Ray on Alias
The featured song is from his acclaimed debut album, "Trouble", which has launched him far beyond his wildest expectations. His music is categorized as folk, but I assure you that it is anything but simple coffee shop guitar stuff. Not to reiterate a previously written article on Ray, but his album was four years in the making and released on September 14th of last year. Though in those six month, Ray has been received with more critical acclaim than most artists can hope for in four years.
If you haven't yet heard his music than catching a taste of it on tonight's episode of Alias is quite a must, and if you have, well then it might just be interesting to hear his music played over film.

I myself watched tickets for only a couple of days (for his Hollywood show),
before they sold out. But not to fret, or at least too much, you can check
