About

Revolution Harmony is an ongoing series of All-Star charity singles from British-African composer Ray Holroyd, based in Canada. All proceeds go to charities that restore harmony between people, animals, and the environment.

The Revolution Harmony logo was created from the C-clef in music notation, which is the only clef that can be used on all five stave lines (from the highest to the lowest), making it a true musical symbol of Equality. Download the RH logo as a black or white 300dpi PNG file.

Ray

Hello, my name is Ray Holroyd, and I'm a British-African, vegan, straightedger, composer, producer, music lecturer, journalist, runner, and minimalist!

Born in the '70s in Cape Town (South Africa), I began playing piano at the age of seven, and guitar at the age of eleven. I went on to form Royd, an original grunge/rock band that received national acclaim. In 1996, along with playing sold-out shows, our debut single reached No.1 on the rock chart of the country's most popular national radio station, 5FM, and we returned to the No.1 spot in 1998 with our third single.

After graduating from high-school and achieving the highest grade from the Royal Schools of Music in piano, classical guitar, and theory of music, I moved to Los Angeles (USA) in 1999 to study contemporary guitar and voice at Musicians Institute. There I also recorded an album with my new original multicultural hip-hop/rock band Gray Race Evolution, and gained valuable experience performing on the Los Angeles music circuit, which included shows on the famous Sunset Strip.

In 2001 I immigrated to England (London), where I became the composer/guitarist in 12 Ton Method, my new original dodecaphonic metal band. I lectured music theory and composition at the UK's largest college from 2001-2011, where I was also the course director and accredited lead internal verifier. After writing for Kerrang! magazine from 2009-2010 I moved on to Terrorizer, where I became the editor of their new guitar magazine Sick Sounds from 2010-2011, and I'm still a journalist for Terrorizer as well as Total Tattoo magazine.

I founded and ran the non-profit record label Grade 9 Records from 2008-2012, which exclusively released my students' music worldwide and donated all the proceeds to charity. In 2011 I relocated to Vancouver (Canada) and expanded this philanthropic dream by launching my new and improved non-profit record label Revolution Harmony, which released over 40 records worldwide, including Cryptopsy's self-titled 2012 album.

In May 2013 Revolution Harmony was streamlined to focus exclusively on my All-Star charity singles that feature multiplatinum Grammy-winning artists (Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine, Serj Tankian of System Of A Down, and many more), with all the proceeds going to charities that restore harmony between people, animals, and the environment.

Thank you sincerely for your time and support, as together we are all the Revolution Harmony. Amandla Awethu!
