Your Loving Arms




Dubbed the “queen of electronic soul,” Billie Ray Martin first came to prominence as a guest with S-Express before leading the acclaimed deep house act Electribe 101, producing & performing on the classic "Talking With Myself."


Bursting onto the house scene, Billie continued exploring fusions of electronic music, pop and soul and shortly after releasing “Persuasion” with Spooky and the beautiful “Four Ambient Tales” with The Grid.

Billie found herself with a worldwide number 1 hit single with “Your Loving Arms,” now considered one of the all-time classics of dance music. 

Club anthems "Running Around Town" & "Imitation of Life" shortly followed with a further a massive hit in the UK and US dance charts with 2008’s "Undisco Me."

In 2010, her take on Cabaret Voltaire’s classic album The Crackdown reinforced her position as an artist who appeals to both cool magazines as well as the pop mainstream achieving ‘Song of the Day’ status on Popjustice. 

2011 saw her release the solo single “Sweet Suburban Disco,” with mixes from Vince Clarke of Yazoo & Erasure fame, and the collaborative “Sold Life” EP with Hard Ton, which both attracted support from DJs Black Strobe, John Digweed, Laurent Garnier and Kim Ann Foxman (Hercules and Love Affair) alike. 

The last few years have seen collaborations & new projects aplenty with releases as The Opiates, Terranova and Hyper Lust accumulating in a nomination for most influential woman by ID Magazine.

Having previously worked with a range of genres including house, disco and pop, Billie Ray’s new sound is the culmination of a decade-long creative urge to return to soul, with her last album "The Soul Tapes"  further emphasizing her eclectic, cross-genre appeal. 

Billie Ray Martin is now availabel for live shows & DJ sets.
