SATURDAY 11th January - 11.00am - 12.30pm - Art Beat
Shannelee Ray is a quirky, pop/country/ folk singer/songwriter from Christchurch New Zealand. She started writing songs accompanied by her mother's old, rusty stringed, classical guitar at the age of 13 and since then has started nurturing and developing her talents.
Born on January 18, 1992, in Durban, South Africa, she began her journey of life. At the age of 12 Shannelee made her way over to New Zealand and began feeding her love for music and her passion of putting smiles on people's faces.
She began studying towards a Bachelor in musical arts at age 18 and is now in her third and final year.
Her music is gently formed by a collection of dreamy lyrics derived from encounters of love and life in all forms, floating melodies tied together with strings of emotion encapsulating memories and observations of life.
