Ray Wylie Hubbard describes him as a "scrapper poet with the devil-may-care wherewithal" whose "ragged-but-right vocals and lyrical wits continue to get better and better with age." Ray has been performing and writing songs since the '60s. Well known for penning the words to "Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother," made famous by Jerry Jeff Walker, Ray has come from "the wild and wooly cosmic/outlaw Texas country scene of the '70s" to being "one of the most respected artists on the modern Americana scene."

His most recent album, The Ruffians Misfortune, picks up right where The Grifters Hymnal left off, with Hubbard and his wrecking crew confidently jumping from jagged, wicked-cool roots rock, and riotous Mississippi and Texas blues. The songs themselves are rife with wayward souls worthy of both words in the albums title  sinners, luckless gamblers, drunks, thieves, and at least one beautiful, fierce woman. As narrator and guide, Hubbard doles out more empathy than judgment for the whole motley lot, but his words sting like grit in open wounds just the same. As he puts it rather ominously in the theme-setting opener, All Loose Things, The gods cant save us from ourselves.
