La Quinta Blues and Brews 2012 November 17 Ray Goren Blues ProdigyYou’ve never heard a twelve-year-old play the Blues like Ray Goren! He’s been coined a genius, a prodigy, a phenomenon, and a world-class musician. Coming from Sammy Lee, a Blues harmonica player for 30 years, Ray Goren “has a whole lot of soul for a young man. He plays with a feeling. I’ve been around a whole lot of blues people. Lot of people play what they hear. He plays what he feels and you can tell.”

From the time he picked up his first guitar at age eight, to now, Ray Goren has commanded the stage at several popular Southern California Blues festivals, including Doheny Blues Festival (2012), Chicago Blues Festival (2012), Monterey Bay Blues Festival (2012), and the Detroit Jazz Festival (2011). He has also performed with world-renowned musicians including Buddy Guy, Jonny Lang and Robby Krieger.
