Hailing from Northern Ontario, Canada, Shylah Ray is a driven, passionate and charismatic artist with a unique approach to her blend of Neo-Soul, Reggae and R&B sound. Music has always been an anchor in Shylah’s life, who used this art form as therapy to help her find sanctuary in a difficult upbringing and young adult life. Years into traveling, she unintentionally relocated to California, where she joined a popular reggae band and was embraced by the Los Angeles community, offering her several music opportunities for developing her own identity as a singer/songwriter and musician. Self-taught vocally, on piano and percussion, Shylah continues working on new music while raising two children, and performs frequently at a wide variety of venues and events including the summer festival circuit and a local residency gig in her home of Ojai. Her sound is about connecting with the listeners through energy release, uplifting melodies, and emotional vocal performances that echo influential performers the likes of Erykah Badu or India Arie, a couple of her most influential female artists.
