Ray Nelson

Independent musician, composer and producer of original instrumental material.

Ray Nelson had an early introduction to music, learning the piano throughout his early years.

It was this, along with playing bass and keyboards in various local bands, a healthy diet of music, 'The Old Grey Whistle Test’ and technological developments, that helped Ray to eventually forge his own musical path through to composition and recording.

Today Ray Nelson continues to work as a composer and producer from his home studio in Lincolnshire UK, producing under his own label The O Studio.

With various circumstances leading to working in isolation, Ray produces electronic instrumental music that is an alternative blend of progressive rock, pop, electronic, classical and ambient. Encompassing in their soundscapes, rhythms and melodic flow - intelligent, imaginative, thought-provoking, creating a place where music meets science and art, where the listener is immersed in sound and story.

As Nelson himself puts it, “all my work is conceptual...I write concept albums. As everything is inextricably linked, I can’t write any other way...I wouldn’t want to. There are connections between all of us and everything we do, which also affects other living things as well as the planet. We, in turn are affected by our solar system and who knows what else. In this sense, I feel that I write about the big things in life...large themes. Hopefully, there are like-minded people out there that appreciate these concepts and ‘get’ the instrumental music I create.”

Following on from his first solo album ‘Probability Wave’ in 2014, Ray went on to produce again with ‘Of Stars’ in 2016 and again in 2017 with ‘Empire’.

Ray is currently working on his fourth album ‘Music for Film’.
