What would Sade, Sarah McLachlan and Tori Amos sound like if they had been raised in India?
Anjali, raised in New Delhi till the age of 10, draws on her extensive training in classical piano, Indian Hindustani classical vocal training, and occasional moonlighting as a jazz pianist to create emotional and haunting melodies. Learning piano through the British school of music since the age of 4, Anjali’s early musical foundation was later strengthened by the contrast of her Indian vocal training, enabling her to begin writing her own songs and communicating in a way words alone never can.
After performing in venues throughout Chicago and Los Angeles, Anjali began a career as an engineer, which enabled her to embrace her greatest gift to date – motherhood. She recently seized the opportunity to create a full length album of songs inspired by her experiences as a wife and mother. Her songs are sonically captivating, blending rhythms and music from east and west. Her lyrics mirror the challenges, struggles and joys we all face in our lifetime, and combine with her powerful, angelic voice to yield a soulful and honest product.

What do you expect when you hear music from a young lady who was raised in India, now lives in California and, incredibly, is also an engineer? Not one word but two: “She’s fantastic!”
By Stephen Wrench, creator/producer of the television show “Do I Have A Hit Song“, Nominating and Voting member of the Grammy’s.
“When I first heard the music of Anjali Ray I had to listen again and then again. Her vocals drew me in with a warmth that I could feel. Truly an album you can listen to over and over again and never grow tired of.”
“Anjali’s music invokes a serene spiritual joy. It fills one with peace, calm, happiness and above all, brings us face to face with Love. It is simply, beautiful.”
