Jeff Ray on SoundBetter

I've been writing and creating hip hop music for 15 years. I also produce music for podcast/comedy/commercial projects. When I'm not making music, I create visual content. Let's work!

Hi, I'm Jeff. I'm a rapper/songwriter who can create clever, thoughtful and heartfelt lyrics.

I specialize in lyrical, introspective rap songs as well as comedy/parody songs and commercial jingles.

Contact me to discuss your idea and I will help you bring it to life. I'm available as a writer, a co-author or a feature for your song.

Please tell me about your concept and any additional information you can provide and I will work with you to create a great product.

Feel free to hit me up and ask any questions to see if we would be a good fit for your project or to collaborate.

*I'm here primarily as a Rapper/Songwriter, but I also produce beats. Instrumental samples are available to listen here:

    Jeff is a true professional. Had a great experience with him working on a track. Great communication, clear with timelines, and of course the end product was fire. Will be a repeat customer for sure.

Interview with Jeff Ray

  1. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  2. A: Songwriting (rap) Vocal Performance (rap)

  3. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  4. A: Rick Ross Aesop Rock MixedbyAli Rick Rubin Schoolboy Q DJ Toomp Cyhi Alchemist Dom Kennedy Curren$y Matt McGhee Stephen Redhead Donald Glover

  5. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  6. A: I submitted instrumental music that was placed in a Narrative Fiction Podcast called 'The Football Battalion' about soccer-playing soldiers in WW1(apparently the battalion itself was real, but the writer/producer created a fiction story based on the real events). It premiered on one of the biggest soccer podcasts around, Men in Blazers. While that's pretty cool, I am most proud of how I was able to produce an instrumental for it based off the vibe the producer requested, and nail it.

  7. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  8. A: I'm currently working on a batch of new solo songs to release in 2023 as well as more beats that I would like to submit to sync libraries or find artists to collaborate with.

  9. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  10. A: Stephen Redhead

  11. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  12. A: I don't think there's a need to choose. I use a Presonus Analog Preamp and compressor which runs into my USB interface. That allows me to get a unique vocal sound when working from my home studio. I have a digital camera for my photography work, but I still use a film camera when I get that itch as well.

  13. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  14. A: I love being able to think of an idea and follow it until I have a final product. Listening to a completed song or beat, is just as satisfying as looking at a music video I just finished editing or eating an excellent meal I just prepared.

  15. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  16. A: I'm also a video professional in my life, so I would ask similar questions to clients here. I will ask about what means something to you. What you want the song to say, what emotion or vibe you want to invoke. I might ask you for details if you want a personal song or something with storytelling. I basically want to pick your brain and get to know you as much as I can before we start, so I can approach your project with the same sort of thoughtfulness and introspection that I approach my own.

  17. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  18. A: I'd love to work with Rick Ross in the studio. I'm a huge fan of his writing so id love to just observe and learn from his process.

  19. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  20. A: Hip-hop is my main genre, but I grew up playing classical music and listening to soul music with my dad. My brother and close friends got me into rap, rock, indie, and drum and bass music, so I'm grateful for all I've been exposed to.

  21. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  22. A: I think I bring a unique approach to lyrics. In my personal work, my lyrics and songwriting tend to serve as a personal journal or document of my life. I like to bring that sort of honesty, along with quirky creativity to the projects I'll create for my clients as well. I want to help you make something that is authentic to you, while still being of high creative caliber.
