Daughter of contemporary Christian artist Crystal Lewis, Izzi Ray has just released her sophomore CD,Make Much Of You, today. The project, being distributed by Word Records, finds Ray working with musician/producer Blaine Stark. The lead single, "Heaven Is Your Throne," co-written by Ray and Stark, is being promoted at A-Sides Radio Promotion to Christian AC-formatted stations.
"I'm excited to release this new collection of songs on Make Much Of You," Ray says. "Pride, humility, negativity, longing and, even, death are all subjects that I wrote about, which brings a more serious tone to this CD than to my debut project."
Make Much Of You follows Ray's 2012 eponymous CD, which earned the singer/songwriter accolades, including the following from New Release Tuesday: "Izzi Ray is an up and coming young artist with a new, fresh take on songwriting and melody. With a rich, warm, yet young and vibrant voice, Izzi brings a sweet and clear message of faith, hope and love in her songs."
Izzi Ray began playing guitar and writing songs at the tender age of 11. Having grown up in a family where life frequently took place on the road, Izzi became acquainted with music and touring at an early age.
Her journey of faith also began at an early age. She became well acquainted with God at the age of 5 and hasn't looked back. "I want to be a voice in my generation that stirs revival,", Izzi says. She is clearly on her way to continue the legacy of her mother while taking the reins to create a legacy of her own.
