Seattle’s modern-day answer to Prince and Lenny Kravitz, and even the Jet City’s own Jimi Hendrix, Billy Ray Rock brings an eclectic mix of styles to his own brand of music. The “King of Ghetto Rock” cites influences as diverse as America, The Eagles, Rick James, Prince, and Billy Idol, infusing them all into one funky blend.  His newest single, “Get The Funk” from the forthcoming album, “Bad News” took Rock straight to #2 on the iTunes R&B Songs chart in South Africa, peaking at #12 All Genres.

“I’ve been talking with Billy Ray for quite some time now, and the timing was just never quite right for us to work together,” said Michael Stover of MTS. “When he reached out to me about a month ago, everything just clicked.  The music is just on fire, and I don’t know if I’ve ever seen an artist with so much passion, drive and determination.  The man is always either writing, producing or making something happen.  I’m very pleased to welcome him to the MTS Family.”
