With style and grace, Rita Ray invites you into her personal space. Enjoy a journey orchestrated by the crown jewel of Estonian R&B and soul. With cinematic string arrangements and vintage instrumentation – the sophmore album "A Life of Its Own" is the lovechild of a lifelong affair with music by Miss Ray and her first-class band. 

Since her début "Old Love Will Rust" in 2019, Rita Ray has enjoyed a steady rise on the contemporary soul scene. Her songwriting, voice and grand productions in studio as well as live setting are a thing of beauty. While spurring comparisons to the likes of Aretha Franklin, Bill Withers and Duffy, one can safely say she's found her unique aesthetic. The small-town damsel's got a way to make you feel joy and pain. It was recognized by the Estonian Jazz Awards, handing over the "Young Jazz Talent of the Year" accolade to Rita in 2021.
