Play Date - Ask Your Mom if You Can Come Over
Play date is a duo collaboration featuring world-famous, six-time All Star champion drummer Chaisaray Schenck (Us the Duo, , Noobious, Jonathan Scales Fourchestra, Cody Wright, Melissa Reaves), and regional-semi-famous bass player and computer guy John Daniel Ray (Mr. Haircut).
This is John Daniel Ray’s newest single, featuring virtuosos Michael Anderson on keys and Chaisaray Schenck on drums. There is an amazing video by Stillframe Storytelling accompanying this tune.
This is the first full length album of John Daniel Ray’s original compositions with a quintet of his favorite musicians in the world. The purpose of writing these tunes was to create a new standard catalogue of music that could be pulled out on pick-up gigs.
Noobious is a video game music cover band led by prodigy pianist/composer Michael Anderson. Chaisaray Schenck and John Daniel Ray round out the trio.
Upside Down Moon
I wrote a song for my beautiful friends Amy and Kevin Beck, who just got married! This song is about looking at the ocean under a full moon, bending over backwards so it looks like the horizon is curving up around the moon.
