Single: "All You Can Eat Buffett"

LP: "Ray Bridgemay Takes a Cigarette Break"



Ray Bridgemay started in 2006 as an two-man acoustic folk group, consisting of Derek Mobbs and Stephen Parr. By 2007, Rodney, Steve, and Elton had joined the line-up and drastically altered the overall sound, turning it into a melting pot of very different music styles. Major influences of the band's unique sound include Pink Floyd, Every Time I Die, Bob Dylan, Rush, Grateful Dead, Modest Mouse, Sublime, Arctic Monkeys, and countless others. What sets Ray Bridgemay apart, other than their distinct sound, is their attention to detail, in song structure, chord progressions, personal and narrative lyrics cloaked in metaphors, and an openness to change or pushing back bounderies. The first LP, Ray Bridgemay Takes a Cigarette Break, was released earlier this year and was recorded at Blue Chair Studio with Todd Davis. The album's title comes from the fact that, at band practice, about 25% of the time was spent taking smoke breaks. Ray Bridgemay's story has just begun, but there is much more to come.
