What About the Girl

by Waking Aurora

At the 2010 Grammy Awards, Sisters Jennifer & Sarah Ray (then known as the NYC duo Inventing Eve) were nominated in four categories for their song “Beautiful By My Scars” (2009 CD, Stumbling Toward Destiny). Now under the management of the infamous multi-platinum British producer Robin Millar of Sade and Fine Young Cannibals, and CJ Gagne at Trifecta Music Group, this dynamic sister act is ready to launch officially, stateside! This past year has been spent in the studio together with Millar and accomplished Oasis and Noel Gallagher producer Paul Stacey. A groundbreaking new album has been written and recorded under the artistic direction and production of Millar and Stacey. This album will reveal a more organic, socially-aware, vulnerable and grown-up side of this duo - a true reflection of their journey from Inventing Eve to Waking Aurora.

Album Notes
The signature sound of Waking Aurora was born in the rear seat of a hatchback family car, when the 4-year-old identical twin sisters began vocalizing the lyrics of their very first song. A decade later, Jennifer and Sarah Ray had become a recognized singer/songwriter team in their hometown of Santa Cruz, California. The twins were regularly invited to share their unique vocal stylings at local and national functions including The Special Olympics and national charitable events hosted by The Salvation Army, where the duo took the stage in front of audiences that numbered up to 5,000.

But Jen and Sarah had their eyes set on New York City and in early 2002, they made their first official appearance as the folk-rock duo Inventing Eve. After 4 years on the New York music scene, which generated a solid following and established them as a recognized name in the Big City, Inventing Eve released their self-titled debut album, Inventing Eve in late 2006. It was this album which caught the attention of players within the UK music industry. Shortly after the move to London, Inventing Eve released their their second album (2009 EP Stumbling Toward Destiny). In 2010, the sister team was nominated for the Grammy Awards in four categories, for their original song Beautiful By My Scars. With no manager, publishing company or record label behind them, their appearance on the ballot stunned many industry professionals and hence gained Inventing Eve the support of several US and UK music industry giants in the Grammy campaigns. Votes of support were cast by the likes of music legend Pat Boone, manager Jeff Robinson (Alicia Keys) and producer Michael Narada Walden (Whitney Houston).

Today, Jennifer and Sarah Ray’s songwriting repertoire includes over 100 songs which often cross stylistic boundaries, capturing the attention of listeners from varied walks of life. Fans are continually impressed with this dynamic duo’s natural ability both as accomplished and continually evolving songwriters, as well as live performers. Their engaging persona and presence on stage has helped this duo hold their own in cities such as New York and London, fearlessly billing alongside larger bands with bigger sounds, yet engrossing the crowd. It’s been a long road with a continually changing landscape, but these passionate and talented sisters are still hungry for more. Their continued drive to reach higher and farther and their thirst for “making music which has an eternal significance” still remain un-quenched.

Excellent Songwriting, Arrangement and Production
Having listened to the first albums of Waking Aurora (formerly Inventing Eve), there is so much growth in about every way possible for a musician, especially singer/songwriters. This twin duo has certainly stepped it up several notches and I think, having already been Grammy Nominee's, you will soon see them as Grammy Award winners. Great album ladies!
