The Berlin-based, Essex born Gemma Ray brings her band and reverb drenched atmospheric sound to NZ this May. Her sound has been described as Gothic-folk and pop-noir, but tags aside – it’s a moody mix of psychedelic blues with a hefty nod to her sizzling cinematic side. She also writes and produces music for film and television and notably worked with famous German director Wim Wenders – see it here
Gemma Ray’s latest opus The Exodus Suite is a dramatic 52-minute odyssey through her unique style of epic torch song psychedelia. Recorded live in seven days at the infamous Candy Bomber Studios by Ingo Krauss, the album’s title reflects the personal-political themes of the songs within. The Exodus Suite was released on 20th May 2016.
