Raymond Douglas Davies, CBE (born 21 June 1944 at Fortis Green, London) is an influential English rock musician, best known as lead singer-songwriter for The Kinks - one of the most prolific and long-lived British Invasion bands - which he led with his younger brother, Dave. He has also acted, directed and produced shows for theatre and television.

Since the demise of the Kinks in the mid-90s Ray Davies has embarked on a solo career. His February 2006 release Other People's Lives was his first top 40 hit in UK since the 1960s, when he worked with the Kinks. His second solo album, Working Man's Café was released in October 2007.
