Horace Bray is an NYC based singer-songwriter and instrumentalist. Coming from a background in jazz and improvised music, Horace has become a staple in the New York music scene, playing regularly with artists like John Splithoff, Michael Blume, and Sirintip. Over the past year, however, he began to flourish as a songwriter, preparing to step into the limelight- inspired by musicians including Sufjan Stevens, Nick Drake, and The Milk Carton Kids.
His upcoming EP features 5 tracks that that emphasize lyrical storytelling, space, and harmonic intimacy. Now, he’s ready to step out center stage and with 64k Instagram followers, he already has a hungry audience waiting to see what’s next.
Horace takes you through his daily regimen that’s designed to get the fingers and mind moving. The practice reinforces a deep knowledge of the fretboard, and progresses in difficulty. The second part explores modern tonality. If you’ve ever heard contemporary players stretching the sound of a simple chord progression and thought, “how do they do that?” — this is the “that.”
Private lessons with Horace can cover technique, songwriting, rhythm development, musicianship, and more.
