The Universe Featuring Ray is an indie rock creation by Ray Syd Stern, a multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter and producer based in London, Ontario. With an inventive personality, Ray creates catchy songs that are soulful and poetic. Glimmering ballads that discuss love, life, and mental health, pain and joys, all conveyed in whimsical and vocally interesting ways. Ray does not shy from serious topics with layered meaning. Keeping busy writing and recording her first full length album as The Universe Featuring Ray, she has now written and produced 11 original and catchy tracks, ranging from raw and real to fun and frivolous like life itself. As a naturally expressive artist, Ray uses her music as an outlet to create visual art like her wacky light up stage props, promotional art backpacks, and even all of her clay merch is totally unique and made by her own hands. Face paint, handmade outfits and black light art combined with Ray’s theatrical performance approach and wide vocal range creates a truly unique live experience.
