RAAD – Trees ‘n Ties [Interview]

  • Please Introduce yourself

My name is RAAD. I’m half Cypriot, half Lebanese and I spent most of my young adulthood exploring the streets of East London , myself and my creative nature.I write, sing and produce my own music; blending flavours from the Middle East and the British urban underground scene. I take all this and fuse it together with hip hop and soul to produce a cultural melting pot of genres, reflecting the diversity of influences I then express through my music.

  • Future plans

To be honest I want it all. I want to learn from the best and become the greatest. So Imma keep writing and releasing music that represents the realest version of myself, my deepest fears until I make my passion a career based on authenticity. I want to be remembered and recognised for my music but also for looking half of my age and cute af (jk)
