Raisa Andriana was born on 6 June 1990 in Jakarta, Indonesia to Allan Rachman and Ria Mariaty. She studied at Binus University.[1] Raisa's singing talent was shown since her early age. When she was 3, Raisa often pretended to be a singer on stage.[1] Growing up with minimal music education, she picked up her unique singing style and voice through some of her favorite singers such as Brian Mcknight, India Arie, Stevie Wonder, Joss Stone etc.[6][7]


2008–2010: Career beginning and "Andante"[edit]

Her career as a singer began when she collaborated with famous composer David Foster to perform in a concert in Jakarta.[1] She was the vocalist of Andante, a band founded by Kevin Aprilio. In 2008 the band was reshaped and named Vierra, consisting of five members: Raisa, Widi Soediro, Raka Cyril, Satrianda Widjanarko, and Kevin Aprilio himself. She exited the band when the record's label decided it wanted a different concept.[8]

2010–2013: Early success with debut album[edit]

Raisa started gaining recognition with her single "Serba Salah". The song led her to gain popularity in Indonesian music industry.[1] She then won an award in Indonesian Music Awards for Best of the Best Newcomer category.[9]

Her debut album, Raisa, was produced and released in 2011 by Solid Records and Universal Music Indonesia. The album was supported by the young musicians who collaborated as producers: Asta Andoko (RAN), Ramadhan Handy (Soulvibe), and Adrianto Ario Seto (Soulvibe).

On 25 August 2013, she opened Metallica's concert in Jakarta with Indonesian rock/metal band Seringai, performing Indonesia's national anthem "Indonesia Raya".[12]

In 2014, Raisa was appointed as a guest judge for a television talent show: Indonesian Idol Season 8. At first, she was a guest judge but later became permanently involved.
