Every Day Above Ground Is a Good One
'Chesna has the confidence and talent to take control of the stage even before he speaks into the mic and he soon has the audience wrapped up in his stories and song' - Robert Haigh, Open Mic Host Tupelo Music Hall 'I keep tellin' my guitar player 'play more like that', like you do.' - Jimmy Rogers, former Muddy Waters bandmate 'This guy has just shown everyone in the room how it's done.' - Bruce Bressack, HippoPress 'A little rockabilly, a little blues, a little New Orleans jazz, a little Randy Newman-esque pop, a touch big-band ballad - put a different amount of each in 11 separate glasses and you'd have a concoction akin to Ray Chesna's CD The Perfect Blend. Chesna is a New Englander turned Georgia singer-songwriter who recently moved back north to seek his fortune. He set up shop on local stages, particularly at Tupelo Music Hall, and seems to be building a healthy local fan base. Chesna is a jack of all styles, and it shows on The Perfect Blend.' - Robert Greene, HippoPress Editor.
