Johnny Cash once said, “In my opinion, Luis Rey is a cut far above average.”
Luis Rey is that rare artist who captures the hearts of all who see and hear him, his golden voice, and his powerful songs. Indeed, Luis’ down-to-earth persona provides that special (yet unusual) vehicle through which his musicianship, masterful songwriting, and exceptional voice emanate. This enables him to occupy that special (but difficult to attain) space in the market: the space to be a musical artist to whom music fans can personally relate.
How does Luis accomplish this? For starters, his highly charismatic, honest, and heart-felt presentation serves as a unifying platform from which he can inspire and motivate others. As a result, Luis lives his own dream; the dream of helping people to live their lives in freedom by living the life they want.
Music has always been present in the life of Luis Rey. From a young age, he was involved in the theater where has worked as a singer, actor, writer, and producer for plays and musicals. As a young adult, Luis performed music and began to write songs. During this time, he lived in his home state of Texas as well as in Nashville, where was an up-and-coming recording artist, songwriter, and respected member of the city’s music industry community. Luis toured with his own band, peformed in venues that ranged small to large, and opened for several top-tier artists (including The Dixie Chicks, LeAnn Rimes, Eddie Rabbit, BJ Thomas, and Crystal Gayle) in front of crowds that surpassed 17,000.
Although Luis continued to write and perform, he made the conscious decision to step away from the entertainment industry so that he and his wife could start a family.
In 2014, after experiencing a life-coach program that literally changed his life, Luis reconnected with and recommitted to the original “Luis Rey Dream”: to build a business and career around his musical artistry through which to lead, inspire, and motivate others to live their dreams.
In late 2015, Luis sold his home in San Antonio, TX, and, with his wife and children, returned to Nashville. In this new chapter and by making this move, Luis took a giant leap of faith, a step that shows the seriousness with which he is pursuing his goals to touch people’s hearts with his music. With the release of his debut EP in February 2017, it is already clear that there is a place in the market for what Luis has to offer. There is no one else like him out there.
He is currently writing with some of the industries top writers, a testament to his songwriting ability, and was recently named "One to Watch" through the prestigious NSAI (Nashville Songwriter's Association International). He has a growing fan-base with a tremendous demand as a performer because of his ability to connect with an audience through great songs, powerhouse vocals, and high energy.
