You can find out more about the album here. The short story is that my friend Ray, who was really enthusiastic about these songs, passed away before I was able to finish the album. I miss him dearly, and am donating 1/3 of any earnings from this album to the Diabetes Association in his memory.
The whole album – from the title to the front cover (Ray jamming on a bass in my basement studio) to the Chucks (an integral part of Ray’s wardrobe) – is a tribute to his passion for music and his unwavering, brotherly, and occasionally pain-in-the-ass friendship.
Hopefully I’ll be more attentive here on my slightly refreshed website and share more about the songs and other entertaining Rayray anecdotes. Please stay tuned.
