@mphibian is Bray''s 3rd studio album, released on July 11, 2009. Produced by Gary St. Clair and Bray, and recorded in a small studio in the Mojave Desert, this 10 track album tracks Bray''s exploration of the duality of human nature. From the driving indie rock spasm of the new college radio hit "Subliminal Criminals," to the sci-fi frenzy of "Clone Me" (featuring Dr. Fink of Prince and the Revolution), to the raw and plaintive ballad "Long Gone," @mphibian is powerful statement by an intriguing artist who just happens to be backed by a world class band.
Called “An artist to watch out for,” by the San Jose Mercury News, “Best Live Band” by the San Francisco Herald, and a “musical persona (that) screams STAR,” by the San Francisco Chronicle, Bay Area singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Bray, proudly announces the release of his third studio CD, @mphibian.
Bray’s ten-track @mphibian explodes from your sound system with driving grooves, irresistible magnetism, pure primal energy, and breath-taking ballads. Bray’s jagged rhythmic riffs, throbbing bass lines, and silky hook-laden melodies, as exemplified in the crashing-out-of-the-gate disc opener, “Clone Me”, the scintillatingly sexy “Tie Me Up,” and the anthemic “Only The Brave,” combine for a “straightforward hard-rock style,” with “confidence and attitude,” “that works,” states Nate Seltenrich of the East Bay Express.
Bray’s gripping ballads, the soul-scorching “I Was Wrong,” and deeply passionate and forlorn “Long Gone,” resonate on the heartstrings of every listener who has ever loved and lost and who hopes to find solace for a broken heart that remains in love. Bray’s ability to reach into each and every listener to convey the feelings of anguish associated with heartbreak reveals a songwriting and performance maturity on the same level of Freddie Mercury and Elton John.
Bray’s music floods your soul with a gritty, seductive cutting-edge rock sound and a disarming pop sensibility to such a point, Zero Magazine proclaims, “Bray is undefeated in the originality category.” Bray’s lusty, sweat-soaked, shout-along live performances are described as “Mike Patton and Elvis Costello meeting for a Molotov with the sharp, crunchy riffs of The Killers, and theatrical shades of Bowie,” states Brooke Aldridge of Pulse. Aaron Axelson, music director of San Francisco’s premier FM New Rock radio station, LIVE 105, states, “I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he lands a major recording contract.”
Bray is not an artist to miss. “Bray and his band blow the doors off the joint!” raves someone who knows a thing or two about live performers: the Grammy Award-winning Matt Fink, aka Dr. Fink, former keyboardist and co-writer with Prince and the Revolution.
Tracks from Bray’s previously released studio CDs, “Independent Film’ and ‘Pins and Needles,’ have enjoyed heavy rotation on over 150 CMJ stations nationwide, charting as high as #3. Bray has also toured Europe three times in two years, performing in ten countries to crowds in excess of 7,000. His tunes have appeared in national television shows on NBC, as well as in MTV Road Rules, VH1 Old Skool and Bad Girls Club. He’s performed to over 500,000 at SF Pride, and Bray has shared stages with Slash, Scott Weiland, Joe Satriani, and members of the Doors and The Sex Pistols.
