Samantha Ray Marshall

09/12/1983

Sammy Ray is a musician from Wisconsin.  Although she is known for her powerful voice and was nominated vocalist of the year in 2017, 2019, & 2020 by the Wisconsin Area Music Industry, she was a drummer most of her life.  Sammy went to the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee for Music Education - Finger-style guitar. 

Although she is recognized for her country music she is  a HUGE fan of progressive rock/metal bands such as Opeth, Pantera, Tool, & Steven Wilson. 

"I don't make one 'type' of music ONLY.  I don't like to be put in a box.  Sometimes I fell like writing a techno tune, sometimes a boot stompin country tune, sometimes an acoustic jam with no words...  And with my music, - that's what you'll find. A little bit of everything." 

When she's not on stage she is kayaking, hiking the AIT, spending time with family, and creating original spray paint art.

 

Sammy is currently active in her solo career as well as in 90's AF, Bound for Branson, American Tailgate, and still a member with Lunacy(whom is currently taking a year break).
