The Songs of Peter Ray

In mid-January of 2022, I began a project to find, catalog, update, and record songs I wrote when I was in my late teens and early 20s – four decades ago, for those of you counting. It has been a fascinating project. Not only did it give me a chance to reacquaint myself with my younger self, it also forced me to pick up the guitar again and learn how to arrange and record music using a DAW (digital audio workbench) – initially Garageband, but quickly moved up to Logic X and the Antares plug-ins for autotuning my voice. What started as a simple project to keep me busy during the winter months has turned into an obsession as I record more and more songs, and continually tweak them to make them sound like what I think my Teenage Self intended. Enjoy!
