Welcome to Episode 56 of Intuitive Queens podcast from your Intuition Queen.
My name is Mara and I have created this podcast to inspire you with the stories of my guests and how they overcame fears, limiting beliefs, tragedies and obstacles and managed to find their purpose following their intuition.
My hope is that you will resonate with one or all of them and their story will get you to take-action to change your life, and finally go after your dreams.
In today’s episode I am interviewing Lindsey Ray, aka Rayelle, aka Olly Anna, American singer, songwriter and Producer.
Lindsey always knew she wanted to be a singer and was lucky to have a family and community to support her in making her dream come true.
When she was in her 20ies she was discovered on My Space and invited to New York to sign a deal with a major record company but just as she approached New York she fell into tears because something inside of her told her that thatwas not what she wanted, the type of person she would had to be was not aligned to who she was and she turned back.
She was told she had blew her only shot to become successful.
Lindsey started over and went on singing at weddings but when her dad passed away, she packed her stuff and moved to LA and that’s where her life changed and her career as a singer, songwriter and producer started.
Following her intuition is something that Lindsey talks about often during the interview and again it comes back strongly when she talks about how she is a singer.
Her singing career starts as herself, Lindsey Ray but as she says, she was getting bored and created other two personas, Rayelle and Olly Anna.
With them she has different styles but they all represent authentic parts of herself where she can feel different, from badass to playful to more soulful.
Her music is empowering, badass, positive, soulful and dreamy.
This is something that singers are never able to do and they combine different styles in one persona but again, for Lindsay that was just something she felt called to do and that felt right, so she went for it.
We talked about following her intuition, her creative process, the challenges of trusting yourself when you are starting out and you are surrounded by expert that tells you what to do but that doesn’t feel right.
We talked about breaking through the limitations that other people put on ourselves and the importance to take chances to make our dreams come true.
We also talked about spirituality and how Lindsay feels that her music is a message she channels to inspire and empower women.
Lindsey, Rayelle and Olly Anna’s songs have all become successful, in fact you can find them as soundtracks in a long list of TV programmes, movies and commercials available on her website.
