Still working on that hot first release.



Detroit city is an urban jungle of hidden gems and artist Rai Knight is no exception. On any given night, you may find her spinning house jams, captivating a crowd with her vocals— you may have even read some of her music reviews via Indie Shuffle under her original moniker Rachel Skotarczyk, but first and foremost Rai Knight is a singer/songwriter.

Rai's roots began with an acoustic guitar, writing and recording her first album on a 4-track tape recorder 2001. With a bit of musical wanderlust, she's interchangeably infused elements of bossanova, folk, outlaw country, blues, pop, R&B and country into her vivid career. Along with solo releases, her unique voice has led to collaborations with producers such as HNQO (under the moniker, bip), Cosmonaut Grechko, Leigh D Oliver, The GTW, The Soundmen and more.

Her work has been supported by Capitol Records, Hot Creations/Hot Waves, OFF Recordings, HookBellboy Records, Large Music and Defected Records.

Her most recent collaboration pairs her with HNQO & Dake and a spirited track called "Obsessed" with recent releases from Leigh D Oliver via Large— a sultry deep house track with a jazz flavor entitled "Girl From The D" and a jackin’ house number called Heat.”

Rai is currently working on an album— a shining example of her folk/outlaw style songwriting. Preview the demos Woodward Sessions below.
