"MASTERFUL" (BAEBLE MUSIC) ALBUM 'THE GRACELESS AGE' OUT APRIL 2 ON EVANGELINE RECORDING CO.
John Murry – the second cousin of William Faulkner whose "alluring,
emotional, and infectious" (NPR World Café) album 'The Graceless Age'
has been a UK sensation – has been added to the 13th Annual
NON-COMMvention. He will perform May 15, joining in a stellar lineup
that includes Mavis Staples, The Lone Bellow, Sallie Ford & The
Sound Outside, Steve Martin & Edie Brickell, Josh Ritter, Foxygen,
and David Wax Museum.
Last year's breakouts following NONCOMM included The War On Drugs and
Father John Misty and 2011's breakouts included The Civil Wars, The Head
& The Heart, and Justin Townes Earle.
Meanwhile, MTV Hive tabbed his 'The Graceless Age' as among "the finest folk albums of the winter of ’13."
Baeble Music called him "masterful."
Just a few weeks ago, the Mississippi-born artist sold out shows in
Belfast, Glasgow, Winchester, and London, with a line of fans turned
away at the latter show January 29. After a firestorm of UK raves, John
Murry's 'The Graceless Age' has been confirmed for an April 2 release on
Evangeline Recording Co. It's the last album produced and recorded by
Tim Mooney of American Music Club and Sun Kil Moon before his death June
13, produced in collaboration with Murry.
