OPHELIA RAY MAKES HER SOLO DEBUT WITH 1980s INSPIRED ROCK  TRACK ‘UNNATURAL LOVING’ .

RELEASE ON VALENTINE’S DAY- 14.02.2023

London-based rock singer/songwriter, Ophelia Ray, makes her solo debut with an  evocatively retro, yet distinctively fresh female rock anthem. Despite being classically  trained, Ophelia’s voice has been noted for its raw edge, having been previously described 

by BBC Radio as having a truly unique and powerful tone with similarities to Stevie Nicks,  Patti Smith, Siouxie Sioux and Kate Bush. 

Whilst possessing a real love and reverence for the retro Queens of Rock, Ophelia also  draws upon a profound interest in mythology and mysticism- as well as a contrasting  appreciation for Gaelic folklore and music. This lends a subtle ethereal and poetic  undercurrent to Ophelia’s otherwise boldly rebellious style of writing and performance. The  result is a deeply original yet nostalgic brand of sultry rock’n’roll with femme-fatale delivery. 

Ophelia’s writing is wholly autobiographical yet steeped in metaphor. She has previously  received high praise for her lyrical prowess and unusual melodic phrasing, concerning the  topics of unrequited love, romantic betrayal and feminine empowerment- expressed  through an otherworldly and darkly intriguing lens. As well as being a keen writer, Ophelia is  also a professional fashion model, designer and illustration artist. All her releases are  accompanied by high-drama photoshoots and detailed hand-drawn artworks in an elaborate  gothic/folklore style. For this artist, the audio and the visual arts are very much intertwined. 

Ophelia’s aim for this release is to honour her influences in the world of classic rock’n’roll,  but to do so with a radically contemporary originality. In 2023 you can expect to see her  performing live across London with a full band, culminating in an end of year album release.
