Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to John Murry. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked his unique style.
From the first few seconds, I was won over by this talented artist’s voice.
A different, original, and unique music. I immediately thought of Nick Cave while listening to the compositions of this artist.
Deep lyrics sung in a passionate way by John who throws all his life and his emotions into his music.
Troubled melodies accompanied by a voice that speaks to the soul with its low and deep timbre that slight hoarseness makes nostalgic and suffered.
Some passages of the lyrics reminded me of the irreverence of Johnny Cash.
John Murry is an artist with a crystal clear talent and I’m glad he found the music as a vehicle to express his joys and sorrows.
Beautiful production, simple and effective, absolutely true and sincere.
The female voice that comes in support in some passages of the melody is like a veil of hope that rests on the hearts of us all.
A fantastic discovery that I absolutely recommend to everyone.
Oscar Wilde (Came Here To Make Fun Of You) is John Murry’s Single Out Now!
John Murry was adopted at birth into the family of William Faulkner. Some have speculated that the Faulkner blood might also run in his veins, but that should be left for a Southern Gothic novel yet to be written (or perhaps re-written). Raised in Tupelo, Mississippi, in the shadow of Elvis, his undiagnosed autism led to troubles at an early age that led to prescribed medication, which led to un-prescribed medication, which led to being institutionalized for addiction and mental health issues at a too young age.
Eventually, discarded onto the streets of Memphis, he found music, which became the one constant positive force in his life. Memphis led to San Francisco and San Francisco led to heroin and heroin led to a near fatal overdose on the corner of 16th and Mission, so harrowingly memorialized in his song Little Colored Balloons.
