Lady Wray’s newest full-length, Queen Alone is a showcase of Nicole Wray’s inarguable
vocal talent. Behind that talent is a musical force deserving of it’s own recognition. And that’s
where the spotlight shines on this release, Queen Alone Instrumentals. The record was
written and recorded in 10 days at the legendary Diamond Mine Studios, in Queens NY with
Leon Michels and Thomas Brenneck handling production.
Michels and Brenneck are both multi-instrumentalist. Leon Michels contributes his talents on
keys, guitar, sax, flute as well as drums and percussion throughout the project. Brenneck
handles guitars and bass as well as percussion. Additional contributions from Nick Movshon,
Homer Steinweiss, Dave Guy, Max Shrager, and more help to create a sonic landscape that’s
a perfect complement to Wray’s vocal prowess...and also stand as a monumental
work all its own.
Almost echoing her new record, Nicole says, “You have to go through something for it to be
real.” She has been living with one foot in fame and the other in real life. The result is clear:
she’s feeling something real in her music again. In no small part due to the incomparable
talent and musicianship assembled by Michels and Brenneck for the Queen Alone sessions.
