In 2016, Gray started to plant his jazz roots in Vancouver and brought together members of the Capilano Jazz Alumni to establish the Neil Gray Quartet. The electric quartet lineup crafts improvised arrangements based on each event experience and setting. With a focus on deep swinging standards, simmering ballads, and well-honed originals, performances are creative and engaging to watch.
After hearing a record of the legendary GRP Jazz All Stars at the age of 16, Gray developed a thirst for jazz music. As he developed himself as a jazz musician, Gray worked as a session musician, touring Western Canada and working with artists in the Rock, Jazz, Funk and Blues genres. Gray gained notoriety in multiple scenes while developing an ear for crafting compositions to create a propulsive, exciting jazz sound.
