Before the age of three, Ray Goren played nursery songs on his toy keyboard. By the age of five, he was playing his favorite tunes by Thelonious Monk, J.J. Johnson, Lee Morgan, Milt Jackson, Miles Davis, Jackie McLean and Oscar Peterson. A few years later, while searching Youtube, Ray stumbled on a clip of BB King, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy and Albert Collins playing together. Before the day was over, with the Internet at his disposal, Ray discovered many other blues and rock greats including Albert King, Luther Alison, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Otis Rush. After talking his parents into getting him a guitar, Ray put all of his musical efforts into learning the blues before going back to playing other styles. Ray started to write his own original music which draws primarily from R&B, Rock, Blues, Jazz, and Gospel. In the winter of 2013 and the spring of 2014, Ray went into the studio and recorded some of his original tunes. Ray will release his first EP early in the summer of 2014. Ray plans to continue recording his original music over the summer for another late summer release.
