I’ve watched my soul brother Ray develop and evolve over the years as a mirror image to my own life. Each new album shows us something different, as layers of a soul is laid bare with the strumming of guitars.
June 5th, 2018, marks the 4th or 5th time that I’ve seen him play live. This concert started out with Neko Case opening.
Her voice still haunts me.
When it was Ray’s time to play, he only played songs from his new album, “A part of the Light”. While I’m sure many people were disappointed to not hear his classic songs that caused fans to love him in the first place, this album is simply amazing.
I respect the fact that we only heard the new album, in it’s entirety, and it sounded beautiful, the band was tight, and Ray’s voice was on fire.
