ABOUT


ABOUT


“Raleigh is a versatile and soulful singer with a captivating stage presence. Her powerful vocal ability helps her cross genres with ease”
– Serge Carnovale, Artist Director, Paris Cat Melbourne

Showcasing a magnificent voice, that draws on a background of singing and composing in a diverse range of styles, Raleigh Williams is fast becoming one of Melbourne’s most respected vocalists.

Years of experience performing both in Australia and internationally (Italy, Turkey, France), as well as studying with some of the world’s finest vocal coaches, has delivered Williams a standing reputation as one of Melbourne’s best session singers, featuring in genres as diverse as world music, urban, country, jazz, pop and soul.

The ever consummate performer, Williams’ voice has been compared vocally to the likes of Katie Noonan, Tina Arena, Bonnie Raitt - demonstrating Raleigh’s formidable vocal ability and expansive range.

Most recently, Raleigh has launched her original project RALEIGH, exploring original material and fresh interpretations of much-loved existing songs, and her french project La Nuit Blanche - having performed to sold out audiences all over Melbourne (Northcote Social ClubThe Paris Cat, Brunswick Music Festival, Stonnington Jazz Festival). A regular face on the Melbourne music scene, she also cameos in the Yarra Banks Band, Moreland City Soul Revue, and girl-power #Squadgoals with Jude Perl and Lisa Crawley.

Raleigh also sings in world-music outfit Amanaska, the brainchild of pianist Simon Lewis. Amanaska also tours locally and nationally in schools working with Musica Viva Australia creating an exciting new music-in-schools program using multimedia and cross-cultural elements in the ensemble.
