Phoebe Ray is a 23yr old singer/songwriter based in London and the South East. She is currently working on developing her music from acoustic folk/pop towards a fuller and more adventurous sound with alternative/rock undertones, and is busy writing her first album.

“I wanted to retain the pure vocals and lyrical focus that I learnt though my acoustic work, but also explore other sides of my personality by stepping out from behind the guitar and really performing as a singer,” she says of her new direction.

In January 2012, Chris Evans described her as having the “voice of an angel” after he played her demo ‘Enigma’ on his Radio 2 Breakfast show, having seen her perform at a private event. Since then she has completed a degree at Edinburgh University and is now pursuing music full-time, gigging regularly in London.

“I grew up listening to a lot of Eva Cassidy and Elton John, but generally I have quite a diverse taste in music. I can be influenced by any genre and am currently enjoying artists like Lana del Rey, The Weeknd, and Jessie Ware. I’m never happier than when I’m singing… it’s when I feel most myself!”
