Essex, England (2002 – present. Gemma Ray is an English singer-songwriter born in Berlin, Germany who grew up in Essex, England. She’s been recording from 2002 on. Her latest album “Island Fire” was released April 2012.

“Wondrous. A true alternative to the wan psychadelic folk of today’s lady-pop troupe” – MOJ.

“Blowing sugary femme-pop out of the water. Gemma Ray is untouchable” – NM.

“By rights, Gemma Ray should be a household name. When stood next to her, Amy Winehouse is revealed to be, if not a charlatan, certainly pedestrian. This album is a rare treat indeed” – BB.

“An eerie aural kaleidoscope that conjures up thoughts of what an album by Mary Weiss of the Shangri-Las produced by David Lynch would have sounded like. Though it echoes with references to mid-’60s melodramatic pop, it’s of the moment and a delight.” – WALL STREET JOURNA.

“I recently saw Gemma Ray in concert and was really impressed by her unique blend of song-writing, vocals and musicianship. Not to be missed!” – JIMMY PAGE, London 200.

“Her aesthetic may be retro, but the tough, moody perspective she brings to vintage song structures feels fresh and ultra modern” – BUS.

“Had Phil Spector forced his girl groups in a more noir-soundtrack direction, this might’ve been the result. Ray has a truly impressive feel for vintage pop flourishes, layered to lavish effect. And all those details are what you’re supposed to be paying attention to, right up until the blade hits your back.” SPIN « hide
