“American Idol's Taylor Walls, teamed up with Chas Burtchett, Josh Stokes, Mike Vaudeville and award-winning songwriter Lonny Ray to create the song.”

““Perceptions” has been such an incredible experience,” said Ray. "From the moment I penned those first words, the vision began to unfold and I was transported to become a part of the journey that Josh Stokes and fellow songwriter Mike Vandeville had placed in my mind weeks before.””

““We hope that this song will enlighten people to reach out to families living with Autism to have patience and understanding,” said Ray.”

“Lonny Ray has extraordinary chops: a hybrid of folk, country and contemporary. "That Summer Again" expounds on a time two people were able to meet and share a memorable life experience. Often times, we forget that life isn't just about short-term conspicuous gain or loss but it's the romance that we truly value and treasure in our lifetime. The ability to love is powerfully conveyed in his new release - an extremely nostalgic piece of work. Vocals are strong, along with great production and effortless instrumentation. This award-winning musician's sophistication, poise and ability to interpret provocative lyrics have landed him a spot on our #360WatchList.”

“Here is what Don Cudd AKA Hoss had to say about his pick from the CD Memory Of Years. "Lonny Ray is a native of suburban Detroit, and he made a big name for himself with his guitar there when he was just in his teens. Since then, he’s been a fixture in the music scenes of both Nashville and Los Angeles for several years, and, in 2007, he started seriously promoting himself as a solo act. This song is the title track off the first CD he’s done entirely of his originals. It was recorded with the production help of rock giant Robin Robins of the Silver Bullet Band, and I’ll testify that every song is as solid as they come."”
