Ray's Profile Picture

Ray

Features Editor, Warehouse

I'm a musician and artist originally from the South West coast of Scotland. I studied Visual Arts and Film Studies at the Cumbria Institute of the Arts in Carlisle, where my degree was based on Japanese cinema, the Horror genre and 20th century avant-garde painting. Outside of guitarguitar, I make music, sell paintings, and write stories. I love watching movies, reading, travelling and learning new instruments.

  • Gear I Can't Live Without

    Any fuzz pedal, Ableton Live 11, Dunlop Tortex (green, yellow and blue are all required!)

  • Essential Album

    Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness - Smashing Pumpkins

  • Best Ever Gig

    Hans Zimmer at the Hammersmith Apollo or Tom Waits at the Edinburgh Playhouse
