In Nashville, Ray Sisk is a songwriting legend known for his never-give-up attitude. When Ray sings, no matter what the bar or club, heads turn and quiet ensues. His songs literally demand attention. His performances come from so deep within, audiences are quickly mesmerized. Growing up in the rural sand hills of North Carolina, Sisk developed his musical inspiration from his mother. “I was raised on traditional country, early rock and roll and folk music,” says Sisk. “My mother always sang traditional country and mountain songs and when I was just eight years old, I learned to play my older brother’s guitar.”
Songwriting became a lifelong passion after Sisk first heard Bob Dylan’s music. “This guy made songwriting seem so natural, so I wanted to try and see what I could write. My musical style is a little R&B mixed with country and rock,”
Sisk’s cut on “Words & Music Nashville;” “Memphis (Ain’t No Place to Lose the Blues)” is a clever, soulful and unique composition that deals with getting over heartbreak in the home of the blues. It’s the kind of song that feels like an instant classic the first time you hear it.
Sisk, who enjoys spending his free moments painting, sculpting and canoeing down the nearest river, wants to be remembered as a friend and as a songwriter who shared his songs with as many people as possible.
