Rayse Biggs

Rayse is an accomplished musician with deep roots. He was born on May 7 in Detroit, Michigan to Willie and Thelma Biggs the third of five children. He was educated in the Detroit Public School System, attending Chadsey High School. He majored in music at Oakland University in Michigan.

Being a performer has always been in his blood. He was frequently called upon at family gatherings to entertain them by dancing and performing skits. Rayse is actually quite a jokester. The family piano in the living room was the beginning of his musical career. His brother, Travis, is an accomplished violinist and Rayse loved his musical skills. Although he did not play the violin, Rayse found his place in music with the trumpet and flugle horn. He is also an exceptional drummer and pianist.
