I'm excited to announce The Windish Agency has signed John Murry!
Bay Area (by way of Tupelo, Mississippi) songwriter and noisemaker John
Murry released his debut record entitled "The Graceless Age" on
Evangeline Records in May 2013 to wisespread critical acclaim. The
record contains startlingly beautiful contemplations on his troubled,
drug-riddled past and familial redemption, melding sonic influences as
disparate as Neil Young and Spacemen 3.
The Guardian's four star review claims "The Graceless Age is
extraordinary, a profound and moving meditation – the kind of album that
answers questions you didn't realise you were asking. Musically, it's
hardly unfamiliar – weeping Americana, backed with fuzzes of electric
guitar and organ that slide in and out of focus, discomfiting and
discombobulating – but expertly done. Lyrically, though, it's
remarkable: brutal, frank and beautiful." NPR called his music
"alluring, emotional, and infectious."
Live, Murry sets an emotive mood through his baritone vocals, fuzzed out
Telecasters, and exposed lyrical subjects. This is an artist who puts
his entire being into a live set, physically and emotionally spent at
its conclusion; so too are the hushed crowds.
