Bio

:::::::UPDATE:::::::

OK gang! I'm back! :D Let's rock!

**DISCLOSURE: I can provide a Stereo Mix free of charge. Stem Files help pay the rent on my studio. I offer a sliding scale rate for those. Got a question? billraydrums@gmail.com**

Bill Ray pretty much showed up on earth with sticks in his hands. Born into a family of photographers, musicians with teachers and salesmen scattered throughout, the creative and logical influences that surrounded his youth would provide a constant source of inspiration and curiosity. At the age of 4 his path was clearly lit upon seeing the local drum guru George Lawrence perform a drum solo during a photo shoot at his parent's photography studio in Jackson, MS.

Since then, he has over the past three decades developed the ability to play what needs to be played to make a band sound good. BR also teaches via Skype and in person worldwide whether in a drum clinic or one-on-one lessons. He has also played on 150+ albums including Ike Turner's 2007 Grammy-Award winning "Risin' With The Blues".

BR is currently playing with instrumental rock guitar trio RDG, playing amazing shows with some of the hottest new groups out as well as opening shows for many legendary performers. Bill can be seen around his ?backyard? that is Southern California playing gigs with many different acts and artists.

Bill endorses Stone Custom Drum, Sabian Cymbals, Pro-Mark Drumsticks, Aquarian Drumheads, Kickport International, Sonall Percussion, Humes & Berg, Etymotic, Eccentric Systems, and Slug Percussion Products.
