BIO
ARay was born in Dayton Ohio and it wasn't long after relocating near Baltimore
with his family the artist we now know began to cut his teeth in music at an early age
of 13 playing music anywhere and everywhere he could.

Band's like Grand Funk,  Aerosmith, Ted Nugent to name a few were on the palate
even at an early age, as well as more progressive music like Kansas, Zappa, and
Crack the Sky that influenced the deeper side of of his roots in music and created the
the style of music ARay writes today.

Although instrumentals, Blues and Rock/Metal tunes have all been part of his 180
song catalogue of music over the last few years, it all seems to come back where it
began for most rockers, the Blues...

ARay's style in his solo music is a punchy breed of down and dirty music formed with
a mix of ZZ Top, BlackFoot and classic Blues, but there's twist to this story. ARay's
solo's on his recordings are a mix of Van Halen, Dream Theatre, Joe Satriani and
Steve Vai all rolled up into one big explosion of style, made all his own.

Music
"With some big things on the horizon, there's no time like now to make it happen."
CDBaby music is now online, along with the much aniticipated
video / instrumental tracks ARay proudly displays the products from his
CLAYTON USA endorsement. "Without the PickTac product the techniques
used in ADRENALINE RAIN simply wouldn't work." ARay ~2014
Upcoming NAMM event news for ARay released soon.

“Happy New Year from everyone at The Boneyard!! GREAT PARTY last night. If you missed it, sorry but it was the BEST NEW YEARS PARTY in MONROE... HOUSE OF HAIR
 rocked the house like never before. We had so many customers say they really had a great time and loved the place. A lot of new faces that had never seen the place,
and they were amazed!! If you haven't checked us out, you will be SURPRISED. Thanks to ALL our CUSTOMERS, if it wasn't for YOU, The Boneyard Tavern would not be
such a BIG SUCCESS! Thanks again, and Happy 2013 ~the Boneyard Tavern”

“First band up was Hair Nation, a cover band based out of Charlotte. These guys were pretty good, and had us singing along with classics such as “18 and Life”,
“Sweet Child o’Mine”, and one of the best covers of “The Flame” that I’ve ever heard, even though I don’t consider Cheap Trick to be metal. They ran through
a set that lasted roughly an hour or so. Of course, it’s not a Winger show without some sort of equipment failure. We learned later, via Hair Nation’s Facebook page,
 that Kip Winger had an issue with his bass. I know something of Charlotte and the area, but be darned if I could tell you where a guitar parts supply store would be
 open, especially one at almost 10 PM! The guitarist for Hair Nation – who apparently builds or modifies his own guitars – broke down one of his guitars to give to
Winger’s guitar tech to repair the bass. Good going to Hair Nation, and to Aray, the guitarist!”

“The opening act was Hair Nation. They have opened for a lot of heavy metal acts around Charlotte. This time there was a new guitar player who happened to play a
Hamer Californian Elite for a few songs. He pulled it out for the first time when they played Cheap Trick's The Flame. They played an hour. Winger came on stage at
10:32 and played until midnight. The hairspray and ripped jeans are long gone. The voice and talent are still there. Winger played like they were all having fun, not
just "putting on a show." ”
