PREMIERE: Lauren Ray shares powerful new track ‘Man’

With her debut album on the way in the very near future, we’re hugely excited to bring you the exclusive premiere of Lauren Ray’s music video for ‘Man‘, the latest single taken from her forthcoming project.

With previous EP Paying For Love receiving a huge amount of positive words from critics and fans alike, it’s been interesting to see how Ray’s debut album would pan out and with the release of this latest single we’re certain that it’s going to be as good as we’d hoped it would.

Ray has a real knack for songwriting and ‘Man’ shows off her talents superbly. With a really soulful, almost country-like vibe about it, the track allows Ray to showcase her considerable vocal talents over an emotive piano-led instrumental, demonstrating just why she’s being talked about as a genuine artist to watch for the rest of 2016.

Growing up, Ray travelled across the globe with her family living in South Africa, Austria, and Poland before settling down in London to begin her music career, which has also led her to Los Angeles and Nashville. That would go so someway to explaining the cultured sound to her voice and the varied influences that have affected the sound of her music. With nine other tracks set to feature on her forthcoming album, you’ll be hearing a few more gems from this incredibly talented artist very soon.

Ray’s highly anticipated debut album We Will Need Courage is set to be released on 1st July and you can pre-order your copy on iTunes here.

If, like us, you’re a fan of this vocal vixen, you’ll be pleased to know that you can catch Lauren Ray at two upcoming shows this Summer. Details and ticket links for both of those shows are available here. Make sure you’re following Lauren Ray on both Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date with all the latest news and info direct from the lady herself.
