These pictures were taken when Ray opened for Ane Brun at Lincoln Hall on May 22, 2012--the last day of the North American tour. Ray played the tour with herself on guitar and vocals and a drummer. It was very stripped down! It is also a testament to her talent that it worked.
How does she take a song with a sort of loungey-electronic vibe and pull it off with just her and a guitar? I do not know but she does. She also did a Mudhoney cover, which earns bonus points.
For one while there is a certain "nostalgia" vibe in the music I am not entirely sure it is for a time or place that ever, in fact, existed. She is an excellent vocalist and guitarist and has a definite presence on stage.
