There’s a huge fireworks show that’s about to explode big time.
Award winning songwriter, singer and musician Brian Ray, best known as the ultimate sideman guitarist and bassist for Paul McCartney, takes a step out front in the spotlight and releases two songs from his upcoming solo album This Way Up.
Brian has been a songwriter and in-demand recording and touring musician for acts like Etta James, Smokey Robinson, Rod Stewart, Kelly Clarkson, and Chris Cornell to name a few, but for nearly a decade Brian Ray has been touring the world’s most iconic venues and stadiums with Paul McCartney.
Brian’s a terrific rock and roller who engages with his fans on Twitter and Facebook. He also writes from the heart and posts great back stage content and insights on his blog from when he is on the road.
And speaking of being on the road, Brian’s recently done 2 nights in Mexico City, played at the White House for The President and First Family, the Isle of Wright Festival, Hard Rock Calling and many other way cool venues during the current Up and Coming Tour.
On Tuesday, July 6, The Icon Music Group will be releasing world-wide the Brian Ray advance solo singles “I Found You” and “Happy Ending” wherever digital music is sold. The album is slated for release later this summer. “I Found You” was written by Brian Ray and Oliver Leiber (son of Jerry Leiber of Leiber & Stoller). “It’s a rambunctious song, an expression from the best part of me, looking in every possible place for the love and peace we all want…and finding it right before my eyes, where I least expected it!”
Turn it up LOUD.
