A singer/songwriter hailing from South East London, RHEA began her musical journey drenched in the glorious sounds of early Jazz, Motown and Soul. Growing up in South London, she later moved to Spain and absorbed the bohemian culture and ever-thriving jazz scene, learning the language and developing further. Many moons were spent scribbling on beaches till she felt it was time to come back and release adventurous, compelling music. RHEA made her first move with releasing her debut, ‘Dreams’ – championed by The Line Of Best Fit and Spotify’s Fresh Finds’ playlist, this proved her patience and commitment to writing to be fulfilling.

The London based artist’s newest offering, ‘Views’ sees RHEA take centre-stage with her vocal pushed to the forefront, stepping out of the shadows and into a bolder direction than opposed to her atmospheric debut ‘Dreams’. A lavish terrain of industrial and techno drumbeats echo as the backbone of the new single – with RHEA’s rich, jazz referencing vocal lines that lie in a beautiful melancholia, alongside the evolving instrumentation.
RHEA comments more on the background on her new single.. “Views is about stepping back & seeing things for what they are…this was written as commentary on the current wave of change sweeping through our lives & having been awoken to it. When a person makes a big choice there is always a ripple effect upon others.. Views is a song about, defiance, strength & staying true to oneself.”
