“Love Me Dearly” by Ray Wild
This songs starts off slow but eventually picks up, and the vocals are a dynamic combination of quiet and loud, leaving you wanting more.
“Clockwise” by Ray Wild
This funky song from the 2015 album Good Fortune is a fun way to get to know Ray Wild’s style. The song has strong vocals, and the drummer is great.
“Eldumpsterino” by Dumpster Kitty
“Eldumpsterino,” found on Dumpster Kitty’s Facebook page, is a mix of Latin influence and jazz. The trombone is also a really cool addition to this song, making the last minute and a half even better.

“Babe I’m Gonna Leave You” by Led Zeppelin
Almost 50 years after this song came out, it’s still popular among rock fans. Ray Wild was inspired by Led Zeppelin, and this song definitely gave way to the work the band is producing now.
“Rocky Mountain Way” by Joe Walsh
This song incorporates some of the bluesy vibes you get from “Eldumpsterino.” There’s no better way to get ready for a modern recreation of ’70s rock than to listen to classic ’70s rock.
