Raymond Toro was born on July 15, 1977 in Kearny, New Jersey. He was one of the founding members and lead guitarist of My Chemical Romance. After their break-up, on 24 May 2013 Ray posted a solo song, "Isn't That Something", to his SoundCloud account. He also stated how the track was entirely a solo effort: "I played everything. Sang everything. Recorded everything. Mixed everything. Myself" via his Twitter.
On January 1st 2015 he posted a new song "For The Lost And Brave" on his website and SoundCloud, as a free download. Mentioning Leelah Alcorn, a transgender teenager who had recently committed suicide, in the blog post, he said:
"After hearing her story, and reading her final Tumblr post, I finally felt it was time to share this song.
It is time we learn to accept each other for who we truly are. Being seen, heard, and truly loved as our authentic selves is something we all want, and something we all deserve."
