BETA RAY'S birth was natural by all members uniting at the end of 2012 in Oakland, CA, but now relocated in the heart of the Bay Area's San Francisco, CA, music scene. A presence to witness and a ROCK sound to hail as the next wave in music entertainment. Their (in-production) album of songs will leave an indelible impression of melody-driven, lyrical emotion and performance energy forever to the memory. Beta Ray's founding member on drums, Gary, vacated the position in December of 2013 and in his place arrived James (aka: JAMERS) in January of 2014.
MIG is the singer/rhythm guitarist and fearless leader. Born in San Francisco, CA. The early years of live at five to sing and heaven at seven on guitar proved to be the magic marriage to pen his first song at twelve. An interest from Epic Records among other music industry experiences with the band Left Out Lamont (disbanded) have been invaluable in shaping Beta Ray to be a force to be reckon with. The voice of attention and the formula-1 songwriter of catchy pop/rock fire, he will touch one or of many in attendance with his presence, confidence and charisma. True to form of a frontman.
James (aka: J-ROCK) is the drummer and backbone to the nerve center of this core team of musical talent. Born in San Francisco, CA, his mark in music is deep and wide range. He anchors the sound methodically and is the lethal judge, jury and execution in massive attack modes and focused deliveries. The wild child of sticks and hits meets self-control action.
Al (aka: LIGHTENING) is the bassist, who brings the fat and thunderous shake to the mind, heart and soul. Born in Maine, he's performed in the U.S. as a founding member of former RCA Records recording group DrySpell (disbanded). He will mesmerize the eyes with his physical energy, notes of melodic flare and moments of flash to his spitfire-fret work. The bottom feeder of thick and heavy.
Scott (aka: SOLO) is the final element to this champion of rock bands. Born in Maryland, his pre-teens of listening to icons of lead guitar struck him to learn and hone the skill and talent in lead and rhythm, mixing textbook and freestyle of all genres. His lead guitar emits sonic waves to electrify the world around him and beyond with a whisper to the ear or in your face hypnotic control. Guitar gods raise their fists in the air when he enters the rock arena . A true defender of the six-stringed sword to wield and hero and faith healer to the axe lovers.
