ray william roldan / swing samurai
|Howdy folks! My name is Ray William Roldan, I'm a singer/song writer artist born in Jersey and raised in So Cal, and I head an Alt-Country band called Swing Samurai.
We consider our music to be a sort of Cosmic Cowboy Surf Blues Rock thang!
I've been an artist of one sort or other my entire life, but music and words seem to fire up my soul the most.
I write about what ever inspires me and I let the song dictate the format and genre, (Though we do spend a lot of time doin' a country honky tonk blues flavored thing).
I've had a chance to work with some of the best cat's in the biz (an honor).
My songs have been getting extensive radio play all across the planet and we're charting high on many charts.
Iâ€™ve completed my 2nd CD "Where We Come From" which has followed very closely on the heels of our late 2006 release "In California Country". To find out more see my web page and check my myspace sites and my Digital Rodeo site !
I'm an independent artist and I've worked very hard to achieve the recognition I've gained.
Happy trails for now! Ray William Roldan & Swing Samurai
