Billy Bray Band is known for their energetic performances. Although the first album sounds a bit more traditional, they play a unique combination of new country with a mix of Pop and Southern Rock elements and an occasional nod to the more traditional country. Their sound is characterized by strong polyphonic vocals.
The musical mix and refreshing variations between the female and male singer gives the Billy Bray Band a place of its own in the contemporary country scene.
