XEB brings together ex original members of Third Eye Blind. Kevin Cadogan, Tony Fredianelli and Arion Salazar's contributions span 17 years of the band’s history.

Cadogan, who was a signatory to Third Eye Blind's Elektra record deal, performed lead guitar and composed the music to 10 of the 14 songs on 3eb’s 1997 Self Titled debut album which sold 6x platinum. Cadogan also composed the music to 6 songs on 3eb’s 2x platinum selling sophomore album 'Blue' including the fan favorite "Wounded". Cadogan has been hailed as a Master Innovator by Guitar Player Magazine and toured from ’96-’99 performing his co-authored radio hits "How's It Going To Be", "Graduate", and "Losing A Whole Year".

In San Francisco 1993/94, they wrote and performed under the name Third Eye Blind until Fredianelli exited the band that same year, but not before contributing musical production elements to songs on the debut such as "Motorcycle Drive By" and the hit "Semi Charmed Life". Fredianelli later contributed his signature backing vocals and guitar, ushering in a new sound for Third Eye Blind that carried through the fourth album. Fredianelli composed the music to many songs on the certified gold album 'Out Of The Vain'. His co-authored radio hits include “Blinded”, “Non-Dairy Creamer” and 2009’s “Bonfire” from the #1 selling album 'Ursa Major'.

Grammy nominated Bassist and composer Arion Salazar co-wrote many songs (credited and un-credited) throughout the band’s career including the hit “Never Let You Go” along with other fan favorites spanning the bands career. Salazar is credited as a producer on Third Eye Blind's 'Blue' and 'Out Of The Vein' albums and is known for his signature use of double/effected bass tracking and vintage keyboards.
Brad Ray
Brad Ray
Rome, Georgia native Brad Ray began playing guitar at the age of twelve. He honed his playing skills listening to a diverse palette of artists; Third Eye Blind, Prince, Whitesnake and Maxwell, just to name a few. From these influences, he began to develop his own unique style of playing and composing songs. Fast forward a couple years and Brad is studying at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. It is there that he really began to grow as a writer composing literally hundreds of songs and performing when he could fit it in between studies. He realized there that his heart was that of an artist and he left school to pursue a career as a songwriter and performer.

In 2015 Brad launched his professional touring career and performed with Howie Day (“We Collide”), Paul Pfau and Steve Everett of (The Voice). In early 2016, Brad joined forces with Rock Radio favorite: Sister Hazel for his first U.S. Tour and then joined Alt/Rock legends; Hinder for yet another tour of the country. This Fall he once again toured the U.S. with Jon McLaughlin and Marc Scibilia. It has been a very busy year with 3 tours and a new album completed!

The new album on Stingray Records is the eponymous release; Brad Ray. This is Brad’s first “Official” release. The record was recorded at legendary Sound Emporium Studios in Nashville, TN. Studio aces; Greg Morrow (Joe Bonamassa), Steve Mackey (Wallflowers), Dennis Wage (Delbert McClinton, T. Graham Brown), Dan Dugmore (Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor), The McCrarys (Bob Dylan, Carrie Underwood) and others were enlisted for the project. Grammy nominated engineer, Steve Marcantonio mixed the project.The record was produced by Ben McRee. The album will be available late December 2016 on all the usual sites as well as here on Brad’s website.
