3 Questions for Ray Powers
Having started touring at the age of 15 and being into different aspects of the music industry over your lifetime, what do you believe was your biggest moment?
You can pick 1 album that you’ve already heard to erase the memories of having heard it, and go back to listen to it like it’s the first time again. What would it be?
Do you prefer working with artists on the production side of things, or performing in front of an audience? asked by Shock Frenzy in episode 34.
About the song, It's You
This is my second-ever solo single, originally released in 2013 and remains a mainstay in my live set. I composed the music and lyrics unassisted. Music comes to me effortlessly, but lyrics can be a challenge. When I hit a speed bump on the lyric is when I'll typically reach out for a collaborator, but 'It's You' pretty much flowed for me.
I laugh when I hear a recording artist say that they can't pick a favorite song because, how you do play favorites among your 'babies'?
Songs evoke feelings, but songs don't have feelings that can be hurt. 'It's You' is my favorite.
I'm excited that the 2020 Remaster will give this and others a fresh new life on the airwaves.
