The New RecordI have been in the studio working on the new record. I have two songs pretty much done, and have some others on the stove top adding spices and other secret ingredients. I’m still writing as I go, and looking for a good country song or two to cover in my own way. Making a record is very intense workthat keeps me up at all hours with lyrics shifting and changing in my head and I love every bit of it…!!
What is Ray Really Thinkin’?It’s still nice and cool here in Austin, and we have a load of birds hanging around the yard singing their oh so soulful songs…! Yesterday I spied two very cool large water birds hunting in the marsh close by, and one was teaching it’s young how to do it…!
Help Us Find Some Cool Merch!
We are working on new ideas for merchandise and promotion for Ray’s upcoming record release.  We would love to hear what you think would be cool merchandise to offer.  There’s always t-shirts but we want to know what other merch y’all would be interested in seeing.  Let us know!
