Hello to all of you who have come to know me as Ray Sibley, the Musician, the Sound Engineer, Music Producer,Recording Studio Owner, the Creator of Soul Songs and Spiritual Music.
For some of you dear friends and soul family who haven't followed all of my escapades through life's adventures, I wanted to give you a little history just to catch you up to the present day.
I have always loved Music so much. Even at 5 years old, my parents would prop me up on a chair and have me sing for people. Then my first musical instrument, an accordian, at 8 years old, began my life long aspiration as a keyboard player.
As I progressed from Accordian, to Piano, to Synthesizer, I began my first Rock band, The Crescendos, in 1963.
It was all fun and exciting to play music
traveling to cities outside my LaCrosse, Wisconsin, home town.
Then in 1969, my drummer friend, Jeff Cozy and I formed a band with three others great musicians. In the months that followed our all night jam sessions and soul searching, the band eventually became known as HOPE.
You can view their story on the following web page.
The reason for me mentioning all of this is because of the innate gift of intuitive music that began to evolve and blossom within me. I could not only express my music but I soon realized that I could express yours as well.
....and the first recorded Soul Song happened in my Minneapolis recording
studio in 1999.
From these early beginnings my love for music has inspired me to become a recording artist and a sound engineer.
I feel blessed with gratitude that I can share my musical talents and gifts with all of you. And I acknowledge the Beloved Source from Whom All Blessings Flow.
The rest of the story includes going to college and seminary after HOPE and advancing in spiritual studies as I felt inspired. Here's a snapshot of some of the results of this life long pursuit to know God and know our God-Self.
I have been working at the Soul level with wonderful Souls for over 20 years. Recording over 900 personal Soul Songs for beautiful Souls from all parts of this world and beyond.
