Dubbed as Hell Raisin' Country, Early Ray is certainly catching fire and heating up stages all around the Carolinas and the Southeast!
This young magnetic, good-looking country singer-songwriter delivers his powerful songs with a rock edge, but with the core of a country purist.
I love the intro to his bio, which reads: I've never liked bios much as they are typically filled with cream puff quotes about how artsy, powerful or amazing an artist's music is. Instead, I'm going tell you a little about myself...
Country music lovers, and country music artists, down here in the South... we don't separate the artist from his music. We liken it back to Hank Williams Sr. and George Jones, Loretta and Dolly. Music and Life Experience co-exist, co-mingle, and are so inextricably intertwined that they are one in the same.
Good goin' Ray! You ARE it!

Classically trained musicians, PJ Brunson on piano and Laurie Neal on violin, masterfully perform classical masterpieces, traditional Celtic treasured and their own inspired original pieces with a new age feel.
Their latest CD, Still Waters, is a mixture of the duos own new age compositions and traditional classics, seasoned with a slightly modern flavor. Rife with originality and laden with the talent of these two performers, this album is one that you will want to hear again and again. I passionately recommend it!

"Michelle is a typical high school student until one night she is bitten by a strange animal while running in the woods. Her best friend tries to help her understand the changes she's going through, as she becomes a Vampire. Challenged by immortality and hunted by a group obsessed with fulfilling a prophecy about the end times, Michelle finds solace in a brood of Vampires whom she can't figure out if they are trying to help her or kill her. The fight is on! Will it be Immortality or Humanity? Tonight the destiny of one of these races will change forever."

If you are a musician, (like me) you got 'em! It's the promises we make to no one but ourselves this time of year... usually involving being a little more dedicated to our instrument(s), honing our talents, and so many of us, (me included,) promising ourselves that we will Practice! Practice! Practice! Hey! How else are we gonna get to Carnegie Hall, right?
Of course, ALL OF THE ABOVE is on my list of musical resolutions this year! (Just like last year and the year before, and... well. You know as well as I do!)
I DO resolve to be a better musician this year! And I DO resolve to practice more! But... in 2012, I have added another layer to my musical resolutions.
Music is by far my first love. From my earliest memories, I have always dreamt of living my life filled with music, making it my career and my life's ambition. I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to fulfill that dream, at least in part, most days of my life.
"Justina Blessing will suffer the consequences of both parent's actions. She will meet a man Sebastian Blessing, that by all appearances seems to be the opposite, of what she has experienced as a child. What she thinks is a dream come true, will turn out to be a nightmare. Justina will triumph over obstacles, that would have destroyed most women. She will live and she will learn. Hopefully the lessons she learns, will teach all of us about ourselves. What doesn't kill us, should make us stronger. She will prevail, but not without a fight."
