"The Outer London Dickens-obsessed singer proving to be one of 2016’s most unusual success stories." - Wonderland Magazine

"...soulful and honest R&B that you won’t be able to get out of your head." - Dazed & Confused

"Ray BLK documents London life with both poetic and documentary-like skills. Her rich, soulful voice hints at U.S. influences, but when she sings Meet me at Morley's [south London chicken joint] there’s no mistaking where she’s from" - The FADER  ("Top U.K. Artists You Need To Add To Your R&B Playlist")

"While her vocals are reminiscent of '90s R&B or soul, her lyrics draw from the harsh realities of street life in London, as exemplified from her currently most well-known track "My Hood," which features UK Grime superstar Stormzy."  - HypeTrak ("13 Rising Female Artists You Should Know")

"Cracking the American music scene is no easy task, but with this dreamy and chill R&B track, it looks like this Londoner is on her way to doing just that." - Nylon ("Chill Out")

"BRB just chilling out for the whole of October with this smooth sound." BuzzFeed (Top Songs Of October - "Chill Out")

"Very good indeed." - The Guardian ("My Hood" Track Of The Week)

About RAY BLK:
Recently helmed by both The FADER and Complex as one of the U.K.’s biggest rising R&B artists, Ray BLK has quickly become one of the most promising and exciting new acts in the musical landscape today. The 22 year old singer / songwriter grew up in London’s south side and sites artists such as Lauryn Hill, Amy Winehouse, Biggie Smalls and Lil Kim as inspiration for her smooth vocal deliveries and razor-sharp story telling. Her music infuses soulful sounds with a hip-hop edge and asserts that her primary focuses are lyrics and storytelling. Delivering the brash honesty of rap music, with her unique blend of soul and R&B spirit, Ray BLK weaves between genre boundaries borrowing the elements she requires to reach her goals of connecting her powerful stories with her fans. Since releasing “50/50,” the first track off of Durt, at the end of 2015, Ray BLK has quickly found herself at the center of a new school of rising musicians. Her track “My Hood” featuring Grime star Stormzy only further solidified her assent, and has since received acclaim from the likes of BBC Radio 1, The Guardian, Dazed and Confused, i-D, Wonderland, Clash, Nylon, BuzzFeed, Hyepbeat, Noisey and more. Most recently, Ray BLK made her world-wide television debut with a rousing performance of “My Hood” on Later…With Jools Holland. To watch the performance, click here.
