Emergence Yoga Kiama
A PRODIGIOUS VOCALIST, COMPOSER, MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST, AND RECORDING ARTIST.
Elijah is known for his pioneering heart and transformational music that crosses an insanely wide variety of genres…
from Acoustic Soul, Bumpin Funk, World Beat, Dance / Pop and Rock… to soul stirring Piano Ballads, Symphonic
Soundtracks, and Shamanic, Sound Healing environments.
His shining presence, gritty soul, and message of love invite the listener into an experience of what it is to be “in the BAND OF LIGHT’, and live a life as an embodied, awakening human. His spiritual messages of authenticity and the power of community have transformed audiences internationally, and many are calling his music the “soundtrack of the awakening.” Both mystical and raw, Elijah’s charisma and musical prowess draws his audience into life’s nectar–spiritual, sexy, sweaty, gritty, and ecstatic. Elijah has single handedly crafted a full band sound on most of his “Band of Light” albums, playing most of the instruments and arranging many of the tracks himself. He is also keen to the art of solo touring–a troubadour with his guitar, and a diverse vocal repertoire which can on the spot create percussion sounds, horn sections, and basslines, all with his voice and a loop pedal.
Over the past 13 years as a professional musician, Elijah Ray has played, collaborated and shared the stage with countless artists and amazing friends and musicians, like Bibi McGill (Beyonce’s Lead Guitarist) Jesse Carmichael (Maroon 5) Graham Nash, and most recently touring the USA Wanderlust circuit alongside Michael Franti, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Xavier Rudd and many, many more.
Elijah has been featured in documentaries such as “The Indigo Evolution”, and “Living in Light”, alongside such luminaries as Neale Donald Walsh, Dr. Matsuro Emoto, Doreen Virtue, Gangaji, Eli Jaxson-Bear and Panache Desai. He has cultivated an international online community, www.bandoflight.ning, and plans to continue touring, releasing new music and transformational media, and building conscious community.
