URBAN/R&B: Funk, POP: Quirky
Bray explodes into the world of pop music with infectious grooves, irresistable magnetism, and sheer romantic abandon. A consumate songwriter and performer, his daring yet sensual work brings to mind diverse influences such as Michael Jackson and David Bowie, and contemporaries like Maxwell and Pink. An avid student of the great r&b composers, especially Prince and Stevie Wonder, Bray extends the tradition - writing, producing, and playing nearly every instrument on his recordings.
Lyrically, Bray focuses on the subtleties of life & love with a mix of sincerity & whimsicality: "life is an independent film/the news is but a talk show/commercials are the real thing/succes is another condo."
Bray and his band have created a swirl of interest in the San Francisco bay area in an astonishly short time. In the past year, they''ve headlined most of the mid-level venues, and his single ''n pink'' reached #1 on 89.5FM KPOO''s request line. In November, 2003, Bray was commissioned to sing "God Bless America'' at governor Arnold Schwarzenegger''s final campaign rally.
