An Inside Look.

Cloud Ray is a Jamaican American Hip-Hop, Pop, and EDM recording artist and producer who has set the music world alight with his versatility and musical dexterity. A gifted producer with scintillating bars and immaculate wordplay, Cloud Ray uses music to tell a heartfelt story about his life and share his experiences with listeners. Born in Manhattan, New York, and raised in Old Bridge, New Jersey, Cloud Ray is breaking new ground and blurring the lines between genres by creating authentic music to inspire and convey real messages and emotions. 

Cloud Ray's listeners describe his music as charismatic, with a melodic style that is intricate and unique but still accessible to people from all walks of life. Having been introduced to a wide range of music by his mother, he developed an eclectic palette of sounds from genres such as RnB, Pop, Hip-Hop, Classical, Reggae, and even Country. Cloud Ray is inspired by music icons such as Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, The Black Eyed Peas, and J. Cole. He has set himself up to become one of this generation's most memorable producers and artists by turning pain into purpose and creating timeless music that is meaningful on a platform for his reflective thoughts. 

Cloud Ray has a captivating and witty flow sprinkled with nostalgic nuances and has already begun his journey toward becoming a world-renowned name with the release of his debut EP “Urban City Elegance,” which has garnered steady traction, firmly cementing him at the forefront of the new era of producers and artists who see beyond the confines of genre. Cloud Ray has already had multiple notable performances at venues such as New York City’s legendary SOBs, also known as Sounds of Brazil, The Franklin Theatre in Franklin, Tennessee, and Pegasus Lounge in Tampa, Florida. He was also briefly featured in an episode of VH1's Love and Hip Hop: New York as the Recording Engineer for Remy Ma and Papoose.

Cloud Ray's music blends an exotic fusion of Hip Hop culture into Mainstream Pop with occasional seasonings of EDM and House. His 2022 debut release, “Urban City Elegance,” was produced in collaboration with DJ and 2x Platinum Producer Treadway. Since its release in August 2022, the EP has grown to garner over 1,000,000 streams worldwide. Throughout the EP, Cloud Ray delivers monumental emotions plastered against hard-hitting drums and fast-paced synth arpeggios while maintaining a groovy rhythm. There is no doubt that Cloud Ray is poised to change the industry's status quo.

 

Cloud Ray set the Spring of 2023 ablaze as he set out further to expand his music on five back-to-back tours hitting major cities such as New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Miami, Dallas, and New Orleans. In July 2023, while still on tour, Cloud Ray released his latest single, “Burn It Down,” a summer anthem just in time for the global carnival season and massive summer parties. You can dance to this dope vibe alone in your room or at your backyard family barbecue. It’s a great pairing of Caribbean rhythms and lewd lyrics that we can come to expect from a mainstream Soca banger. With Cloud Ray consistently dropping hits, you can be sure to expect more music drops from him.
