Boo Ray’s pure Muscle Shoals Southern country rock sound will draw you in, his voice will have you hanging on every lyric and his songs will stick with you like a good friend. He is a Southern troubadour who forged and honed his sound playing South Georgia honky-tonks, Gulf Coast jukes, Nashville nightclubs, and Los Angeles songwriter joints. Hailing from the mountains of Western North Carolina, he now spends his time between Nashville, Los Angeles, and Athens, Georgia.
Americana Outlaw, Boo Ray on his new album, “The title track, “Sea Of Lights,” comes from my heart, it’s important to me. I’ve been working with the artists I recorded the album with for ten years, doing one-offs and single-track jobs. There is a special dynamic to creating music with great friends. We cut ten songs in two days, live-to-tape, everyone playing together in one room with sound baffles and Persian rugs as isolation for this new album. Had a damned ball doing it! I’m not writing to impress the aficionados or experts. It’s a trucker album, it’s a party album, and for listening to while playing cards and on your road trips.” "Sea of Lights" Americana Music chart Top 40.
Boo Ray is currently working on a singles project. His two new releases are duets; “Islands In The Stream” cover with Lilly Winwood and “All Strung Out Like Christmas Lights” original with Elizabeth Cook.
