RAY HARRIS & THE FUSION EXPERIENCE updatesPublished on Lunedì, 17 Maggio 2010
RAY HARRIS & THE FUSION EXPERIENCE joined Record Kicks earlier in the year to seal the deal on an official International release of their self-titled debut album, out now on CD/Digital Download in all the best stores of the planet. Anticipated by the "Scaramunga EP", which has been steadily remaining in the top positions on the best-selling funk singles chart on Juno for various months, Ray Harris' full-length has been received with quite some enthusiasm from radios, DJs, and aficionados alike.
Not only has the Ray Harris & The Fusion Experience album been a featured new R&B/Soul release on iTunes UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and more, but radio support has also been extensive, with tracks getting airplay on Mark Lamarr's "God's Jukebox" on BBC 2, Craig Charles' "Funk & Soul Show" on BBC 6, Oliver Korthals' "Out Of Spectrum" on Byte FM, Pete Isaac's "Jelly Jazz Radio" on Phonic FM, and "Afrobase" on Totally Radio, just to name a few.
To catch Ray Harris & The Fusion Experience delivering their soulful jazz sessions live and direct, check out their UK tour 2010, which will see them performing in a variety of venues, from the Marlborough International Jazz Festival, to the Glasgow International Festival, the Wee Chill Festival, and more.
