Caleb Ray is a man that wears many hats, some of which include being a worship leader, a singer/songwriter, a recording artist, and a front man for not one, but two bands. Since he first began writing and performing in 2006, Caleb has shown himself to be very skilled in creating contagious, upbeat Christian acoustic/pop/rock music with loveable melodies and lyrics that pull on your heartstrings.
In 2008, Caleb released his first album, Acoustical, which was recorded in the comfort of his own bedroom. Quickly after releasing that album, he assembled a three-piece band and started touring. Two years later, Caleb released The Wake Up EP, graduated from Western Oregon University, and resumed with his writing, recording, and touring. In 2012, he started up a new side project called Panda Panda! and released The Black & White EP, which demonstrated his deep appreciation for all things rock, pop, hip-hop, and electronic. In November 2013, Caleb released a full length album, This Little Light, along with his single, “Yours to Hold”, which went on to reach #16 on the Christians charts.
Though Caleb takes his songwriting very seriously, concerts with his four-piece band show that they also take fun seriously. The Caleb Ray Band brings a live performance that is upbeat, elevating and infectious, with a large emphasis on audience participation. In addition to their high energy rock shows, they also provide a fantastic and entirely unique worship experience.
Caleb has performed over 150+ shows with his band, and has shared the stage with a large variery of artists, including Switchfoot, Newsboys, Crowder, Relient K, Family Force 5, Jordan Feliz, Five Iron Frenzy, Kutless, Building 429, Ryan Stevenson, Lincoln Brewster, Love & The Outcome, Aaron Shust, Jason Gray, Todd Agnew, Paul Wright, ROOTDOWN, SONSOFDAY, Falling Up, The Incandescent, The Exchange, and Josiah James. Caleb and his band have been touring the west coast, performing various festivals, including main stage at CreationFest NW and Joshuafest, with hopes of branching out and touring on a national scale in 2018.
