Riverside, CA, September 14, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Raymond Gregory, a pop/jazz musical artist from Southern California, released a 5-song record to over 40 different digital music outlets (including Itunes, Napster, and Rhapsody) after overcoming the stumbling block of progressive hearing loss. Raymond suffered hearing damage as a young child derivative of a high temperature fever caused by spiral meningitis. The inductive hearing loss was progressive, and at one point Raymond was considered legally deaf after performing very poorly on several hearing tests. His condition required him to have the assistance of hearing aids, and the use of sign language by way of communication. By age 14 though, Raymond began to experience his hearing improving, and new tests revealed that his hearing was now starting to return. After taking his last hearing test in May of 2007, Raymond performed at a normal hearing level. Doctors have not yet attributed the sudden improvement in Raymond’s hearing to anything to date. He now manages a heavy music schedule of live shows and events to promote his CD, and to follow his dream of doing music. “Raymond Gregory was raised in family that was no stranger to music. His mother received her Bachelor Degree in music performance from APU, and for several years his father was a music director at their church. Aside from his parents; his entire family on his mother's side is well established in musical roots, and his Grandfather shared the stage with names like Kenny Rogers and Chet Atkins” (http://raymondgregory.com). Now Raymond has the chance to add to that legacy. Raymond Gregory’s CD “Why I’m Here” is available for purchase on CdBaby.com/RaymondGregory, and most major digital music outlets.
