I’ve sung the praises of Horace Bray here before (and booked he and some of his friends twice in the same day this last year during SXSW). The recent University of North Texas music school grad is a great guitarist with a steadily expanding voice that’s always a pleasure to hear. For his senior recital, Bray put together a band of his usual equally talented compatriots — pianist Addison Frei, bassist Mike Luzecky, and drummer Matt Young — for a set of songs that are already catchy enough to probably become standards given enough time. Check out the pay-what-you-want-priced Bandcamp album after the jump.
