ABOUT THE KIPPER GRAY SESSIONS
For Jason Gray, the summer has been a little like “Bring Your Son To Work Day.”
But perhaps a more accurate description of the work arrangement would be the inverse—“Bring Your Father To Work Day” for his son Kipper.
Jason Gray’s career as a CCM recording artist goes back over a decade and requires no introduction. What people may be unaware of, however, is that Jason’s not the only Gray with musical talent up his sleeve. Twenty-one year old Kipper has rhythm all of his own and is establishing himself as a budding producer. It was only a matter of time before the duo put their skills together outside of the household. And that’s just what they’ve have done, with Jason’s new EP The Kipper Gray Sessions releasing Friday, September 14.
“I’ve played around with music with my son for years and had always hoped one day we could make a commercial project with each other,” Jason says. “My record label ended up hearing some demos Kipper had done for me, and we felt like there was a little bit of magic in it that we wanted people to hear.” With a laugh he adds, “Plus, I figured my son does kind of owe me, since I paid for his room and board for eighteen years…”
Under Kipper’s leadership as producer, Jason worked on new material. There was something particularly fresh about this production process that felt reinvigorating for the singer-songwriter. With numerous years, albums, singles, and performances under his belt, he had found himself with “blinders” on during the creative process – the way all of us can get stuck doing work the way we’ve always done it, adhering to the norm “just because.” Jason found a breath of fresh air in Kipper’s new perspectives.
