Hello! My name is Amya-Ray, 22, I am a singer/songwriter from a small town called Crowthorne. My music is a mix between folk, RNB, indie and pop and my influences are the likes of Warpaint, James Blake, Amy Whinehouse, and Sammy Davis Jr. I don’t feel like I have found my niche just yet, however, in my personal opinion I am free to experiment and grow as an artist pushing the boundaries!
I have just released my debut EP ‘Stella’ on Itunes and GooglePlay. For the last three months I have lived in Amsterdam doing several gigs, writing new material and promoting my EP. Now I’m back in the UK, I am working on my new music video, recording in the studio and moving to Brighton to do gigs.
I’ve always felt passionate about music; my mother said to me that I was singing from the age of two. I discovered I could write music at the age of 11, taught myself guitar six years ago and have been gigging for the last 5 years! My highlight so far has been performing along side with Wretch 32, meeting Ed Sheeran and Nina Nesbitt.
