“Remindful of a late Townes Van Zandt, Murray’s gothic take on the genre is simple, yet brain-rattling; relatable, yet completely detached from reality. His music is a giant contradiction that exudes authenticity…a man no blues fan can afford to miss.” – Happy Magazine, 2015
“…the slide guitarist bares his soul, exuding a rustic, country aura…Australia’s own Derek Trucks gets his guitar quivering with emotion.” – Rhythms Magazine, 2016
Nick Murray is a folk-blues musician from Sydney. He’s been a headline act as part of the RAW Sydney event “Grandeur” at Manning Bar in 2015 and performed in the 'Feeling the Street' competition, which brought together street musicians from all over the world. He has performed at many well-known Sydney venues including The Soda Factory, The Gasoline Pony, a residency at Corridor Bar, LazyBones, The Brass Monkey and Mr Falcon’s. He has been a mainstay in the Sydney busking scene, regularly performing at Hyde Park and surrounding areas. His striking appearance and rapport with the audience make for a memorable musical experience.
He has been interviewed and played live on ‘Blues Radio’ on Northside Radio Station, Alive 90.5 and Tribes of Sydney on 2RRR. Following on from his 2015 demo release, Nick Murray teamed up with local Sydney producer, Michael Wheatley (Nut ‘n’ Butter Studios) to release his debut EP, “Blue Fruits”. “Blue Fruits”, mastered by Grammy award winner William Bowden (King Willy Records), has received favourable reviews in national music publications and enjoyed widespread airplay. On the back of releasing “Blue Fruits”, Murray will be embarking on a regional NSW tour in November 2016.
