It is a rare creative soul who can work at the highest artistic levels in two distinct disciplines. Ray Stephenson has just this kind of soul.
Wildly literate, utterly artistic, impossibly ambitious, absolutely a slave to his art, the South Georgian is completely committed to the truth. He is a world class songwriter, recording artist, an intensely captivating live singer, guitar player, record producer & virtuoso painter. Add in the ability to express the uniquely personal in a universal way, and you have a true artist.
Ray Stephenson does exactly that in his paintings, his songwriting & his performances.
As a songwriter, Ray was named “CCMA Songwriter of the Year” in 2013 at the Canadian Country Music Awards. His song "Leaning on a Lonesome Song" went #1 in Canada for 5 weeks and #1 on the European country chart. In 2011, Ray wrote title tracks for Blake Shelton’s album Red River Blue & Kenny Chesney’s album Hemingway's Whiskey, which both reached #1 on the Billboard Album Charts & were certified Platinum. He's been a part of 4 GRAMMY nominated projects & 1 GRAMMY winning project.
He's written songs for Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard, Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, John Anderson, Guy Clark & many more.
