ADY CRAMPTON CHATS TO THE STARS

Dr. Ira Raibon

October 5, 2021

Ira is a multi-instrumentalist who at the age of 14 years began teaching music and arranging scores professionally.  His first recording, as the General Soul Assembly, saw him share studios with Los Angeles outfit King George and The Fabulous Souls with whom he went onto play, teach and arrange.

As time went on, Ira taught music both privately and in schools before eventually returning to the studio with a talented group of musicians called Sweetalk.  Two songs from that period have now been released on UK label Epsilon Records on a limited press and if you’re quick, you can get yours here

Meanwhile have a listen below as Ady chats with Ira about his life in music:
