About Sugaray Rayford

Bold and full-bodied vocalist Sugaray Rayford blends the passion and power of the blues with the melodies of vintage soul and the earthy grooves of funk and R&B. Growing up in Texas, Rayford first learned to perform in church, and if his sound changed with time, the fervor of his performances shows a clear connection to gospel traditions: He can sing songs with a message just as comfortably as he can tell listeners about good love and hard times. Rayford made his solo debut with 2010's Blind Alley, he made the blues community take notice with 2017's acclaimed The World That We Live In, and 2019's well-crafted and soulful Somebody Save Me earned him his first Grammy nomination. 2022's In Too Deep wed neo-psychedelia, retro soul, blues, and funky, gritty R&B.
