We are all looking for that special CD to give someone with alot of meaning. Raywood’s new CD is one of those releases that we feel may be one of your

favorites if you listen to it just once. Ray Maturin has been a songwriter and vocalist for 30 years and has an amazing track record that you would remember as an opening band for various names like Stevie B., Kyper, Noel, and many more in the early 80’s and 90’s with a band called X-change. Ray has been through many ups and downs in the music industry….from signing with labels and having to start all over again… to playing with Shimmur and now back songwriting as “Raywood.” And clearly this is one album that will make you say this is “heart-felt songwriting” from a man who loves the ability to sing, and loves to sing for people who enjoy live music. Our favorite tracks on the CD are “Walk By Faith,” “Dirty Ways,” “Be That Man,” & “Louisiana Rain.” We feel if you take the time to click purchase the CD below you will also feel it will be one of the best in your collection. If you have been looking for a “gem” in your CD collection this one is it. Best of luck to this Louisiana Musician and hopefully the best of success on the new CD titled “Ray’s Joint.”
Today we had the chance to talk about a great band that has toured across America in various bands starting as “Motorhome” in the Denver area then

traveling to Louisiana and making things even more interesting with adding the styles and various influences of well faceted drummer Dave “Papa-Puff” Nezat,” The inventive well rounded guitar playing of Justin Lewis, The bass playing of Pro Skateboarder Shannon May, and of course the unique vocal style of Matt Thornton. The band is now on their second album and this one is packed with action especially if you are on a drive around the Country this should be your next album in the collection. So many infuences from Hank WIlliams all the way to Dinosaur Jr. with controversial tracks like “Guns” and great anthology tracks like “Cow.” And there are still 20 more tracks to listen to. One of our favorites personally are “Guns” as well as “Derby” we feel the album is a complete reason to be proud of being American…and if you own the flag you should consider making a purchase of the new album. Don’t miss the CD Release show Friday May 27, 2016 at The Feed N Seed in Lafayette, LA click here to view the event. The band will also have The Sour Sedans on stage with them so get readyfor a great night with great Louisiana music.

It was a pleasure purchasing Mike Dean’s new LIVE album a week ago at the CD Release in Lafayette, LA. We were able to hear great new tracks “Cool Weather” and “Cincinnati” as well as one of our favorites from the band “Atchafalaya.” So we decided to invite Buck Verret and Mike Dean to RadioLouisiana in the Oil Center for an interview to kick off another great hour of learning about many reasons for writing great music behind the man himself. We always enjoy hearing what sparked such great music in the Acadiana area, and this great interview, and CD are no exception. Do yourself a huge favor and purchase the new CD for your car or home…if you enjoy a great Louisiana relaxed sound of inspired tracks of the cities you love in Louisiana and beyond you will love this new LIVE album. We recommend it heavily and will also be playing four tracks on the album in regular rotation on RadioLouisiana.com. Click the picture to the right and be directed to new shows and great music from a local artist that will inspire you every time you click play. We appreciate the guys taking the time out of their busy schedules to come in this week!
