Overdue - Sean Michael Ray
“Overdue” is a hybrid of energetic instrumentals and great vocal tunes. Many will call it jazz, but Sean’s interest has always primarily been funk and pop. When asked why it took so long for him to produce his own CD, Sean replied “While playing with artist after artist throughout the years, I saw and heard a lot of things that I liked, and a lot that I didn't like. Those experiences shaped what eventually would become my musical vision of what I wanted to do. It just took some time to conceptualize it all.”

J-Town Beat - Hiroshima
Opening with “RED BUDDHA,” an exotic romp through Japanese Obon festivals,
electronic drums and pop, it’s filled with celebration and fun. “LOST IN
PROVENCE” is a catchy ‘road trip’ samba with a story all its own. “STATE OF MIND” is a sophisticated turn recalling the fusion of jazz and R&B. “DA KITCHEN” is funk and soul with a Hiroshima spin, and “LADY OF MYSTERY”-- June, of course-- is pure exotica. “KIMOCHI” (feeling) is a haunting, sensual mood piece and
“MEIJI MAMBO” is a funky, tongue-in-cheek rocker with a wild ending. DAYS GONE BY is a moving vocal ballad composed and sung by Terry Steele, of ‘Here and Now’ fame. “AFTERNOON KOTO” is June weaving her koto magic in a beautiful tone
poem. “CRUISIN J-TOWN” not only relates to the CD title, but is a ‘cooking’ latinrock re-make of a song from Hiroshima’s 2nd record, Obon. Finally, the powerfully emotional, “TO SAY GOODBYE,” is a beautiful treatise destined to become a Hiroshima ‘classic.
