Elijah Ray

Elijah Ray

Elijah is not (yet) a resident of the Byron Bay area, but as a recent frequent visitor who seems to have a mutual love affair with the local community, we feel it is appropriate to include him in ByronNow. Catch one of his local gigs if you can, we promise it will be an awesome experience! – NEXT LOCAL GIG is Friday the 28th of April at Mullum Civic Hall. Checkout the FB Event page here

The following is from his FB page About section.

__________

A prodigious composer, singer, multi-instrumentalist, recording artist and spiritual teacher, Elijah Ray is known for his pioneering heart and transformational music that crosses a wide scope of genres…from funky, danceable tunes and soul-moving ballads, to sound healing and emotionally evocative soundtracks. His shining presence, gritty soul, and message of love invite the listener into an experience of what it is to be an 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 has also mastered the art of solo touring–a troubadour with his guitar, vocal repertoire of percussion, horns, and bass, and a loop pedal, crafting everything from hip-hop to pop to soul.

Over the past 13 years, Elijah has played and collaborated with countless acclaimed artists and musicians. A few of which he’s shared the stage with are: Jesse Carmichael (Maroon 5) Graham Nash, Andre Manga (Paul Simon) Ben Stiller, Donovon Frankenreiter, G Love, Brett Dennon, Bushwalla, the Luminaries, Tina Malia, Youssouphe Sidibe, Tubby Love, Jay ‘Bird” Koder, Michael Ruff, and many more.

Elijah has been featured in documentaries such as 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 community, www.bandoflight.ning, and plans to continue touring internationally, offering full scale concerts, sound healing sessions and workshops, soul coaching programs, and community events the world over.

The third sonic prayer from #ComePassion is entitled “I Can Change”. 🎶🙏🏽🎶 This song seemed to bloom effortlessly in the wake of “Man in the Mirror” and in many ways, it is the answer to THE CALL. ( #makethatchange )
Ahhh...but one quickly realizes, that choosing to make real change in your Self means, like 🐛the caterpillar, we must die to our old form, and go into the chrysalis, in order for a true transformation to occur. 🦋 “I Can Change” is the moment in the story when the choice is made. 🙌🏽 You can enjoy a fresh listen to it in all its 6/8 glory on every music platform, or click the link in my bio to get transported directly to the Spotify “Come Passion” playlist where these new songs are being birthed one at a time...with great love and care during this time of individual and collective transformation. 🙏🏽 Love you Family. ~Elijah ❤️#thisis #lifeinthebandoflight #Icanchange #trackthree #deep #soul #listen #withheadphones #bekind #bereal

The second sonic prayer from
Come Passion is: “Man in the Mirror.”

👁💫👁

I remember the exact moment the vision of “Come Passion” really landed...and I felt like I could hear all the songs and see the project as a whole.

The first thing I did was reach out to Henry at @sonicvistastudios and say “Bro! It’s time to record Ray 2!”

The conversation that followed would change the course of history... at one point he said:

“Elijah we already know whatever you create is going to be epic. The songs are epic. But here’s the thing: You need to do ONE COVER SONG for this project. Think about it...It needs to be a song that hasn’t really been covered before, a song that can connect to the hearts of the people.”

I never thought of releasing a cover before, but
I thought “hey I might know what song it is!” 😃

I had just started performing “Don’t Give Up” by Peter Gabriel at some of the my live shows, and told Henry that I felt that song could be the one. In response, Henry simply said “Cool, yeah that could be it... keep listening.”

So in the weeks that followed....I listened. 🧐

And what unfolded next was the stuff of legend. Synchronicities and signs began to come at me in more ways than I could ever write about here...it was as if every particle of the universe - and MJ himself - was trying to get my attention and tell me to sing this song.

I didn’t want to see it at first. 🙈

Have you ever felt like you KNEW you had to do something but you have all this resistance to it?

Well that was the feeling I had when I realized I had to sing MITM. I just didn’t feel worthy! It was way too sacred of a song to touch.

But the signs continued...

I’ll write more about the events that happened behind the scenes some day.

For now, I just want to share how grateful I am for what we created with this song, for the angels who came into my life to support this vision, for @cinnamondenise and the Maharishi Institute Choir of Johannesburg I got to work with on the vocals! For @warwicksaint for capturing this epic shot for the cover, and for MJ, for being one of the best that ever was.

💫Go have a fresh listen on Spotify or the platform of your choice, and share the love!

Aahh Michael.🙏 Yes a big part of his soul still plays in our hearts....forever ❣️ You totally did his legacy justice Elijah Ray and the Band of Light Blessings🥰

The first sonic prayer from the #ComePassion project, is entitled “Getting Over Now”.

I WAS ON MY KNEES in tears when I first heard the whispers of this melody in my head.

I remember distinctly the 12-part harmony which I immediately recorded with 24 voices in stereo, not more than an hour after first hearing the melody.

It was a pretty seamless transmission.

I was having one of those moments where I had just reached the end of my rope spiritually, creatively, emotionally. I was lost, and through this song, I was found. 🙏🏽

Felt like the perfect tune to open the album with 😌

You can have a fresh listen to it on all music platforms and watch the music video on my YouTube channel 💫🥰

Tell me loves, What does this song mean to you?
Would love to hear your experience of it in the comments 🙌🏽😌🎶

Nap! 💤 😴 My Avatar.

If he really wanted to be with you, he wouldn't confuse you. Real men know who and what they want and go for it. Weak men will ask you to lead them through the darkness, then let go of your hand when they find the light. Don't waste your time on a man who hasn't decided what he wants, its draining and unnecessary stress.

Aloha Fam!! Have you checked out this collab I did with @donnyarcade yet!? 🎵🔥🎵#unconditionallove #thisis #lifeinthebandoflight #elijahray
