Nick Ray is an independent producer/singer/songwriter from New Orleans. His music career began as a lead singer in the local scene performing with numerous rock and alternative bands.

"With his very strong vocals, it wouldn't be surprising to see this artist take off at any point.
His voice naturally crosses music genres and it's something I'd love to see continue with Nick Ray as he has yet to disappoint." - www.higoodmusic.com
