Following the release of Lauren Ray’s incredible single Two Days back in December, and a sell out U.K. tour supporting Lucy Spraggan preceding that, Lauren Ray is thrilled to announce that she will be back out on the road again next month, this time supporting Rebecca Ferguson!
Two Days, along with her debut album, was recorded out in Nashville, showing clear elements of a country feel, whilst also maintaining a mellow and reflective side to it.
Lauren’s velvety smooth and effortlessly sultry tones sit perfectly on the elite production, and highlights from the album include singles Come To Me and Drive which received big U.K. regional B.B.C .Radio support as well as support from B.B.C. Introducing.
The singer, who has been compared to Norah Jones and Alison Krauss, grew up in Poland with a South African/Polish father and an English/Irish mother and has lived in both Austria and the U.K., where she earned her degree in Anthropology from Sussex University.
Lauren spent her time performing in Central London Hotel’s whilst songwriting in London, L.A. and Nashville whenever possible as well as holding down jobs closely tied with the music industry to gain experience.
After years of gigging and writing but no traditional label in sight, Lauren took matters into her own hands by securing a financial loan and self-funded the recording and release of her debut album We Will Need Courage to critical acclaim.
With a number of new songs written with hit songwriter Martin Sutton (LeAnn Rimes) under her belt and Nashville producer Neilson Hubbard (Matthew PerryMan Jones) on board to help capture her sound with top Nashville musicians, Lauren’s debut ticks all the right boxes for fans of classic singer songwriters.
With momentum continuing to build for Lauren, she was then invited to support X Factor’s Lucy Spraggan on her 31 date U.K. tour to positive reviews and gaining further support from regional press, radio and B.B.C Introducing.
Now this talented vocalist takes the next giant step and as part of a nationwide tour, Ms. Ray will be coming to Liverpool’s Philharmonic Hall in February.
Lauren Ray comes to the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall in support to Rebecca Ferguson on February 24th. Tickets are available to purchase from the Philharmonic Hall Box office.
