It’s been quite an evolution for this native New Yorker. From singing gospel music in his father’s Baptist church, to recording contemporary R&B and house music for Epic/550 and A&M Records, valuable experience was gained. Redray then toured the country as front man of the soulful rock-band “Mosaic” on the H.O.R.D.E. music festival. Through opening for Lenny Kravitz and Blues Traveler, to name a few, Redray gained notoriety. Soon thereafter, he joined former front man of “The Talking Heads”, David Byrne’s in his touring band from 2008-2010.
While Redray uses all of his influences, his songwriting draws comparisons from Ben Harper to Maxwell. However, his smooth and smoky vocal quality along with his gospel approach set him apart. “I’ve always listened to various styles of music, everything from Curtis Mayfield to the Strokes. It doesn’t matter to me, as long as the music has heart.”
