Ray’s love of music began at 11, singing along to radio hits such as "Just the Two of Us" and "Sara Smile". After moving to the SF Bay Area, he sang tenor for 20-years with Conspiracy of Beards, a 30-men choir performing new arrangements of Leonard Cohen songs.

During live shows, Ray loves connecting to the crowd, sharing his deep passion and respect for R&B and Soul.
