Welcome to my website!

My name is David Michael Cray and I am primarily a N.C.-based classical guitarist, but I also play many other instruments like the electric guitar, bass, keyboards, saxophone, balalaika, harmonica, percussion and mandolin.  I also am a published poet with a couple of award-type recognitions and am a recording engineer.  I come from a family that is actually filled to the brim with talent as well with around 13 professional-level musicians in my extended family including: guitarists, a trombone player/Band Director, many great singers including an opera singer/music school owner and teacher, and an actor/singer/saxophone player that was on Broadway and played with Steve Miller Band once.  There are photographers and painters and writers and talented decorators as well! I have had the nickname of Crayfish by some people while I was growing up and they are part of the Crayfish Clan’s extended family.  On this website, you can find information about myself and the albums, books, and other projects I have worked on as well as my classical guitar performances and other events that I am involved with throughout the year.  I also talk about some of the wellness tools I have learned and taught in my studies of mental, physical and spiritual health and well-being in my blog and other places on this site.

However, I consider everyone already part of my extended-extended family of the Crayfish Clan.  We are all under one Heavenly Father (He’s probably a lot less pinchy of a CrawDad type than most of us Crayfish.  Ha! Ha!).  But, if you would like to get a little more acquainted with the Crayfish Clan and make your membership official you can join my email list and receive: Special deals and discounts on my music, books, and stuff; early access to releases; more information on Crayfish type people; some poetry; tips for mental, physical and spiritual well-being; and freeeeeee stuff including two free tracks off of every full-length album(with ten tracks or more) that I release!  I have one full-length album that came out on November 30th called “Little Miracles”, another coming soon, and one more album I am working on for after that so that will be 6 free music tracks at least with my email list!



So make sure you pinch those free tracks by signing up below!

Page Photo I call Stream of Abundance (2017 Hungry Mother State Park) is also by Dianne Dailey Cray.  I put this on my home page because I believe that having God in my life makes it so that I have access to abundance of everything I need, even if I don’t always have what I want.  We all just have to keep learning to want what we need instead of the things that aren’t best for us.
