Ray Boozer was born the son of a coal miner and a Struts waitress in the back of a 1954 Ford Country Wagon in Jacksonville, Alabama. The middle child of 13, Ray used music as a means of separating himself from his siblings, two of whom were also named Ray. He spent hours in the shed with his drumkit, guitar, bass, and microphone he bought with the money he got from his paper route and collecting soda bottles. Armed with his love of pastoral landscapes, old rusty things, and Rush, Ray set out to share his songs with Calhoun County, and perhaps the rest of the world.
Now wasn't that just the cutest fake bio ever? But until people actually know who we are enough to come read it and realize it's fake, it serves not the purpose a bio really should for an "emerging artist," i.e., a broke-ass indie band that plays music in the late 00s that went out of style in the late 90s. So, allow me to elucidate the uninitiated:
We are collectively known as Ray Boozer, but there is no one in the band actually named Ray OR Boozer. Get it? How clever! The name is a combination of family names from Jon's family tree - Ray being the first name of his favorite uncle and Boozer being the surname of the bulk of his relations in Jacksonville, Alabama. Jon may end up referring to himself as Ray onstage if people other than his friends and family end up coming to a show sometime.
