The composer and producer of electronic dance music known as Jeff Gray has released his latest single, “The Stories,” featuring Corey Friesenhan. The track has been proudly published as an independent release entirely without financial backing from the corporate music industry. Spacious and ethereal, rhythmic and buoyant, vivifying and full of drum 'n' bass, “The Stories” is a single which helps define the signature Australian EDM sound called Melbourne bounce.
The DJ from southeastern Australia cites as main artistic influences many of the world's most respected contemporary digital musicians, such as Avicci, Will Sparks, Calvin Harris, Joel Fletcher, SWM, TJR, and Reece Low. Gray's own style, however, is only tinted by such inspirations, having an overall color which takes its hue from the sonic culture of his locale.
After leaving the New South Wales Police Force, Gray began performing as a DJ all around the area's best dance clubs. His official bio states that “Jeff Gray earned his stripes at venues such as the Goulburn Workers Club, the Burns Club in Canberra, the Mittagong RSL Club and various other venues in Goulburn, the Southern Highlands, and the Australian Capital Territory.”
Gray picked up music at the age of seven, beginning with guitar. When the rest of his life got in the way of his music, it would take many years before working as a disc jockey for parties and clubs started his creative machinery whirling again.
“I enjoy playing and making music that makes me feel good,” he writes. “If I can replicate that feeling in others, then that's a bonus. Music should always be a visceral experience and I hope to invoke many different emotions with music I play and produce.”
Jeff Gray has been producing music now since 2011. His featured musician on “The Stories,” Corey Friesenhan, is a seasoned producer in his own right and will release the second volume of his popular vocal sessions collection, “Banshee,” in October of 2014.
“The Stories” by Jeff Gray featuring Corey Friesenhan is available online worldwide.
