More about our artists
Called “an artist to watch out for” by the San Jose Mercury News, “Best Live Band” by the San Francisco Herald, and voted in the Top 100 Unsigned Bands in the Nation by Music Connection Magazine, singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Bray, performs regularly in San Francisco’s top venues and will embark on his fourth European tour this fall. At this point, Bray and his band have performed in ten countries to crowds in excess of 7,000.
Bray’s latest album, the ten-track @mphibian, is a tight set of jagged riffs, throbbing bass lines, and silky hooks. The crashing-out-of-the-gate sci-fi opener, “Clone Me” opens the disc, which also features the anthemic insta-hit “Only The Brave,” the scintillating “Tie Me Up,” and the gripping ballad, “Long Gone,” who’s video has garnered 35,000 YouTube views thus far. Nate Seltenrich of the East Bay Express describes the album as having a “straightforward hard-rock style,” with “confidence and attitude…that works.” Tracks from Bray’s previously released studio CDs, “Independent Film’ and ‘Pins and Needles,’ have enjoyed heavy rotation on over 150 CMJ stations nationwide, charting as high as #3. His tunes have appeared in national television shows on NBC, as well as in MTV Road Rules, VH1 Old Skool and the syndicated reality series, Bad Girls Club.
With his fourth studio album now in production and the “Clone Me” video release set for this spring, Bray is not an artist to miss. He’s performed to over 500,000 at SF Pride and shared stages with Slash, Scott Weiland, Joe Satriani, and members of the Doors and The Sex Pistols. “Bray and his band blow the doors off the joint!” raves Grammy Award-winner Dr. Fink (Prince). At a recent performance for the Grammy New Artist Showcase in San Francisco, Narada Michael Walden ran backstage immediately after Bray’s set and proclaimed him a star.
