Rachel “Rayche” Stanford was destined for music stardom. Being that the Brooklyn native derives from a tribe of aunts who own amazing voices, the natural assumption was that the little girl who always sung along to commercials would also be a singer.
Where are you based?
East Flatbush, Brooklyn, NY
How long have you been making music?
Pretty much all my life, as long as I can remember
What genre would you consider your music to be?
What inspired you to pursue a career in music?
I have aunts that are musicians, so I pretty much followed in their footsteps, seeing them in perform when I was a child
What are your biggest musical influences?
I grew up inspired by divas like Mariah Carrey, Mary J. Blige and Lauryn Hill, but I was more interested in spitting like rap lyricists Jadakiss, Jay-Z, Eminem and Remy Ma.
Are you signed to a label or are you an independent artist?
I am managed by IMPERIAL A-TEAM L.L.C. out of Brooklyn, NY
What have been the biggest challenges in your music career?
Working full-time and having a child makes it difficult to maintain my music career, thanks to management, I can balance things better and get far more accomplished
How many songs or albums have you released to date?
3 altogether, 2 songs I released in 2019 before I had management, but in 2020 I released my latest single “GIANT”
Can you tell us a few things about your latest release?
The first shot is my single “Giant.” Produced by my manager Gezzell, it’s a drill track with a sonic frenzy. The highlight of the track is my flow.
Any plans for new music or upcoming projects we should know about?
My follow up single is a good vibes only ode “Up.” The melodic tune is full of life and serves as a perfect home for my penmanship. Although, my rhymes and delivery forecast a future championship, I’m looking forward to showcasing vocal ambidextrousness on my upcoming EP.
