THIS MOMENT, WHEN YOU REALLY GIVE A FUCK HOW YOU LOOK LIKE WHILE DANCING, IS CALLED FREEDOM. IMPALA RAY IS LIKE AN EPIC ROADTRIP ALONG STUNNING PLACES TOGETHER WITH YOUR BEST FRIENDS.
To set freedom to a tune sounds great, but not everyone can do it. Because studio skills alone are not enough. You have to have experienced them, done your thing.
Ray is one of those. One who is on the road in the world. One who has been making music for a long time and has taken it to stages all over Europe. His songs are inspired by the vibes of the California Bay Area as well as by the time he lived in Africa.
IMPALA RAY IS THE SOUND YOU TO LISTEN TO WHEN YOU WANNA LET GO.
Shortly after the Munich singer and guitarist Ray finally decides that an office life is not the right thing for him, he starts anew and founds IMPALA RAY.
His friends Nicola (Tuba), Dominik (Drums) and Carmen (Dulcimer) hook up with Ray.
They play in parks, next to the Isar in Munich and during shitty weather in laundrettes – with fresh new sounds. If you want to get in touch with people, you can do just as well with tuba and dulcimer as with African drums and experimental beats.
IT´S THE MUSIC THAT MATTERS WHICH TAKE YOU ON A JOURNEY ONE OF A KIND.
Ray takes the listener on a journey through dusty deserts, colourful slums and vast steppes. All this leads into an international sound with a lot of wanderlust for which you love IMPALA RAY. Californian West Coast vibe meets a wealth of different whacked out instruments like dulcimer, xylophone, tuba and also African rhythms with electronic elements.
The result: rough and grooving at the same time. Then tender, casual and wonderfully special. Just like the African antelopes, the impalas, which lend their name to IMPALA RAY.
