Son of Ray
SON OF RAY is a Rootsy Rock and Roll band hailing from Calgary, Alberta. Led by singer-songwriter, Rob Lagace, this band of old souls has set out to pay homage to the traditional values of rock and roll while adding their own unique flavour. With a groovy blend of rootsy rock, funky folk, and country blues, the songs are both refreshing and familiar. Stacked up behind Lagace’s raggedly soulful delivery is a driving heartbeat pounded out by Jeff Towers on drums, locked in tightly with the pulsing bass lines of Bob Richardson, and woven together with the sonic stylings of guitarist Mike Fournier. Although only recently formed in 2015, the band has come out the gates flying with the release of their debut album, Keepin’ It Real. After emerging in the local music scene, the band also earned nationwide coverage in the CBC Searchlight competition as regional finalist and appeared on stages and at festivals across Alberta and Western Canada.
