Note*  COVID-19 has effected all of us, and I'm hoping that 2021 will bring us all back to being normal again. Normal for me is playing "LIVE" music, which I haven't done since March 14, 2020. So...I've set up this DONATION account through PayPal, and I'll be showing my Facebook "live" shows here on my website. Fill free to give and share the link, if you are so inclined. I graciously thank you for your support!

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.

Check out my recording history and see many of the top-of-the-line musicians and bands that I've had the pleasure of working with -

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.

 Contact me for studio session work. mail: steve@stevemcray.com / 678-824-4115

I am happy to come to your physical location or virtually record sessions from my home studio.
