Lauren Ray

Sweetly soulful singer Lauren Ray to support Lucy Spraggan on her UK tour this autumn!

With a Polish/South African father and English/Irish mother, Lauren Ray and her siblings grew up living in South Africa, Poland, Austria and eventually the UK. Now a London resident, Lauren ‘s success has quickly grown after extensive songwriting in London, LA, and Nashville having worked with the likes of Martin Sutton (LeAnn Rimes) and Ian Dench (Beyoncé.)
This was shortly followed by recording her critically acclaimed debut album ‘We Will Need Courage’ in Nashville. The spellbinding album showcases a masterclass for quality songwriting, production, and all nicely wrapped up by Lauren’s velvety smooth and effortlessly sultry tones. Highlights on the album include the singles ‘Drive’ and ‘Man’ which have received extensive UK regional BBC Radio support as well as support from BBC Radio 6 Music.
Lauren’s sound and vocals also grabbed the attention of US artist Jason Ross who has collaborated with her on his chart topping releases ‘Me Tonight’ and ‘I Will Be There’ thus yielding over one million online steams and No1 hits.
Off the back of her neverending growth and success, Lauren Ray has now been invited to support Lucy Spraggan on her 30 date UK tour this autumn, which is elevating her rapidly as one of the biggest prospects to look out for going into 2018!
