Description: It all starts with song-writing, it turns into a blend of folk-inspired lyrics, brit-pop evoking melodies and on-the-road sonic attitude. Ray Tarantino was born in Italy and was raised in the UK. Now he lives in Nashville TN where he has been adopted by a succulent music community. When not touring across the US he gets the best out of the Nashville writers' scene and the rootsy sound of North Texas. Award winning songwriter and producer with a soulful side and a "million dollar voice" (Into The Hill). Ray Tarantino's debut album Recusant was produced by Tony Bowers (co-founder and bass player of British platinum-selling band Simply Red) and put Ray first in the MySpace charts with Amy Winehouse and Gomez. His second self titled album was released by Tiny Drum Records in May of 2012 and was received extremely well. His third album is in the works and will be cut in Nashville. Ray tours acoustic solo, relying on his songs and the sound of his guitars and vocals. Like they say in Nashville "It All Starts With A Song".
