Despite growing up in a relatively sheltered household to christian missionary parents, Raylin has always been "bad to the bone," an endearing term gifted to her by her Grandfather Ray. Singing for as long as she can remember, she began recording her little songs that she made up around the same time that she started writing and illustrating short stories, when she was about 5 years old. But she didn't really begin exploring music until years later in her teens when she began rebelling against what was deemed as "normal" and discovered her love of alternative cultures, including rock and metal music alongside the world of fetishism. It catapulted her into a path of self discovery and expression through various artistic and taboo outlets, while she dipped her toe into as many different things as possible in a pursuit to "try everything twice".
Growing up in Scotland, she originally aspired to be a stage and film actress leaving high school at age 15 to study her further education at college. But her deviant curiosity equaled with her vivacious nature and sexual freedom led her to try modeling nude, an event that had such positive impact on her self confidence and feelings of empowerment that she made it the main focus in her life. Delving even deeper into alternative ways of thinking and frequenting the best fetish clubs in Europe, she voraciously explored, becoming a successful London agency signed fetish & glamor model before eventually choosing to dive even deeper and become a house hold name in the world of erotic films, all in the name of experimentation!
But she's not done yet. Now, feeling the need for something different, she is moving on to the next adventure. This time in a desire to explore that long dormant but not forgotten aspect of herself.. Music.
Having been the daughter of an entertainer, musical performance has long been a passion of hers, albeit a hidden one. Her desire is to now explore herself further in whole new ways, perhaps even more intimately than before.
As always, she invites you to watch.
Raylin Joy currently performs as singer/songwriter, actress, model, performance artist and occasional DJ while residing in Los Angeles with her three cats.
