Who am I?

Hello world (^^), my name is Phoenix Ray  - I write music and I would love to share my story with YOU.

Music has always been a huge part of my life – I started playing the violin when I was 5 and picked up singing from around 10. Although I’ve always had the ambition to release my own music, I always let other projects get in my way... that's until NOW.

4 years ago, I suddenly became ill after travelling and since then, I’ve had a rocky ride with my health. But, if illness has taught me anything, it is that life is short and you have to seize each moment!

 

What is Phoenix Ray?

The Phoenix Ray project started last year – and I have been compiling songs and melodies that I’ve written all throughout my life.

You can check some of my demos here:

www.phoenix-ray.com

https://www.reverbnation.com/phoenixray

 For me, Phoenix Ray is a symbol of hope and rebirth. In Greek mythology a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor.  I see it as a symbol of courage, hope and the ability to do anything you desire. And that’s exactly what I’m trying to do with my music project.

 

So what’s the plan?

My plan is to release an EP - currently called 'Di.chotomy'* (*working name) - hopefully by the end of this year with your help.

‘Di.Chotomy’* would have a handful of songs – both in their digital format, as well as in their acoustic natural format. In a way, it’s a representation of the polarity of our lives, and the ups and downs we all go through.

My vision is to make music for a bigger cause: music which is empowering, telling, uplifing & fun!

 

Why fundraise?

The truth is, creating music is a beautiful art,  - but it also takes a lot of time and money!

From the writing process, to recording, mixing, mastering… a lot of work goes into making an EP. Also, once recorded, there is also a lot to consider so that I can get the music in YOUR hands.

That means pressing physical copies, setting it up for digital distribution and also taking it into a live setting such as gigs, for people to truly enjoy.

‘楽しくて、人を励ますような音楽を作りたいな。。。’     フェニックス レイ

 

フェニックス レイとは?

 このプロジェクトは昨年始まりました。今まで書いてき様々な曲やメロディーをコンパイルしています。 下のリンクでデモの一部を聞くことができます:

www.phoenix-ray.com

https://www.reverbnation.com/phoenixray

僕にとっては、フェニックス(火の鳥)とは、希望と再生のシンボルです。ギリシャ神話では、フェニックスは前任者の灰から生じることで、新しい人生を取得します。人生の苦難から強く成長できるというメッセージです。

 

なぜ資金集め?

音楽を作ることとはとても楽しい芸術であるが、時間とお金がかかります。CDを作るには色々な作業があります。ライティング、レコーディング、ミキシング、そしてマスタリング。

また、音楽が出来たところで、CDのコピー、デジタル配信、そしてライブなど色々とやることがあります。
