Stephen Bray

Songwriter, Composer, Producer
Stephen Bray has pretty much done it all, musically speaking. The Grammy and Tony-nominated songwriter, producer, musician and composer first gained notoriety back in the '80s when his groundbreaking work with Madonna helped launch her career and establish a sound that would be emulated by artists and producers for years to come. Working together, the duo wrote and produced some of Madonna’s biggest hits, including “Into the Groove,” “Papa Don't Preach,” “True Blue” and “Express Yourself,” just to name a few. Over the years, he's worked with other major artists like Kylie Minogue, Gladys Knight, The Jets, Siedah Garrett, Debra Harry, E. G. Daily and Breakfast Club, with whom he was Grammy nominated for Best New Artist. As a songwriter and producer, Stephen has received Gold, Platinum and Diamond awards representing sales of over 100 million records. More recently, Stephen has found success in musical theatre as a composer-lyricist for the Broadway adaptation of The Color Purple, which was Tony nominated for Best Score in 2005. Re-imagined by director John Doyle, The Color Purple won the 2016 Tony for Best Revival.  Stephen won the 2017 Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album for his production work on the Cast Recording. Recent projects include TranscenDance, a collection of spiritual teachings set to dance music and Masterphonic, a composing and production boutique providing custom music for storytellers.
