Im a well gigged musician having been in a band for 2 years and solo for 2 years. I have a lot of experience on stage as well as in the studio and write all my own songs (don't let that put you off, i'm not adversed to other peoples songs, it's just always been down to me).
I play guitar, both rhythm and lead. I can work my way round the bass too.
I'm looking for like minded musicians who are committed to getting somewhere. Who enjoy it and want to experience all those things only a handful of people in history get to experience.
Please contact me on 07827667191 if you are interested in me. Whether that be to start a band or to audition me as a singer.

Behind My Eyes
Behind My EyesA relationship break up. I used to say to her a lot "One day we'll be gold". Clearly we broke up but go back in time and you'll pick up the vibe.
All That I've Done
All That I've DoneI wrote this song when I hit a few chords by accident and liked them. The words seemed to come from nowhere but have real meaning once complete. Like most songs, you take out of it what it means to you.... it's one of my favourites. x

Fight It Alone (demo)
Fight It Alone (demo)Music and Lyrics - Lawrence Bray Produced by Tommy Gleeson Mastered by Pete Maher Photography by Kevin Donnelly (c) 2014 UReckon Records I was out in Camden one night with a couple of friends. As I looked around I saw certain people in the crowd getting lots of attention from everyone. I later found out these people had famous parents (won’t mention who). “They lay back sitting in there golden chair, whilst we gather round, we wanna stop and stare”, a reference to the hangers on, the egotistical kids I suppose.
Not Backing Down (Demo)
Not Backing Down (Demo)Lyrics by Lawrence Bray Music by Lawrence Bray and Tommy Gleeson Produced and mixed by Tommy Gleeson Mastered by Pete Maher Photography by Kevin Donnelly (c) 2014 UReckon Records I was round my friend David Francis' house when I wrote this and ‘Come and Get Me’. I had a rough idea as to how this song would pan out, I already had the first verse. To be fair it could’ve gone on a completely different route but I wanted it to be more positive and stand alone. I tried to put myself in the shoes of someone whose relationship with their partner had sort of imploded (you can see how many ways it could’ve gone now with that idea). I went with the scenario that someone had, in essence fallen out of love with the narrator in the song, through no fault of their own but when something like that happens there is only one thing to do…pick yourself up and rock n roll so I tried to put all the emotions in the lyrics. Love, Hate, Single Mindedness as well as the feelings that lay underneath.
