Q Thru Z
After being introduced to each other during the creation of the band St. Somewhere, Paul and Quincy developed a musical and personal friendship that bore fruit with songs like ‘Driftin’ and ‘Deep in my Heart’. With both musicians eager for something new and exciting they have developed Ramajay Intercoastal, a blending of two unlikely but similar worlds. Their Island/Rock approach contains infectious grooves and catchy melodies balanced by intriguing lyrics.
I grew up on the beach so I guess you could describe my music as mellow, folk-style beach ballads and stories with little bit of jazz.
I spent most of my youth moving back and forth from Encinitas (North County San Diego) to Waikiki (Hawaii) and back again ... so surfing, traveling to surf, and, maybe especially, surfing really warm waters for most of my life has influenced my music.
I play guitar and ukelele and, as I mentioned, having spent a good deal of my life under the banyan trees in Waikiki, I do tend to "talk story" between songs ... sometimes even between verses!
