Ray Blk
Ray Blk is a 21 year old R&B singer / songwriter from South London who cites her inspirations as Lauryn Hill, Amy Winehouse, biggie smalls and Lil Kim. She infuses soulful sounds with a hip hop edge and asserts that her primary focus are lyrics while vocals are secondary. Ray hopes to bring something new to the R&B scene that the UK can call their own.

A lot of thought and passion has been put into the 'Havisham' EP. It takes inspiration from Charles Dickens’ popular novel, Great Expectations and is named after the character Miss Havisham. Miss Havisham was jilted at the altar and after her heartbreak vowed to never fall again and raised her adopted daughter, Estella to do the same and to maltreat men because they are no good. The EP follows this story. A girl, who falls in love, has her heart broken and turns into the cold hearted, wicked Havisham. This story makes the EP one filled with emotion, edge and a mix of sounds from slow neo-soul sounds to grimey up tempo tracks.
