Ra means 'the sun god' in ancient Egyptian, 'the brightest star' & 'lion's roar' in ancient Persian astrology. His voice is a gospel soul wail that reminds the listener of Stevie Wonder, Donnie Hathaway, Whitney Houston & Chaka Khan. His iconoclastic look is in the sartorial rock-dandy tradition of Bowie & Prince. His performance style is fiery & commanding making the smallest of stages feel like massive stadiums. Ra started recording professionally at age 8, published as a songwriter at 10 & netted a major-label recording contract as a teenager. He recorded an exclusive press-only album which almost instantly became a bootlegged, cult classic & critical success garnering such accolades as 'lyric sheet of the year' from Spin magazine, 'cult classic' from village voice & 'glorious singing' from New York Times.
