BIOGRAPHY of R.A.U.L. (RighteousRecords)

Raul Esteban Nunez was raised by his grandparents in the Dominican Republic. At the age of 9, he experienced the death of his grandfather. At that time the love and passion for music began. When R.A.U.L. was 8, he picked up a record he found that his mother and father recorded before he was born. His eyed lit up when he saw his own mother and father on the cover. He was always playing around with records and tape players. He loved to sing along to whatever was playing. At that time he believed that making music was putting vinyl on a record and singing along while it was playing. It seemed so interesting to him.

On February 18, 1975 R.A.U.L. was born in a small town in Massachusetts called Methuen. His mother lived in a town near by called Lawrence. At the age of 13, his mother flew him from Dominican Republic to live with her in Lawrence, MA. From that point on, his mother raised him alone. R.A.U.L.’s father was never there, not even at the hospital when he was born. He went to grammar and high school in Lawrence. He dropped out in the 12th grade. Before he dropped out he was the lead singer in church. He also played the drums and performed in plays. He left all that when he dropped out and began to live the street life which ended him up in trouble with the law.

In February 1998, R.A.U.L. went to Florida to visit where he ended up staying. It was a struggle for him at first. This is when he bought an electronic piano and began writing his own songs. Mid year 1999 R.A.U.L. went into a studio where he discovered his true talents. Everyone asked how he did it when he recorded his first song. It was an emotion that is indescribable to him. R.A.U.L. had an opportunity to land a recording contract with the Estefan’s. He was introduced to members of ASCAP. He had a chance to begin his career. He was too into the street though. He didn’t realize at that time that he let his dreams slip through his hands.

Between 2002-2007 R.A.U.L. experienced some things that he never expected to go thru. For instance, he was rushed to the hospital bleeding profoundly with a cut in his neck and in his shoulder. The doctors were able to save his life because the wound he got on his neck missed his jugular by a centimeter. God gave R.A.U.L. another chance but some how he had to pay for that chance in life. He went to move from his bed and found himself shackled to the bed he was lying in. Come to find out he had a probation violation. He was taken to Broward County Infirmary which was one of the worst experiences he ever went thru. This made him realize it was time to change his lifestyle. He met his fiancé while he was working at a flea market. They had a baby boy named Cristian. Their son was born with a heart condition. He had to be flown to Miami Childrens Hospital where he had to undergo surgery to save his life. At that moment, R.A.U.L.’s world seemed to be falling apart. For him, this was worse than being in jail. Once again, God answered his prayers and the surgery was successful.

R.A.U.L. now owns his own Record Label called Righteous Records. He produces and writes his own songs. He is currently recording his first album called 4 R.E.A.L.L.Y. He released his first single “People Know” which is now being promoted. He is also pursuing acting in his career.
