Session Musician

Working in the recording studio environment is definitely one of my true loves.

I really enjoy the creative process in the recording studio, either on a large or small project as both can be very satisfying. 

As a recording session musician (keyboards, pianos, electric pianos, Hammond B3, synths, and vocals) I continue to be hired to work on recording projects for other musicians, artists, bands, groups, and producers.

Call me! Hire me for your recording session!  678-824-4115 / steve@stevemcray.com

I will come to your studio, or...I can record tracks for your project remotely - just send me a stereo wave file, tell me what you want me to play, and I'll send you a wave file back!!

It's easy, and relatively CHEAP!

Through my career, I've been fortunate to have played on quite a few gold and platinum recordings.

Studio Production

As a composer and songwriter, I have spent many hours in the recording studio.

Some studio recording sessions are projects for hire, with a producer or a band - while other time is spent collaborating with other songwriters and composers for independent projects.

Currently I'm working in my studio on my original compositions, in many genres of music - Rhythm and Blues, Smooth Jazz, Soul music, Blues Rock, Rock, House music, Instrumental, Americana, Orchestral, Film and TV music, Production music @ Big Coffee Music, as well as my Healing & Meditation website.
