“If being an egomaniac means I believe in what I do and in my art or music, then in that respect you can call me that… I believe in what I do, and I’ll say it.” ― John Lennon

Welcome to rayjmusic.co.uk

My name is Ray Johnson and I love music ! I love listening to music, playing my guitars and keyboard and composing music. I’m not a professional musician, far from it, but I like to chat to creative people who have a sparkle in their eyes when they talk about music.

That’s why I have created this website (fortunately my day job is web designer) as I would like to share my music and create a forum where I can endeavour to build a community of like minded people. All of my music tracks are available to listen to on the site. 

Let me be straight with you here, I’m just a guy in a home studio playing. I don’t take it seriously, I don’t want to make a living from it, I just want to be creative and create unique music which I can listen to and say “I did that”. Good or bad, it is mine lol ! Anyway feel free to get in touch and tell me what you are up to even if you don’t compose or play but just love music. Let me know what you think of my loops and tracks. I don’t mind constructive criticism, in fact I welcome it as it’s a great way to learn, but they are my babies so please don’t be too rough on me lol.

If you would like to join my community of music lovers then just go to the Login page and register and you will be able to leave comments on the Blog page.
