Most musicians wait until adulthood to begin their career. However, seventeen-year-old Ray Goren has entered the music world with a sound of his own. Goren plays the guitar, keyboard and sings vocals.

        Goren began playing the guitar when he was only eight years old. He performed across the United States, and he shared stages with some of the biggest names in rock, such as The Doors. His career took a turn when he met musician and songwriter Leon Russel. Goren began to write his own songs with the help of Russel and in late 2017, Goren released his debut album Me, which contains eleven songs. Perhaps the most notable thing about Goren is how diverse his new sound is. He has broken away from his typical style of classic rock to pursue a sound that is just as much rock as it is R&B or pop.

        Some people say, ‘Oh, he’s getting away from…’ whatever it is that they box me into. But I feel that the only way you keep this music alive is by doing it in a modern way,” said Goren in an interview with Guitar World.

        His instrumentals sound as if a New York dance club and a Western saloon crossed over, and his vocals range from white-boy raps to passionate power ballads. No matter the song, Goren’s music is guaranteed to make the listener feel his emotion, whether it is sorrowful and reflective, or upbeat and inspirational. Goren is a renaissance man in a lot of ways; he is not only a guitar prodigy, but he is now a singer who has molded his own sound. Goren is about to revolutionize the music industry, before he is even old enough to vote.
