Rayssa fuses iconic pop, illustrious EDM, and electrifying rock guitars to create a uniquely mind-bending sound. Her rich vocals and poignant lyrics speak to the depths of the psyche, tapping in to the inner person and healing the scars within.

Born in São Paulo, Brazil, Los Angeles-based Rayssa Slater makes genuine music that stirs the unconscious and moves the soul. She's earned two degrees in music  for Vocal Performance and Guitar Performance, a certification in Electronic Music Production, and is a Logic Pro X Apple Certified Pro. As an actress, she quickly earned the coveted SAG card and consistently works on highly regarded TV shows and films. In her free time, she passionately surfs, is an American Red Cross Certified Lifeguard, and often works with non-profit organizations like TWLOHA that guide people to recovery from depression and substance abuse, and raise mental health awareness. Between this social work advocacy, her unending support of the Black Lives Matter movement, and her deep connection to surfing and the sea - “the ocean’s where I feel most at home, where my soul is most comfortable,” as she says, Rayssa’s songs shine with finding inner strength, hope in the hopelessness, and light in the darkness.

The world has begun to take note of Rayssa’s radiant voice and charisma, including established artists The Beach Boys, Nick Jonas, and Demi Lovato, who invited her to share their stages, such as Coachella’s main stage and the legendary Henson Studios, formerly A&M Studios. Even in larger-scale productions and as a vocalist for hire, she always delivers inspirational performances that leave an indelible impact on her ever-expanding audience.
