I Just Discovered Richard Murray's New CD- "Desert Wind"

>> Sunday, January 3, 2010

I just discovered Richard Murray, an Irish born singer/songwriter. If you've never heard his music before, you can check out his "Desert Wind" album and listen to MP3 samplings here. I am no expert but I heard hints of Bob Dylan folk and Bruce Springsteen rock.

I looked to see what people in the music industry were saying and found this description by Freddy Celis in Rootstime, "His album has quite a diverse sound, from acoustic ballads to bluegrass to upbeat country rock whereby he displays his outstanding abilities with song and soulful sound...This record is infused with a fair chunk of Nashville but also pure Americana. Murray himself plays guitar, mandolin, harmonica and percussion on this CD."

Benny Metten from Crtl. Alt. Country gave Richard Murray glowing reviews, "The man appears not only to have been blessed with a formidable set of vocal chords, but also with an incredible instinct for melody and captivating lyrics."

Go check out MP3s from his "Desert Wind" album and see what you think for yourself!
