“Think for Yourself” is the latest written, produced, performed by Ray Gilman. His 8 year old Grandaugter Anissya Martinez is always hanging around the studio so Ray recruited her to sing the high vocal harmony on “Feel the Driving Rain.” Even though Ray had 3 vaccinations he contracted covid during the sessions and was ill as he was tracking the song “Natural World.” “I finished doing the vocals the last possible day as the virus kicked in and trashed my voice for a while” “Natural World.” talks about how we should step outside and appreciate this beautiful blue planet we live on and turn off the computers for a while. The album deals with the age of artificial intelligence that influences what we buy, what we like and who we vote for. There is talk of people getting computer chips implanted in their brains which the song “Artificial Intelligence” talks about.
Ray Gilman: vocals, guitars, bass, keyboards, drums.
