QUEEN ALONE OUT NOW ON BIG CROWN RECORDS
“Lady Wray brings sultry soul on Queen Alone… an organic set that takes listeners back to the roots of R&B, from Etta James and James Brown to Michael Jackson”
“With a production team consisting of two seasoned retro-soul veterans, Nicole Wray’s solo act shepherds ’60s and ’70s R&B styles into the present… a touch of the new blended with the old”
– NPR Music
New York, NY (April 26, 2017) — Lady Wray released her long-awaited comeback LP, Queen Alone at the end fo the last year on Big Crown Records and the Leon Michels and Tommy Brenneck produced album’s fresh spin on classic R&B and pop and soulful storytelling earned extensive critical acclaim. The accolades continue as Essence recently spoke to Nicole Wray about the album and premiered the new video for “Underneath My Feet“.
Chasing down a cheating man never looked or sounded as good as Lady Wray makes it in “Underneath My Feet”. Breaking between black and white and color imaging, Wray sings over as her running man scatters through the streets…. That is, until she catches him.
“Underneath My Feet” blends glam rock drums and guitar stabs that Nicole takes to like a fish to water. A self proclaimed voodoo woman, putting a spell on the listener, warning all of her unbridled power, is now available on Queen Alone and limited edition 7″ vinyl via Big Crown Records.

Lady Wray has everything you’d want in a singer: an infectious Jackson-5-family-member flare, a range like Aretha’s and a church upbringing that brings an untouchable purity to her vocals. Discovered by Missy Elliot at age 16, the singer-songwriter possesses a rich history in the business, one that’s equally textured by struggle and success.
