ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ray Viera was born in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico. Since childhood he has listened to the recordings of the great "Soneros", such as Hector Lavoe, Ismael Rivera, Ismael Miranda, Chamaco Ramirez and Marvin Santiago. Collectively, these artists have inspired Ray to pursue his goals, combining their musical influences into his own vocal style and sensibility. At the age of 11, Ray was sent to live with his father in the "Barrio" of Philadelphia. Although he lived outside of his native Puerto Rico, he never lost his cultural roots and musical influences. As he grew older, he often sang in local bars and family gatherings. Consequently, his talents and magnetism were soon noticed as he began to sing with various Latin music groups. Ray has worked with many Latin music legends, including Johnny Pacheco, Celia Cruz, Yomo Toro, Adalberto Santiago, Papo Lucca, Justo Betancourt, Eddie Palmieri, Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Jimmy Bosch, Chino Nunez and many other greats. He recorded his first album for ATI Records in 1997 produced by Johnny Pacheco with Jovanny Diaz and his Orchestra. Ray has also recorded background vocals in various genres, including the soundtrack of an Off-Broadway musical entitled "Quien Mato a Hector Lavoe" starring Domingo Quinones, that would be later become a major motion picture staring Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony titled “El Cantante”. He also sang background vocals for Celia Cruz's "La Negra Tiene Tumbao", her final CD, and both Eddie Palmieri's 40th anniversary CD, "La Perfecta II" and "Ritmo Caliente", and is the lead singer in Johnny Pacheco's 50th anniversary CD "Entre Amigos"(2004). He also participated in Ricky Gonzalez's "Oasis", singing lead in the songs "Timbalero" and "Ya Era Tiempo". Over the years, he has toured throughout the United States, Mexico, South America and Europe. While striving to realize his dreams, he has continually performed with intense passion and emotion. Many consider Ray one of the new generation of "Soneros" who can blend the traditional style of singing with the flexibility of a crooner and a progressive, modern outlook. After many years of being in a background role to some of Salsas greatest legends, Ray released his debut album, Aqui Esta Ray Viera in 2002. Where he also shows his talent as composer in songs like "Lo Mio Es Cantar", "Borinquen y Cubanacan", and "Corazon Cerrado". He also composed "Tun Tun Suena El Tambor" in Spanish Harlem Orchestra's album "Across 110th Street". Ray has been a lead singer for the legenday Johnny Pacheco's Tumbao Anejo since 1998. Now he presents his latest endeavor, a refreshing and swinging production titled “TROMBAO” which he produced and where he composes nine of the ten songs.

Ray Viera nació en Rió Piedras, Puerto Rico y luego fue trasladado a la ciudad de Filadelfia, Pennsylvania cuando apenas tenia unos 11 años de edad. Desde muy temprana edad cultivó su amor por la música latina, escuchando los grandes soneros de su época y de los tiempos pasados. El nombra a Héctor Lavoe, Ismael Rivera, Pete "El Conde" Rodriguez, Ismael Miranda, Chamaco Ramírez, y a Marvin Santiago como sus mayores influencias en su desarrollo como cantante e interprete del género musical conocido como Salsa. Desde joven demostró su don de cantar, primero en fiestas familiares, y luego en las tabernas locales de la ciudad. Su talento fue eventualmente reconocido y empezó a ser contratado para cantar con varios grupos musicales Latinos. Ray a tenido la oportunidad de trabajar con muchas leyendas de la Salsa, incluyendo Papo Lucca, Eddie Palmieri, Justo Betancourt, Celia Cruz, Johnny Pacheco, y muchos otros intérpretes ilustres de la música latina. En el 1997 grabó un álbum con Jovanny Díaz y su orquesta bajo el sello discográfico ATI, producido por Johnny Pacheco. Su voz también se puede escuchar en el álbum que acompaño el estreno de la obra musical “Quien Mato a Héctor Lavoe”; inclusive, el mas reciente disco grabado por Celia Cruz (La Negra Tiene Tumbao), y también los CD’s que celebraron los recuerdos de "La Perfecta" de Eddie Palmieri y con Johnny Pacheco como cantante principal, el disco "Entre Amigos" respectivamente. Tambien participo en al disco "Oasis" de Ricky Gonzalez cantando los temas "Timbalero" y "Ya era Tiempo". En su carrera musical, Ray a tenido la oportunidad de llevar su voz a varios países del mundo, incluyendo su país natal, a México, América del Sur, y Europa. Después de muchos años apoyando con su voz a muchos de los cantantes mas ilustres del género salsero, Ray, en el 2002 decidio estrenar su propio álbum, titulado Aquí Esta Ray Viera. Y es aquí que Ray nos da el placer de escuchar su potente voz, y nos demuestra su habilidad de mezclar los sonidos tradicionales de la Salsa con el ritmo salsero contemporáneo. Ray tambien es un talentoso compositor, lo ha demostrado con canciones como "Lo Mio Es Cantar", "Borinquen y Cubanacan", "Corazon Cerrado" de el disco "Aqui Esta Ray Viera" y tambien "Tun Tun Suena El Tambor" de el album "Across 110th Street" de la Spanish Harlem Orchestra. Ray ha sido cantante principal de el Tumbao Anejo de el legendario Johnny Pacheco desde el 1998. Ahora ha lanzado una nueva produccion llena de swing y sabor titulada “TROMBAO” cual el produjo y donde compuso nueve de diez temas.
