UNDER CONSTRUCTION


It may sometimes seem that the only music you can find on the Billboard music charts is by "bubblegum" artists like Britney Spears or N Synch, which can get old quickly. But the last decade or so of Billboard music charts is a vast cavern with many nooks and crannies, some of which you may not have discovered yet. One of those often hidden corners -- the Billboard Adult Contemporary / New Age Music Charts -- contains some delightful treasures from three-time Billboard winner,Ray Lynchwhose albums have sold in excess of 2 million copies.

     Respected throughout the music industry as a trendsetter and compositional genius, Billboard artist Ray Lynch has resisted the pressure to serve up albums in rapid-fire succession, choosing instead to take the high road, assuring that each Adult Contemporary/New Age release captures most closely the original spirit and intent of the project.

Bruce Rockwell, Magical Blend Magazine

     Though he's one of the most influential artists in "new-age pop" and adult-alternative circles, Lynch has extensive formal music training. . . . Growing numbers of listeners seem attracted to his vibrant electronic textures and heartrending melodies.

Linda Kohanov, All Music Guide


Experience the music of imagination with Billboard artist Ray Lynch:

With album sales in excess of two million copies worldwide (without performing), Billboard artist Ray Lynch is one of the top-selling "Adult Contemporary / New Age" musicians. Through word-of-mouth alone, Deep Breakfast became a classic of the New Age genre, and was the first New Age independently produced album to go Gold, and later became the first independently produced New Age album to be certified Platinum by the R.I.A.A. Lynch has won three New Age Billboard music awards, and all of his albums have been in prominent charting positions on Billboard's New Age music charts.

Billboard's New Age album of the year. Each composition begins with clear, evocative melodies that gradually unfold, revealing a wide range of strength and beauty. The theme is a play upon masculine and feminine elements and the emotional beauty of the music is truly uplifting. This album jumped quickly onto Billboard's New Age Music Chart, stayed there for 122 weeks and won its award for Billboard New Age Album of the Year in 1989. That same year, and again in 1990, Ray won Billboard's Music Award for New Age Artist of the Year. Features guitar, violin, flute, viola, oboe, cello, English horn, and keyboards.

One of the top 10 New Age albums of all time. Ray's most recent album. Here you'll find nine truly great (and digitally remastered!) pieces from Ray's prior four albums -- including the Billboard Music Award winning No Blue Thing, and the #1 album on the Billboard music chart for adult-alternative music, Nothing Above My Shoulders but the Evening. You'll also find two exquisite new compositions, "Ralph's Rhapsody" and "The Music of What Happens", plus a great dance remix of "Celestial Soda Pop " Ray Lynch Best Of is included in Express.com's Top Ten New Age albums of all time:

 

The great recluse of New Age music, synthesist/composer Ray Lynch has been holed up in his northern California home studio for years, spinning out masterful miniatures, while steadfastly refusing to tour or score films. This album lives up to its title, serving up the finest of Lynch's diverse oeuvre, from the jocular “Ralph's Rhapsody” to the synthesized mini-symphony “The True Spirit of Mom & Dad.” The platinum-selling multiple-Billboard Award winner enjoyed one sizeable hit in his career, the witty “Celestial Soda Pop” (you'll recognize it), but turn to tracks like “The Temple” or “The Oh of Pleasure” to experience Lynch's unfettered genius for maximizing tonal space.

Nothing Above My Shoulders but the Evening

This masterful album offers a musical depth, structural sophistication and emotional richness that summarizes Ray's classical background. It marks the completion of a major phase of his artistic work. " The Vanished Gardens of Cordoba ", the most orchestral piece Ray has done, expresses the majesty and the melancholy of incarnation, the paradox of human existence with both the promise of possible transcendence and inevitable mortality (with all the melancholy attending the perception of a paradise lost). Passionate and stirring melodies with members of the San Francisco Symphony on flute, English horn, oboe, solo strings, guitars, piano, brass, and his trademark richly textured keyboards.
