Hey folks,

I hope this finds you extra fine and deep in the groove…!

The key to unlocking this one song I’ve been trying to write has been eluding me for months now, keeping me up at night and distracting me pretty much through the whole day. I guess it really wants to come out but it’s not making it easy. This  kind of song usually winds up being pretty good but it can fool you into thinking about letting it go, which I so far have refused to do. I keep walking around the house pretending to be doing something else but the dogone thing is taking up all the real estate in my head…!

I’ve been in the studio some with my favorite cats, Gurf Morlix and G. Arsenio…have five tracks cooking so far, two of which I have mixed already for the purpose of making videos to promo the album well before it is released. I’ll be playing some of these songs at my upcoming shows at the end of this week…road testing…!

So come say hey at Strange Brew here in Austin, at the Kerrville Folk Festival or in Hickory, NC..look forward to seeing you…!

What’s Really Going On In Ray’s Head You Ask?  Here’s His Answer…

I have a bit of a power struggle going on here out in the yard of our house with squirrels who seem to be of the opinion that the bird feeders are for them. I tell you these guys do not take no for an answer and they are real good at finding ways around the obstacles we’ve put up so far…got to hand it to them for being fearless when it comes to jumping onto something from pretty far, not knowing how it will work out for them…! I guess I’d be the same if I was one of them…!
