Sugaray Rayford (from the album Somebody Save Me available on Forty Below Records)
A simple plea becomes the album title on the recent release from Sugaray Rayford. The soul of the man asks “Somebody Save Me” in the title track, Sugaray Rayford pouring it all in for the request as a solid rhythm keeps his feet moving forward despite the pain while lush strings comfort him and the sweet sound of California Soul fills the air. Somebody Save Me stands tall with equal blasts of rhythm and of Blues. Sugaray Rayford struts in to offer the advice of experience in “Sometimes You Get the Bear (and Sometimes the Bear Gets You)” while Somebody Save Me shows tenderness when fronting is replaced by frankness in “My Cards are On the Table” as us against them gets real when “Angels and Devils” face off.
We all do what we can to power past troubles both personal and political. Sugaray Rayford uses the clarion call of a mighty voice to form a line as he points fingers and shows steps to take for change in “Time to Get Movin’”. Produced by Forty Below Records head honcho Eric Corne, Somebody Save Me collects songs from the pen of its producer with Sugaray Rayford putting a heartbeat into the stories as he vows “I’d Kill for You, Honey”, takes on the role of “The Revelator” on a threatening groove, and shines a light into shadowy decisions with “Dark Night of the Soul”.
