The album, Out of the Shadows, was born of a lifelong friendship between two men who have never stopped singing, writing, and playing the music that they love. Jerry Brown and Jay Ramsey met on the campus of North Texas State University several decades ago. With three other like-minded musical friends, they made notes go places. The band was called The Expressions. Signed by Sinatra's Reprise Records, and later United Artists, Mercury, Smash, Casablanca, and ABC Dunhill. They toured the U.S. and Canada. The reviews were phenomenonal, the following huge. They turned people's heads with unbelievable arrangements of songs and super-tight harmonies, then mixed it up with comedy, camaraderie, and testosterone. Blew minds. It was beautiful for 12 years.
Life, families, and focus took the guys in separate directions, but the friendships never faded. Individually they continued their careers in music while writing and publishing original songs and scores for artists, movies, television, and commercials. Now the best friends are back together again as The Back In Time Blues Band. Two absolute pros - back in time. Out of the Shadows is a blending of unforgettable originals, down home blues, soulful and funky R&B.
