Ella Ray is a Kingston NY-based performer who completed her debut full-length album, Hum to Your Heart, released in August of 2019. Her self-generated genre blends her background in Eastern European acapella arrangements with the beauty of Cat Power and the heartache of Mazzy Star. Her preternatural voice sings over innovative acoustic chord structure as she details her romantic and sexual trials with painful memories of her past, vocalizing a strength which is tangible in her transformative music.
Also joining today’s conversation is Ella’s biggest fan and partner, Jesse Scherer, massage therapist and super volunteer who supports organizations like the O+ Festival and Health Care is a Human Right.
Today we talked about Ella’s creative process and stepping into her own as a solo musician, healing, Jesse’s thoughts on volunteering, love, heartache, relationships, and surviving COVID.
We listened to “Bringing Myself Back Home,” “Hum to Your Heart,” “i married Columbus,” and “Do You Mind” by Ella Ray Kondrat.
Today’s show was engineered by Ian Seda of Radio Kingston.
Our show music is from Shana Falana !!!
