Outlaw Country artist, Boo Ray, poured his heart and soul into his recently released fifth studio album, Sea of Lights, and it shows. The end result is a gritty, rockin’ good time that you can enjoy over the loudspeakers at a bar or in your car as you cruise down the highway on a road trip.
The album kicks off with “Redneck Rock n’ Roll” which is a boot-stomping, party anthem that will have you throwing back some cold one. It is followed by the title single, “Sea of Lights,” which is currently climbing the Americana charts. The tune gives listeners an insight into some of the hardships Boo Ray ran into (like being held up and broke down) before heading out to Los Angeles to record the entire album live to 2” tape in two days. (You can catch a glimpse of the recording process in the music video for “Sea of Lights.”)
Another great song on the album is “Keep The Hammer Down.” Between the blend of melodies and Boo Ray’s gritty vocals, you can hear Boo’s deep southern rock influences.
Overall, Sea of Lights is a strong album from start to finish. It boasts an authentic sound that is a welcomed departure from the pop-influenced country music that dominates country radio today. To take a listen for yourself, check out Boo Ray’s album here.
