The Adventurer of rock and roll
Amelia Ray is a travelling composer, multi-instrumentalist, singer and writer, as well as an arranger and producer. This California native has been on the road for over 20 years, performing and collaborating across the Americas, Europe and Africa.
Inspired by a stay at the Skriduklaustur artist residency in Iceland, Ray composed the literary-themed album Scenes from an Icelandic Novel, based on Gunnar Gunnarsson's The Black Cliffs. This album, which has been in the works for nearly a decade, will soon be released on her own Out of 3 Sigma label. Other projects include her powder pop dance venture Why No Dream, whose debut EP, Cités, was released in September 2018.
Ray is also the host of MashUpheaval, an all-request, live performance mashup podcast.
