Bay Rays started as 3 best friends from Tunbridge Wells, Kent. Harry Nicoll, Maxwell Oakley and Anthus Davis.
The trio formed in 2015 when they received a heavy following in their local area. Following the success of their debut single ’Satisfaction’ the band went on to headline Glastonbury’s BBC Introducing Stage in 2016, as well as heading out on numerous UK tours, supporting bands such as Kent friends, Slaves, Hidden Charms, Estrons and Ten Fe. Their latest EP, 'Darkness and Doubt’ was released in August 2018 and was produced by good friend Drew Bang, who had previously worked with Royal Blood and U2. Collaborating with him bought a fresh perspective and a refined sound. The singles, Begin Again, Can’t Let Go and The Chamber, were soon picked up by Huw Stephens and Annie Mac at BBC Radio One, Steve Lamacq at BBC 6 Music, John Kennedy and Felix White at XFM.
The band will be playing numerous shows for the rest of 2018 with intermittent stops to the studio to start laying down their next ideas.
