Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil and now based in Los Angeles by way of Miami, Rayssa was always destined to be a performer, singing loudly and proudly wherever she went since childhood. While her initial upbringing pushed her toward a career that valued financial viability, leading to studies in political and computer sciences, she eventually realized her true calling and passion for music. Since then, she has earned two music degrees in Vocal and Guitar Performance from Musicians Institute, and is currently completing an all-encompassing Music Production program as well.  

 

Rayssa makes genuine music that stirs the unconscious and moves the soul. Based on lifelong personal experience, she often works with organizations 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 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 hopeless, 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.
