8 Great Albums - A lot of fun and a lot of great hit songs that you will know and love. A USB full of these is just the trick for those long drives. :D
The first six albums are a collection of live performance selections and include many hit cover songs with a few progressive originals. (SEE the *SONG LISTS BELOW*
Each album is a step in the development of Murry’s performance and audio recording techniques. Have fun because there’s a lot of great HiT Songs takeing you onw journeys through a lot of genres.
The Album, ‘Out of the Shadows’ marks the emergence of Murry’s art as a songwriter. Lots of blues fusions with jazz, folk, country and some fun Boogie Woogies with a few vocal gymnastics.
in Addition there are a few EP’s and singles released that are the original songs from the ‘Silhouettes of Song” series only now recorded at a higher level of quality.
All of the albums have been recorded live in the bus studio. In the tropical Tumbling Waters of the Northern Territory, Australia.
Silhouettes of Song
Hi there, this is a series of albums full of HIT cover songs that I had to learn for my gigs. Each album includes some Originals that mark my progress in exploring different techniques and genres.
Each Album also represents key steps in the technical progress I was making as I sat in my bus parked up at Tumbling Waters in N.T. SOS 3 has a song I wrote to describe my home at the time. Lots of travellers and NT locals love this song because really hits home on what living in the NT is all about and why folks go there to be….
Each song has been recorded as a live studio recording. For those who don’t know what that means , it means I hit the record button play piano and sing as I do at a gig, click stop on the recording and that’s pretty much it. So its a warts and all type of recording with little human fluffs and errors. Normal Studio recordings, might record the one song or parts of it and do all sorts of removing of those fluffs and errors.
I really wanted to produce a record of my technical and musical progress and with the authenticity of human mistakes to keep it as real as what you will experience in a live show. :D
I also wanted to produce a nice and very diverse collection so that travellers can just plug it in and play. Here’s a nice little comment I get quite often now “We bought your albums last year and its been in our car on play permanently since we got it”. Each time I hear that my heart skips a beat.
PLEASE ENJOY CHECKING OUT THESE SONGS
You can buy uploads or streams online at the major music stores which is great, but I get less than half the money so if you can please support me and purchase directly from this website or at my gigs, that would be absolutely AWESOME. :D

As I progressed in songwriting and technical production skills so too did the quality of what I was producing.
Now 99 songs in total and over 8 hours of playback listening I was able to package albums up as USB's and many a happy fan have commented later that the USB collection has become a permanent driving companion. YAY.. I was doing something right. :D ..
Crossing T's and dotting i's , paying royalties for covered songs and all the administrative aspects of cover's. It was coming time to concentrate on writing my own songs find a way I could come out of the shadows and into a bigger market as my own kind of artist. Indeed the next album to come is my first kind of original album as a developed albeit still a diamond in the rough kind of self taught Piano Man.
Out of the shadows 2018
Almost 2 years from releasing SOS 1 and exploring different sounds and ideas for songs I have reached the point of coming out of the shadows. True to my story telling nature many of the songs are soft laments of love, laughs, learning, life, sorrow and pride plus a few upbeat numbers to lift the spirit of the album up a little. But a nice listening album with a few heart felt observations of life and some really nice environments like sitting around a fire watching the flames dance or just sitting with a bottle of red and a little plate of cheeses. :D I'm quite proud of this little album, the songs have touched a lot of folks already and I'm sure they will touch you too.. :D
