Ray D'Auria has enough energy to power a small fleet of motor vehicles. It's a fuel that burns full-throttle, ignited by the heat of his soulful voice and the power and passion of his performance. His style is unique, and has been honed over the years to what has now become the vocal force and unmistakable presence of Stir Of Echoes. Ray was introduced to Marco Ciardullo and Darryl Brown through his cousin and bass player Carmine. The chemistry amongst the members was immediate and the dynamic of Stir Of Echoes emerged.
Marco brings a rooted energetic refreshing sound of overdriven but bluesy tones that covers everything from yesterdays classics to today's new rock. He has been influenced by such acts as, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Chuck Berry and the likes of Jimi Hendrix. Born and raised in the "Hammer" this guitar player knows no boundaries.
Carmine is a groove crazy bass player that cut his teeth on the British blues rock explosion scene. His musical style transcends over two decades of relentless exploration of traditional blues, rock and roll, motown and funk. He's been influenced by past and current artists, but its apparent from his style and technique that he has the rare feel of such heavy weights as, Jack Bruce, John Entwhistle, and John Paul Jones.
Darryl is a hard hitting, solid, groove based drummer who was influenced by such bands as AC/DC, Motley Crue, The Stray Cats, Nazareth, Deep Purple, and Led Zeppelin. Darryl has toured across the country and has been performing live since the age of 12. He has a very diverse musical background, having played many styles of music, from classical & jazz to hard rock & heavy metal. Darryl's presence is eager, energetic, and explosive and he has teamed up with a group of musicians that finally share the same musical taste.
