The Screamin' Rays

For the members of the Screamin' Rays, the concept of a Christ-centered jumpin' "swingabilly" act was a long-awaited dream brought to life by Metro One Records A&R Rep, Chris Lizotte. He introduced the idea to the record company staff who were ecstatic over the idea. What resulted was an assembling of an all-star line up of Christian roots musicians from Southern California and, subsequently, the formation of the Screamin' Rays debut release, Attack of the Screamin' Rays. All the members of the Rays were active in the SoCal roots music scene - from traditional juke-joint blues bands to Jay Leno's Tonight Show Band.

"I really believe there is a gaping hole in the Christian music industry that needs to filled by a rockin' swing and rockabilly act. I think the Lord brought these guys together for that purpose and they fill the need perfectly," says Lizotte. The Rays is much more than an offshoot into a dead-ended musical fad. It's really a conglomeration of all the members favorite types of music. Explains frontman T-Ray: "We had all been taking our knocks and paying dues musically for a long time. We all knew that this was the right thing to do - play together for the Lord. An opportunity came along to play our favorite music - the stuff we were raised on - and to minister to people. - Metro One Records.

Vocalist "C-Ray" is actually Christian pop singer Crystal Lewis.
