“SUGARAY” RAYFORD IS AN AMERICAN SOUL BLUES SINGER AND SONGWRITER. HE HAS RELEASED SIX ALBUMS TO DATE AND WAS NOMINATED FOR TWO BLUES MUSIC AWARDS IN 2019.
On March 1st Forty Below Records released Somebody Save Me, the new studio album from Texas-born soul blues singer, Sugaray Rayford. On the album’s opening track, “The Revelator”, Rayford forcefully sings, “I’m a freak of nature / I ain’t no honey bee / I’m an unknown creature / The like you’ve never seen.” At 6’5” and 300 pounds, this cigar chompin’ ex-Marine with a voice like a force of nature holds court in any room he enters. Possessing a magnetic personality, and an old school vocal style that echoes Muddy Waters, Otis Redding and Teddy Pendergrass, Rayford is also a stellar dancer with moves reminiscent of the Legendary James Brown.
