Philip Ray: Sampler (EP) (Rhythm City Records, 2005)

From California, here is a further male neo soul artist to bring a whole new flavor to your ear. His LP “Fall of The Bling Dynasty” was passionate blend of contemporary R&B, neo and acoustic soul with original tracks and covers from Donny Hathaway (“Giving Up (Is So Hard to Do)” Cindy Lauper (“True Colors”) and even Radio Head (“Creep”). Unfortunately, I can’t find much information about him but as from the back of his EP, he identified as a “self-taught singer/songwriter” with a “classic” edge.
