Sister Ray to record live cd
A four-piece alternative folk rock band from Salem, Sister Ray is working on producing material for their second album.
“One Thousand Shades of Sunshine,” their first CD of 10 tracks, was recorded last summer with band members Justin Miller on guitar, vocals and keyboard; Ben Bond, guitar and harmonica; Matt Hall, bass and backup vocals; and Robert Harris on drums.
In an effort to begin production on their new album, Sister Ray is going to record a live album this month. They have a show scheduled at the IKE Box on September 6 where the recording will take place.
After completion of the show, a digital download will be made available a few days after the concert with photos from the same evening.

Recipe for local success
This year Eugene-based four-piece band Ingredients, who have two CDs in their discography, look to carve their way through a mass of bands who also describe their sound as indie rock.
Their first record, “Bears Following Trains,” followed by their sophomore release “cold blooded, warm breaded” reveal their psychedelic take on indie pop/rock.
According to their Myspace page, the band manages to cover a wide range of genres on their second CD, from disco on “Groovy Groovy Man” to circus music on “Freaks on Parade” (which features Tom Heinl on trombone and musical saw), without departing from their own distinctive style.
Ingredients is composed of band members Jon Timm on guitar, piano, and lead vocals; Carey Phelps on guitar, harmonica and vocals; Ethan Pierce on bass, and Bryan Wollen on drums. Voted best local rock band in 2006 and 2007 by Eugene Weekly readers, they’re bringing their own sound north this month.
The band, that also makes movies in their spare time, will be in Salem performing live at The Space on September 13 at 8:30 p.m.
