Please join Frankie Picasso and her co-host Wendy Allyn as we stroll along the west coast and do a little California Dreaming with two singer-songwriters who call this state home, Michael Douglas Bray of Quartz Hill and David Beaudry of Santa Cruz. MICHAEL DOUGLAS BRAY- Mike grew up with solid roots and a steady diet of music when at the age of eight watching his dad and his brother Don sitting on their back porch and playing songs on his uncle’s guitar. Mike jumped at the chance to study the craft of writing, some of which included private script-writing lessons with is cousin Beth Sullivan. His first album, “Lonely at the Stop” is available now and his second album will be out soon “Cut Me Down to Size”. He will soon be recording his third album “Maintaining the Illusion”. David Beaudry- David Beaudry was born in the Echo Park district of Los Angeles. Having been raised by his mother whose descendants trace back to George Fox, the founding member of the 17th century Quakers, David learned the ways of the ways of a “Peaceful Warrior”. But at some point, he turned from those ideas and began mixing with the wrong crowd and went on to help form one of the most notorious gangs in Northeast L.A. It was this activity, along with a growing heroin addiction, that landed David in the California Youth Authority (youth prison) at the age of 13. It was here where he wrote his first song. David has long turned from the destructive behavior and through his music and a strong, intuitive sense of his own blend of spirituality; he now uses his music and life experiences to help others. David has written songs for B.M.G. and a few other publishers. In 2008, one of his songs "Kingdom Come" was used on HD net T.V. and later that year, his song "Outlaw Trail Concert" was used in a PBS broadcast about Jesse James and was performed by the band Confederate Railroad. His album “Alien Man” highlights some of the very best in original, melodic and story-driven songs.
