ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
bio


"…a master storyteller who knows how to wrap each song in an intensely personal cloak." J. Doug Gill, Musicians Monthly

Ray Weaver is first and foremost, a songwriter. He has the rare ability to transform life into songs that are intensely personal, yet still touch a universal chord. Encouraged by the reviews of his debut release, ”What You Wish For”, Ray took his songs to Nashville. That lead to a publishing deal with Songs for Darshan Music and cuts by the Hard Travelers, Brandi Chapman, Buddy Renfro, Tiffany Rebstock (a Texas artist who recorded an entire album of Ray Weaver songs), and Tim Malchak.

"The song writing talent here is really pretty formidable, the names of Steve Earle, Townes van Zandt and Guy Clark all spring to mind." Doug Floyd, altcountrytab.com

Ray Weaver is also an established international performer. A well known face in the Mid-Atlantic region of the US, Ray was recognized for his forceful and compelling stage presence. He played concerts and clubs from New York to the Carolinas, appearing with artists like Colin Raye, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and Porter Wagonner. In Nashville, Ray performed regularly at the Bluebird Cafe, the 16th Avenue Cafe, and as lead singer for the house band at the Turf on lower Broadway. He met some Danish artists that were recording in Nashville, and when they invited him to play with them in Denmark, an international career was launched.

"Ray Weaver writes memorable songs that you want to hear again and again...Knut Andre´Dale, Musikkguiden Groove.no

Since then Ray has performed in countless venues throughout Europe. He has re-released his critically acclaimed project, ”What You Wish For”, and his new CD, "Confession" is now available.

”…has the potential to move up into the big leagues…” Dirty Linen

E. Rhame

Ray Weaver's Confession is the work of a seasoned songsmith.
Ray Weaver's latest release 'Confession' is just that, songs of confession, replete with soul searching, remorse and reward. The resulting listen is equal parts classic and contemporary- the songs are self composed and the production is state of the art, warranting air play on any number of self respecting radio stations. Weaver shows a virtuosity in not only lyric, but in song arrangement as well. From the opening two step bump of 'This Road' to the closing raspy notes of 'Like Heroin', Weaver covers the Americana landscape like a seasoned professional, proving that outstanding musicianship and true grit need not be mutually exclusive propositions. One can only hope that with Weaver's return to the States after an extended expatriation in Denmark, ears and eyes will open to a release which is true country music as it was meant to be: from the heart of the singer, lacking any filler.

What a journey! Feed your soul and spark your imagination!
I just love this CD. He invites you into his very soul and the trip is awesome. From the soulful & sexy 'Big Time' to the tear jeaking 'Princess Years' (oreo cookies and kool-aid tea - OMG!) to the love he expresses for his wife/life-mate in 'At the End of The Day'. This CD will be a close friend for years to come.

Mature songwriting beautifully executed
...a great singer-songwriter in the style of Browne and Hiatt. Several of these songs have become firm favourites of mine over the last few months. This is tender, compassionate, honest, articulate and mature songwriting beautifully executed by great musicians, including Al Perkins. The sequencing maintains the pace of the album, there are some good rockers on here along with the ballads and the Tom Waitsian Big Time which puts you right in the bar-room. And while they border on sentimentality, songs like Angels Holding Hands Between Us, Jeg Elsker Dig and Princess Years bring a tingle to my cynical old eyes. I’d love to hear him duet At The End Of The Day with Emmylou…reckon she might say ‘yes’ too!. - Loon Rider

The opposite of "hat country", which means its pretty great.
If you like the following, you'll like this: Townes, Earle, Kris, Delbert, Ray Wylie, McMurtry, maybe even some Chris Knight, and the list goes on. Great songwriting, great delivery, nothing but good times from this guy, just listen to the clips and you'll see what I mean. Highly recommended.
