vill-ree

Vilray (vill-ree) is a composer and performer from Brooklyn. He sings and plays guitar in NYC and around the world. 

His duo with Rachael Price (of Lake Street Dive) is called Rachael & Vilray. Their close harmonies sung into a shared microphone turn venues of all sizes into intimate parlor concerts. They’ve performed at the Newport Folk Festival and Lincoln Center’s Appel Room, among other legendary stages, and their self-titled album is out now on Nonesuch Records.

Vilray is available for session work, events both public and private, and accepts commissions to compose original music for film, commercials, theatre, weddings or special occasions. Get in touch.

Fond of the witty pop standards of the 1930s and 1940s...Vilray can write fluently and cleverly in that vintage style.
