60 YEARS OF MUSIC MAKING!
Ray Fenwick was one of Britain’s foremost guitarists, session players and producers. He was also a talented songwriter and co-wrote the signature tune to the 1970’s cult TV show “Magpie”, amongst others.
He has been involved in many innovative projects, including “The Guitar Orchestra” and “Wind In The Willows”. He was Samantha Fox‘s first producer. Ray is perhaps the only English rock musician who has successfully worked in Holland and tasted success with Dutch bands, Tee Set and After Tea.
Due to his association with Roger Glover, Jon Lord and Ian Gillan in the seventies, he has now become part of the “Purple” family.
A brilliant all-rounder, with an enviable rock pedigree. Ray Fenwick.
Most recently Ray has been working with dance/electronic musicians David Harks and Garry Cobain (The Amorphous Androgynous), showing that 60 years on he is still at the cutting edge.
Ray’s website gives access to a potted history from the 1960s onwards, and signposts recent releases.
April 2021 saw the release of a definitive anthology of Ray’s work: Playing Through The Changes via Cherry Red Records.
