Ray Stinnett: Sun Tree @ Pepper West
Presenting a rare Time Warp journey to a place and time of major social change and the evolution of consciousness. "Memphis 1969, the days of civil liberties and personal liberation. Now all of the influences of the 60's were at their peak and the music I had been composing for two years was ripe and ready for recording. That's what Booker T. said when he heard me perform some of my songs and arrangements when I was jamming with some other musician friends." Ray Stinnett in his own words: "I grew up in Memphis in the heart of Rock-N-Roll, I was surrounded by Rock-A-Billy, Country, Delta Blues, Soul, Pop, Jazz and all emerging Memphis music in general. During my chart topping (Wooly Bully) days of the mid 60's I shared the stage with the best National and International players. Broad musical influences began to color my creative style. Songwriting and recording is my passion. I have worked with Memphis best studio mentors including the legendary Booker T. Jones who produced these two albums with me as featured singer/songwriter artist.
