority 3,000 miles from home proved to be something of a social experiment which inspired her breakout single ‘Sororicide’ featuring bright piano bubbles and a homage to Heathers. Raffaella moved back home to New York City to attend Columbia University and continue to build her musical persona. Following her debut, Raffaella’s second track, ‘Bruce Willis’, continued to develop her clever and catchy dream pop sound. Now Raffaella gives us another peak at her forthcoming EP Ballerina in her newest track, ‘NASA's Fake’, which saw support from both Consequence of Sound and Nylon.
This fall, Raffaella spent time touring with Sigrid, Alice Merton and Liz Phair.
