Amelia Ray

The Adventurer of Rock and Roll

Amelia Ray is a travelling musician. This California native has been on the road for over 20 years, and has taken her original soul rock music to Iceland, Senegal, Mexico and many cities and festivals across Europe. Her eighth album, Scenes from an Icelandic Novel, based on Gunnar Gunnarsson's The Black Cliffs, will be released in 2018.

Her songs have been featured in documentaries and her versions of songs by groups as diverse as Roxy Music, Jellyfish, Squeeze and Toy Love may be found on Burning Sky Records' compilations. When she isn't composing, recording or performing, she's dreaming of Jiro's sushi and learning new languages.
