Ray at the studio


Ray Grant was born in the South Side of Chicago in the Back of the Yards neighborhood. 


He picked up his first guitar as a teenager for $3 from a buddy of his.  He would play songs in his head and then play the melodies on his guitar.  To this day, Grant has never taken a lesson and doesn't know how to read notes.   


Grant became an independent musician by composing, singing, and arranging his own music.  He acquired the record label Stat Records.  In 1990, Grant put out his first album "It's About Time" for  which he earned a Grammy nomination in 1991 for the title song.

Grant then took a long break from composing music until 2016 when he met Sandy by chance. who then became his music collaborator, and they've been creating new music ever since.  Grant's music style is continuously evolving.  

His songs are personal, and most come from life experiences.  He is a true storyteller.  Music is his passion.  

Grant couldn't do this without his very talented team:  Jeff Luif, engineer; Colin Schlegel, engineer; Sky Legge, background singer; and Shynelle Owen, background singer.
