On the forefront of the latest hip hop and r&b wave our city is experiencing at the moment, is triple threat singer, song writer, and producer, Raeliss.
Born in New Orleans, raised in New York, and now living in Vancouver, Raeliss Marrero got his unique first name from his parents; a combination of their names Rafael and Ivelisse. With a self-described sound that’s like, “Tank meets Travis Scott,” his soulful voice tinged with a Southern drawl, layered over decidedly East Coast beats, and accompanied by West Coast visuals truly feel like a culmination of his travel and life experience rolled into one.
When asked why he decided to move to Vancouver in the first place he explains, “I moved here to take a new approach at life. I’ve always looked at traveling as a way to grow; being in Vancouver has definitely helped in my maturing process.”
See the bicoastal crooner perform tomorrow Friday, May 27, at Happy Ending Fridays where he’ll be sharing new music and showcasing his two previously released mixtapes Every Body Know I’m Dope and Blue Dream.
