My story I am deeply rooted in a gifted family of gospel musicians. I love versatility and try to reach all age groups with my music and songs. I write, arrange, perform, produce and record my own music. I do listen to various styles of music because it broadens my knowledge which enhances my style. I want others to be blessed and motivated to another spiritual level in life by allowing myself to be used as a vessel to give messages of life. I have had the privilege to retire from the U.S. Marines after 20 years of service. I served (2) combat tours and returned home without a scratch by the grace of God! Having been all over the world, I've had the honor to serve in many churches as well as play for some of the best artist in the gospel arena. I have played for Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Ronald Winnans (late) as well as opened for Willie Neal Johnson (late) & the Gospel Keynotes, The Williams Brothers, Paul Porter & The Christianaires to name a few. I have worked the sound for CeCe Winnans & the Born Again Choir while in Nashville, TN. I served as Minister of Music/ Music Director while in Okinawa, Japan, Little Ark Baptist Church, Dalgren, VA and while at Camp Al Asaad Chapel in Iraq. My gifts have made room for me and have allowed me opportunities to be before great men and women while yet learning my craft. I have been influenced by many artist from various genres which help me to have my own uniqueness about me. I am a true worshiper at heart and I love when God uses me to usher people into His presence. What I am about I am a Gospel singer/musician with over 35 years of experience with music. I produce, write, play and record music. I work using ProTools HD-3, Logic Pro X, and Reason along with other software which allows me the flexibility for any recording desires. When the recording is done, I want my music to be a life changing experience for all listeners. Instrumentation Raymond E. Silver - Guitar, Bass, Drums, Keyboard Discography I've also recorded several local artists out of my studio. I completed my own CD titled "Use Me" because I have been called to serve. My project gives me the opportunity to do just that and it can be purchased thru CDBaby.com, iTunes & Amazon.com and I am looking forward to getting it out to all to be blessed by it! I am excited about this season of life for me and I'm ready for the challenges ahead for my music career.
