Billie Ray Martin is a female singer born in Hamburg, Germany noted for her elegant, soulful voice as much as her avant-garde persona.
She has had numerous worldwide dance music hits in various collaborations and as a solo artist. Initially a guest singer for S'Express, she went on to much greater success and prominence with the electronic/pop group Electribe 101. Although their debut album “Electribal Memories” was critically acclaimed, Electribe 101 disbanded before they could complete their second album. Their enigmatic reputation rests mostly on their signature tune, and acclaimed hit, “Talking With Myself” with its krafwerk as well as chicago house influenced production. Other hits from the album included 'tell me when the fever ended', 'you're walking' and 'inside out'. Many songs recorded for a planned second set made it onto Martin's very own solo set - these include “Hands Up & Amen” & “Running Around Town”amongst others.
