Ray Davies, one of the most successful and influential songwriters to emerge from the British music scene of the 1960s, founded the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame rock band The Kinks with his brother Dave in 1963. The band’s string of top ten international hits began with “You Really Got Me”, followed by “All Day and All of The Night”, “Tired of Waiting”, “Set Me Free”, “See My Friends”, “Till The End of The Day”, “A Well Respected Man”, “Lola”, “Sunny Afternoon”, “Dedicated Follower of Fashion”, “Apeman”, and “Come Dancing” among many others. In the US The Kinks had five Top 10 Billboard hits with “You Really Got Me,” “All Day and All Of The night,” “Tired Of Waiting For You,” “Lola” and “Come Dancing” as well as six top 20 Billboard albums: Kink-Size, Kinks Greatest Hits, Low Budget, One For The Road, Give The People What They Want and State Of Confusion. Following the initial British Invasion, further US success continued with The Kinks becoming a major act over the next two decades.

In 1998 Davies embarked on a solo career releasing Storyteller, a CD based on narratives and music from his one-man show of the same name, which aired on VH1. The album also culled material from Davies semi-fictional unauthorized autobiography, X-Ray. In 2006, Davies released his first solo studio album Other People’s Lives.

Following the success touring the states solo in support of Other People’s Lives, Ray turned his experiences into music creating Working Man’s Café. The album, recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, features 12 stellar songs written by Davies and co- produced with Ray Kennedy (Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle.) Working Man’s Café comes only 18 months after the release of Other People’s Lives and looks set to be one of the definitive albums of his illustrious career.

Affectionately referred to as the “Godfather of Brit Pop”, Ray Davies is cited as a major influence on artists such as Pete Townshend, Paul Weller, Morrissey, Damon Albarn of Blur and many more. Ray Davies’ songs have become hits for bands including The Jam, Van Halen, The Pretenders and The Stranglers.
