Tonight at The Musician, Leicester (3/9): John Murry + Liam Dullaghan

Magic Teapot Presents

John Murry
Tuesday 3rd September
plus Liam Dullaghan
Hailing from Tupelo, Mississippi; John Murry’s solo debut album ‘The Graceless Age’ is imbued with the ghosts of the Southern states and the personal demons that have haunted him throughout his life. He has described himself as more absorbed in the world of literature than in the day-to-day concerns of the modern world, and for good reason: he's second cousin to William Faulkner and has spent much time with his second cousin's work.
Throughout these songs in the key of heartbreak, there is nonetheless a strong and abiding sense of salvation and reconciliation. ‘The Graceless Age’ is an album that unflinchingly exposes John Murry’s dark pains and loss through songs that are translucent vessels of beauty and light.

"Raw, powerful lyrics and Springsteen-like cinematic sweep." - Michael Mayer, San Jose Mercury News
