Born outside New Hope, Pennsylvania, and calling Boulder, Colorado his home since 2000, Ramaya Soskin is most at home in a song. Beginning first at Naropa University he formed the rock & reggae trio named Specter X with Ian Hansson and Devin Liles that spent over 3 years heating up dance floors and building a loyal fanbase on the front range. While maturing as a songwriter he practiced his craft and soon started the indie alt-rock band SLOWROSA with local songstress Cate Coslor, Tres Altman, Chris Mustaine and Jeb Bows. While being managed by Brian Schwartz (Dinosaur Jr., Paper Bird, Rose Hill Drive), and supported by both Coupe Studio and What Are Records?, the band performed with acts such as Devotchka, The Fray, and The Czars at Boulder's "Fox" and "Boulder Theater". Ramaya's next project was entitled A. Ballad Nightly and included players Jess DeNicola, Jeb Bows, Jack Leahy, and Leor Manelis. It was during this incarnation that Ramaya released his 5th album of original material entitled "All In Good Time".
In 2009 Ramaya joined up with fellow Boulder songwriter (and longtime hombre) Gregory Alan Isakov. They toured as a duo (where Ramaya both accompanied Greg on guitar and vocals, and performed solo) for nearly 4 years. Tour schedules took them all over the US, Canada (Winnipeg Folk Festival), Cayamo Cruise shows, and twice to Europe; Italy, England and Scotland (w/ Chris Pureka), Germany (w/ Nathaniel Rateliff), and Holland (w/ Devotchka). As a full 6 piece band here in Boulder they sold out the Fox Theater, Chataqua Auditorium, Gothic Theater (w/ Nathaniel Rateliff) and Redrocks (with Brandi Carlile).
In 2010 Ramaya accompanied by vocalist Dana Raabe, toured with friend and hero songsmith Chris Pureka in support of her album "How I Learned To See In The Dark".
