John Murry

The Musician, 42 Crafton St W
Leicester, LE1 2DE United Kingdom
+ Google Map

“On The Graceless Age you can hear John’s affinity to artists such as Mark Linkous and Mark Lanegan, but seeing him on stage, with just his guitar and his songs reminded me of Townes (Van Zandt), that raw-boned, exquisite beauty, so real that it borders on the uncomfortable, you feel you should look away, but it’s just too compelling to do so. The pain, the intensity, the honesty just draws you deeper” - Michael Timmins (Cowboy Junkies)
