Album Notes
Soul is back in a big way! And that is because nobody understands how to rock harder and be more soulful than Riverside / Los Angeles, CA quartet The BellRays.

THIS IS THE BELLRAYS ORIGINAL LINE-UP: Fronted by the soul-drenched, intense voice of Lisa Kekaula, the guitar work of Bob Vennum, and the danceable, undeniably rocking rhythm section of Tony Bramel (bass) and Ray Chin (drums), The BellRays put on one hell of a show. They don't just stop there, either, managing to put it all on tape - somehow.

Their brand of rock 'n' soul has caught the attention of true music and rock 'n' roll fans, bands, and critics all over.

The BellRays have garnered national acclaim from such notable publications as LA Weekly (who also bestowed them with the Best LA Rock award two years running), LA Times, New Times, CMJ, Austin Chronicle, San Francisco Weekly, Hit List, BAM, Village Voice, Maximum R&R, Flipside, OC Weekly... the list goes on and on.

They were the buzz of the 1999 SxSW festival. They have toured the country with the likes of Nashville Pussy, shared the stage with Wayne Kramer, Rocket from the Crypt, the Muffs, and Public Enemy (in France) to name a few, gaining respect in every town they play.

In the Light of the Sun is the BellRays first album, originally self-released on cassette in 1993.

It has recently been mastered and will be released on CD for the first time in 2002.

Lively - Blusey in an upbeat, rock sort of way!
Very lively and upbeat! The music is rockin', with the incorporation of an overall blusey style. Friends contantly ask: Hey, what's that CD that's playing?

The Bellrays should be on the short list of the best bands ever!
This CD is outstanding, considering that it is, essentially, a remastering of an early demo album. As many others have said, the Bellrays can be categorized as "Aretha Franklin fronts the MC5"--soulful rock (or rockin' soul?). Lisa Kekaula's voice is one of the strongest in rock. I saw them at the Black Cat in DC and they tore the place apart. If you don't like this CD, there's something wrong with you!

That lady sure can sing, and the bands good too.......
