Ray Dylan is firmly established as one of South Africa’s favourite voices and his newest album, “Reg hier in die middel” – with heartfelt lyrics, fresh melodies and captivating rhythms – reaffirms why! Ray and his team applied their pens in communicating a wide range of feelings and moments through words and music: from loss, betrayal, a love that is not meant to be and “all the right things said and done too late”, to lighter mood party weekends, meeting the one who sweeps you off your feet at first sight and finding the match who was made especially for you.
