Ray Wilson – Songs for a Friend (2016) • Soulfood

2016 album from the former ex-Stiltskin/Genesis vocalist. Inspired by the many intimate experiences from his acoustic storytelling concerts, Ray decided to write a collection of musical short stories. Stories, simply, about life. Stiltskin guitarist and collaborator, Uwe Metzler, sketched out some acoustic ideas, and the journey began. Moving through jealousy, anger, hurt, regret, disappointment, fate, and love. Ray often exposes his innermost feelings through his music, and the minimalist production on this collection of songs provides a particularly intimate expression of those emotions. Ray’s love of the road has been his musical lifeline, and the journey has been good for him. Whether a concert or an album they are a journey for the soul. A journey that will allow you to escape your demons and embolden yourself, spiritually. This album was written to inspire. When you feel like giving in, when you feel you are losing the will to keep pushing or fighting. This was written to help you dig deep, and fight for joy and peace in your life. The meaning of life is the journey. This album encapsulates that journey. Song For A Friend is dedicated to Ray’s friend, James Lewis, who died in 2015.
