How nice to receive an e-mail from an artist who wishes to introduce his tunes to us! We couldn’t resist to write up a little something in this Sweet Saturday Sounds. All fans of the singer/songwriter, britpop/indie rock genre, please read on:
Lawrence Bray used to be the frontman of the band ScenicLife, and decided to take his chance as a solo artist at the start of 2014. He teamed up with producer Tommy Gleeson, and Lawrence’s EP ‘Best Served Loud’ -mastered by none other than Peter Maher (Lana Del Rey/U2/The Killers/Oasis)- was a fact.
When describing his sound Bray says: “The sound I was aiming for, and believe Tommy and I did achieve is a distinctive one, it reflects my style and I think will appeal to the many millions of people who’ve followed the British guitar band invasion ranging from bands like The Beatles, The Who, Oasis, Stereophonics etc. All of which are classic examples of my influences. I’m a great believer in songs that have a great melody – a strong melody will always win.”
If I was thrown back in music history, I would trade careers with?
Mick Jagger because he’s been doing it for so long. The music The Rolling Stones plays is so good and has been consistently good for over 50 years plus he’s had more than his fair share of women!
