Ray Lunn, originally from Kansas City, Kansas, has lived in Jacksonville, Florida since 1993. Ray started his musical addiction around 2001 when he was asked by a close friend to join an emerging band as a bass player. Like most guys out there, Ray was a closet guitarist who played just to himself and the radio until he got that offer. Ray’s powerful blends of rhythms and progressions come from a musical interest in rock, funk, soul, and blues when he picked up the electric guitar while in college. Ray has taken what he knows from the electric guitar and the many jam sessions with Jacksonville’s talented musicians and has made his own style of bass playing the thing you hear today. You will find Ray forming a rhythmic pocket locked in step with the drummer that takes the band and listener on an infectious musical ride. Ray’s philosophy and approach to the bass is to lock it in and let it go with the idea of taking the song and the listener on a musical journey full of surprising twist and turns.
