“Over the years, I’ve been exposed to the best Latin music in the fast-growing genre, and Angélica is someone I think everyone should be excited to hear.” - Terry Lickona, producer, Austin City Limits, The Grammys, The Latin Grammys
“Angélica is a rare talent, a singer with music director chops who can straddle the line between R&B and Latin music.” - Adrian Quesada, Grammy Award-winning musician/producer, Grupo Fantasma, Prince, Black Pumas
ANGÉLICA RAHE (pronounced “ray”) has a musical journey that spans the globe. After touring across the U.S., Europe and Latin America with Columbian-American R&B sensation, Kali Uchis, as her musical director, guitarist and backup vocalist (including a North America run opening for Lana Del Rey), Angélica is only beginning to put her talent as a musician, singer and songwriter on full display.
Born of a Spanish musician father and theater actress mother, Angélica split her childhood between Spain, Japan and landed in the U.S. as a young teenager, gaining the musical influences of Sade, Jorge Drexler, Buika, John Mayer and Erykah Badu along the way.
Love, Translated, her debut Spanish-language EP, includes four original songs self-written and recorded between Los Angeles, Miami, and Austin where she recorded with Grammy Award winner Adrian Quesada. The EP also includes a moving duet (“Solo Tú”) with Puerto Rican singer-songwriter, Cosme, that was a crowd favorite during performances at South by Southwest 2019. So far, Angélica has graced stages in Austin, Houston, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. in support of the EP, but has spent much of the year preparing her debut album.
While her early single Pa’lante and Love, Translated, show an impressive range of vocal talent and songwriting abilities, it's the intimacy and sensuality in her lyrics and live performances that will have fans likening her to artists ranging from Jill Scott to Moses Sumney.
Angélica Rahe - whose songs couple American R&B and soul with passionate Spanish language and poetry - gently reminds us that good music, much like love, has no language barrier. Look out for more info on her upcoming debut album in fall 2019, with tour dates to follow.
