Maine native Ray Pasnen releases his first album in 30 years
A singer, songwriter and musician with deep Maine roots has released his first album of new material since 1992. Ray Pasnen’s “Change Your Mind” features 12 new pop, country and country-rock songs from the Medway native who currently resides in Minden, Germany.
Maine and Atlantic Canada music fans remember Pasnen as frontman for the wildly popular band Choice. Ray’s natural charisma and powerfully dynamic voice contributed greatly to their success. Choice spent much of the 1990s canvassing the state to play most every bar and club, DAV and VFW hall and Elks Club to packed houses. The personalities of each band member, including that of guitarist Jack Swanson, kept Choice fans in stitches as they danced the night away.
Pasnen says his new album was a labor of love that he completed with help from a number of close friends and even the German government.

Ray Pasnen is a unique and memorable entertainer who combines his skills as a piano, guitar and harmonica player with an acclaimed vocal style. All of this wrapped up in a comedic package that is not soon forgotten. His distinctive voice takes the warmth of Country, the soul of Rhythm & Blues and the driving energy of Rock and Roll and delivers it in a style all his own.
Ray has traveled the world with his live show, making friends and fans. From Korea to New York, and from Bermuda to Germany, his endearing stage presence has earned him a place in the hearts of many. His range often amazes folks. From old stand-byes to brand new hits, Ray is right at home with any sort of song.
You can buy his music on various albums. The 1992 release, “Human Race”, kicked off a Wal-Mart sponsored tour. Later, “Live in Bermuda”, was released as a 30 song-double CD and includes, not only, his originals but many hits from various artists. Most recently, Ray has produced a new album and it was called, “Music from the Mill”. It was recorded in Bielefeld, Germany at Mühlenstudio. [Mill Studio] He has received extensive airplay around the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia.
