Ray Cashman is a Texas Bluesman and Roots Rock -n- Roller, an interesting person as the man fits into the American roots scene perfectly. His original compilations are a Texas Gulf coast musical gumbo of sorts. His amplified sound is solid, reminiscent of a Muddy Waters presentation and his lyrics extremely expressive. Two things you can tell about the man right out of the gate is that his heart is in his music and he’s passionate about sharing the American roots sound with folks all around the world. After all that’s how he found it, that’s how his love affair with the blues began so many years ago - it was shared with him. Today, Ray passes it along both in the States and at his performances across Europe.
