Ray Wilko is a well-reputated composer, singer and guitarist/multi-instrumentalist from Bern, Switzerland.
His career started in 1996 with the release of the debut album «Subzero» and his first indie hit in his home country with the opening song «What's The Deal, Kim?». Since then, Ray Wilko released four more well acclaimed albums and he quickly became a darling to critics – and to those who cared about indie rock in Switzerland.
Wilkos songwriting basically stands in the tradition of the three-minute pop song. But he usually disrupts this format with either a mixture of additional styles (from garage, alternative or indie to punk or even folk and country) or at least with arrangement feints that make most of his songs unpredictable and therefore surprising.
On most of his albums, singer and multi-instrumentalist Ray Wilko played the majority of what you can hear (basically drums, bass & guitars plus some keys) by himself, besides producing or co-producing the albums.
