World Premiere: Sugaray Rayford smokes on "Time To Get Movin'"

(February 21, 2019) At 6’5” and 300 pounds, Sugaray Rayford, the cigar chompin’ ex-Marine with a voice like a force of nature, holds court in any room he enters. On March 1st  Forty Below Records will release Somebody Save Me, the new studio album from the Texas-born soul blues singer. Possessing a magnetic personality, and an old school vocal style that reminds us of Clarence Carter or Joe Simon, Rayford is also a stellar dancer with moves reminiscent of the Legendary James Brown.

Somebody Save Me is an ambitious album that slides gracefully between the new blues of Gary Clarke Jr. and Fantastic Negrito and the vintage Daptones soul of the late Charles Bradley and Sharon Jones, bringing a fresh take to classic sounds.

The album features a killer band and was recorded live, giving a sweaty, urgent vibe that is tough to capture, but magic when it happens.

One of the prime cuts from the disc is “Time to Get Movin’,” a blistering tracks that belies its serious message of economic inequality with its forceful, upbeat groove: “The mansions on the hillside / Look down on homeless camps / While we’re caught in the crossfire / Lookin’ for the exit ramps”. Sugaray tells us, It’s what my heart and soul feel ! With all our leaders preaching hate and division, we the people need to get moving away from that and move together

We’re proud to present the World Premiere of “Time To Get Movin’.” Check it out below and look forward with us to the release of Somebody Save Me, coming March 1!
