Biography

"Picture this- an over excited, bright eyed- admittedly a little over zealous 4 year old little girl sits eagerly awaiting her first ever school report. As she excitedly tears open the envelope she asks her Mum to read out loud the box marked ‘music’, it reads "Raphaella can sing in tune". As expected or perhaps unexpectedly she is disappointed, because to her- her love of music and singing even at this age coupled with her big brown eyes full of pre-school optimism feels like this matter of fact statement is so flat and impersonal that it may as well not have even been written at all. As it turns out, being able to sing ‘in tune’ as her teacher had put it- at this age was a feat few four year olds could achieve, and was actually quite rare (I know right, who knew?). So, fast forward 18 years (yes that’s right.. with all mental arithmetic done you should be at age 22), Raphaella- well.. me.. is still hopelessly in love with music, and if you were wondering- yes, also a definite- but definitely proud ‘geek’. So why don't you join me over a virtual Flat White or in fact a cup of Persian tea and find out a little bit more about me below :-) Well it is a bio after all, right? x"
Be prepared to be taken on a roller coaster of emotions when listening to Raphaella, as her songwriting takes you on an education of the heart with the highs of flying and the lows of falling… in LOVE.
On first glance you may think Raphaella is a typical girls’ girl with an overuse of ‘lol’ in her tweets, but look a little deeper and you’ll find this 22 year old Persian/English girl from North London has a profound/in depth love for Rumi, Shakespeare, Hafez, Jane Austin, and the French Revolution with Raphaella joking, ‘When I make it onto Celebrity Mastermind, I will know I have made it! lol’

Raphaella's earliest memories of music were hearing Count Basie, Peggy Lee, Carmen, Mahler and more, being blasted out from her late Grandad's Stained Glass Artist studio in Dorset, who had a vast record collection of 78's and Vinyl’s, & being told that as a toddler she would hum along to 'Hello Dolly' and Sesame Street's ABC, in fact she's never stopped singing… ever.

So it comes as no surprise that Raphaella is where she is now, forging her identity as a successful independent Artist and Songwriter & is currently writing for her Artist project with International multi-selling Platinum writers & producers: Curtis Richardson (Joss Stone, J-Lo, Rihanna, Craig David, Mariah Carey), Phillipe-Marc Anquetil (Tinie Tempah, Jessie J, Kelly Rowland, Little Mix), Hiten Bharadia (Jessie J, Lemar, Craig David, The Overtones, Lee Ryan, Lawson), Adam Argyle (Newton Faulkner, Ollie Murs, Josh Kumra, Matt Cardle), Neil Athale (Josh Kumra, Lawson, Paloma Faith, Matt Cardle), Dan Gautreau (Ben Howard, Alicia Keys, Kylie), Ben Harrison (Rihanna, Emeli Sande, Tinie Tempah)

Since graduating from University (The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance) in 2011 with a 1st class honours degree in Music & formerly classically trained in piano & violin, Raphaella hasn’t stopped creating music.

Since signing a Publishing deal in April 2012 with respected UK independent Phrased Differently she’s unsurprisingly been in great demand as a songwriter with many international cuts including a certified Gold record for Ivy Quainoo ‘The Voice’ winner of Germany, ‘The Voice’ winners of Korea and Bulgaria, K-Pop giants SHINee, Dionne Bromfield, Nabiha, etc.

Raphaella’s artist career to date has seen her join line ups with Texas, Joss Stone, Beverley Knight, The Rizzle Kicks, Clement Marfo And The Front Line, Lianne La Havas, etc.

Highlights she says of 2012 were; ‘performing on the iconic Shark Stage at the London 2012 Olympics & Paralympics as one of the few selected artists by Emerging Icons & The Roundhouse, the MUD of The Secret Garden Party & Hop Farm where I got to christen my red wellies at my very first festivals! And having my original track ‘Above The Water’ being selected as one of the songs to make the official 2012 accredited Olympic album ‘Album in the Park’ with Emerging Icons. Recently Manoto TV has also featured Raphaella in a primetime documentary 'One day with Raphaella' introducing her to the Persian Diaspora and Middle East across the world.

Raphaella has also played at The Roundhouse (Camden) for the Music Week Awards, The UEFA Champions League Private Party & Roundhouse Access All Areas, and as a Roundhouse Emerging Artist has also been selected to take part in the 30:30 EMI Roundhouse project (2010) and the ‘Unconvention: Album in a Day’ project where Raphaella was selected alongside Viv Albertine and Charli XCX to record her beautiful arrangement of the Clash’s iconic ‘I’m not Down’ live.

When performing either acoustically, sitting alone behind the piano or fronting her live band Raphaella's voice is her secret weapon....it's beautiful, captivating and unique and consistently cuts through the noise of everyday life to speak straight to the heart.

Raphaella is also an Ambassador for the International charity Global Angels & the youth led charity Kids Count UK who both work to alleviate suffering, poverty & issues facing children & young people around the world.
Raphaella will independently release her debut E.P. 'IDIOT' on April 1st 2013.
