Sue Ray

Sue Ray was coining the Americana genre fifteen years ago when she first stepped on stage. The multi-award-winning singer/songwriter captivates audiences with her haunting and emotionally charged lyrics, considered compositions and really hits them in the sweet spot with her smoky, molasses-rich voice. Following a “gap” year or two in Nashville where she worked alongside industry greats and connected into the scene, gigging and writing, she is back in Australia releasing her latest album Live at the Junk Bar.

Sue Ray’s album “Red Roses” has aired regularly Australia wide on many Indigenous and community radio stations and has been awarded “Album Of The Week” on Radio Larrakia 94.5FM in Darwin and on Radio Goolarri 99.7FM in Broome.

Tracks from “Red Roses” have been in the Top 5 of the AMRAP’s AIRIT charts twice in 2013 and three songs off the album made it onto four episodes of the Australian TV drama “Time Of Our Lives” – staring Claudia Karvan, airing on ABC in June 2013.

NITV “On The Road” premiered a one-hour special on Sue Ray, airing monthly on SBS, as part of the Saltwater Freshwater Festival 2013.
