The Windish Agency has signed John Murry

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.
