Ayla Ray is a group formed of Alaskan hometown friends by singer/songwriter Sam Tenhoff and bassist/producer Raven Liss. The duo have been playing together since meeting in elementary school, developing a sound over the years that leans the group heavily into rock with undertones of electronic, soul, and R&B. 

With a collaboration of artful stage props, lighting, and a high energy live performance, Ayla Ray brings a full experience to the dance floor and strives to bend genre in and out of the studio.


"Liquor Witch is a head-swaying lament that conjures up and releases repressed emotions from deep within the modern psyche with an uplifting chorus that brings light in the darkness. Bewitching storytelling."

“Liquor Witch debuted today on YouTube and it's a full of life video that had us bumping right out of our seats within 10 seconds of watching!"

- Buzz Music LA

"What you have now is a young band with musical maturity well beyond their years who promises to deliver some of the most diverse metal in your ever-growing musical collection for a long time to come."

"Ayla Ray released a catchy new record today and upon hearing it for the first time we were immediately hooked. Not only is this release a gem for any follower of rock releases, but because Ayla Ray is focusing more on their vocal delivery and vocal techniques to blend something new and exciting."
