Out Passed Nowhere (features Patti Smith and Howe Gelb) — European album release on Royal Oakie date TBC. Recruited by Patti Smith in 1995, Oliver Ray went from being a New York City street poet noise guitar player to full-time member of her band for the next ten years, honing his skills as a songwriter. Ray's solo debut sees the artist emerge with what has been dubbed ‘anti-psych'. Centred around Ray’s songwriting, the album finds him backed by a kaleidoscopic array of guest performers from the Bay Area, Tucson, and NYC. Ray’s transcendent tunes are brought to life in stunning wide screen detail by members of Giant Sand, Sugar Candy Mountain, The Myrrors, Xixa, China, the legendary Howe Gelb, and a special appearance from the high priestess and poet laureate of punk herself. Patti Smith guests on Best Game In Town. The album also features Bob Dylan drummer Winston Watson on Queen of Never. Produced by Oliver Ray and the head of Royal Oakie Records David Glasebrook.
