Eric & Ray Bio

The versatile writing and production team of Eric Montgomery and Ray Legnini have been friends since both musicians worked for a professional keyboard musical instrument manufacturer, and have been contributing to each other's musical efforts ever since.

Their music is a collaborative effort in which each musician brings a unique set of skills to the table, allowing the group to compose, arrange, perform, record, produce, and mix their projects with impressive results.

As performers, the pair cover a wide range of instruments: keyboards such as piano, organ, and synths, the essential bass and drums, as well as a huge palette of electric and acoustic guitars and related stringed instruments such as ukulele, resonator, lap steel, baritone guitar, and bass. Special guest performers, such as the ever-mysterious "Skunk" on bass add to the creative mix and sonic options.

The music of Eric & Ray blends influences from a variety of genres—contemporary jazz, blues, R&B, hip hop, and more—and distills them into a unique and listenable groove-based instrumental fusion featuring catchy melodic hooks, creative solos, and top notch production.

It's a treat for your ears!
