Paris Ray is an up and coming singer, songwriter, and performer based on the south shore of Long Island, NY. She knew she was meant for a life in the industry very early, as a child actress with credits including iCarly, All My Children, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and 30 Rock. With her successes as a young actress and a passion for poetry and music, she tried her hand at songwriting. Paris taught herself guitar at 15 years old and never looked back.
What started out as a hobby and creative outlet soon turned into a life that she couldn’t even imagine. After working on her BFA in SUNY Purchase’s studio composition program, she returned to Long Island hungry for whatever was next for her. She built her passion into a career performing six nights a week at the most beautiful vineyards, marinas, and restaurants that the island had to offer.
Paris is a 2 time Top Ten finalist of the Grammy's Gig of a Lifetime, a four time recipient of Dan's Papers' Best of the Best award, the winner of the Gold Coast Art Center's Your Big Break Competition, and was featured on Fox 5’s NY Star of the Day. Paris has opened for Katrina of Katrina and the Waves, Jon Herrington of Steely Dan and David Crosby of Crosby, Stills & Nash, was named Best Musician 2023 & 2024 in the Dan’s Papers and Best of Long Island, and has had songs placed in national commercials.
Paris released her first full length studio album, Clementine, in February of 2023 and is blown away by the support and love she’s received on it.
