Pianist Jamey Ray (MM, ‘08) Profiled in New York Daily News

Jamey Ray (MM, ‘08), a graduate of Steinhardt's program in music technology, is the subject of a profile in the New York Daily News.

Ray, who was born missing his left arm below the elbow, is an accomplished pianist working on his first album with his group, The Country Band. They aim to bring country & western music to a wider audience by covering popular songs with a country twist.

A born musician, he says that his parents never treated him differently growing up. He joked that he's just had to work twice as hard "with half the equipment."
