Aug 3, 2021 – For those of us that have heard about, or are fans of ‘Raya Dize’, the stories of her name, musical career, journey, and style have been elusive. More so for those that haven’t even heard of her at all. You might not know her name right off the bat but the singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist has always been about the bigger picture.

Raya grew up in a multicultural family of both Canadian and Russian heritage. Born in Germany, Raya has moved to a variety of places around the world. She said that never staying in the same place for long has given her the ability to easily adapt to different cultures and people.
Raya started listening to and playing classical music at the age of 3. A teacher noticed her gift and told her parents to cultivate this talent. So, they enrolled her in a classical music school in Russia. There, she studied 6 to 7 hours a day to become a classical pianist. She explained, “Music never let me down and I devoted my life to it in gratitude. I honestly believe that classical music is a journey that will provide a lifetime of both listening and educational pleasure.”
Above all, Raya believes that love, compassion, and kindness are the real reasons why we are all here and according to her, “if you lose sight of this, you have failed in life”. She believes in going towards your dreams, staying loyal to them, and always showing kindness to others.
“Life is a miracle and all of us are a part of it. You never know what’s going to happen tomorrow. So, believing in yourself is the way to show respect to something up there that has given us a chance to enjoy our lives.”
