One of the founding members of the Fort Myers ACMA (Americana Community Music Association), Ray began playing guitar during the late '60s Folk scene. With the support and inspiration of fellow local and touring musicians, he began writing and playing in earnest in 2010. Traveling a long road in a short time, his music encompasses many genres, including Americana, Folk, Blues, ballads, and a little bit of Country. His storytelling style takes the listener to another place in time, his music and lyrics bringing evocative insights into the many sides of life. Ray is also a singer/songwriter’s song-singer. That is, he does interpretive covers of great originals by other talented singer/songwriters using his own creative touch. His inventive fingerstyle guitar is uniquely diverse and easy-on-the-ears. Ray’s recently released album, “How Much Time,” has received glowing reviews stateside and overseas.
