American Beauties ~ Folk Rock Recording Artists Special Guest On 10/17/2023
American Beauties sophomore release includes 11 original songs written by singer-songwriter-guitarist Michael Gray. The songs reflect on the human need for love and stability in the wake of life’s unrelenting pressures and tackle difficult subjects with an overriding theme of hope. The first single “The Rain” was written at a time when many close friends and family were going through difficult times and became a song of empathy and encouragement for them to find their footing. The record was released to college and public radio on June 6, 2023 and is available for streaming and downloads on digital music platforms worldwide.
