Neil Murray is now a respected singer/songwriter- Good Light in Broome, Whispering Casuarina, Lights Of Hay are just some of his well loved songs. He has a string of remarkable albums under his belt, the most recent being Blood & Longing and Tjungu (all in one, joined together) with Sammy Butcher.
Accolades include the 2017 Port Fairy Folk Festival Artist of the year, the 1995 APRA song of the year award for My Island Home. The latter plus Jailanguru Pakarnu (Out from Jail- a 1983 co-write with Sammy Butcher in the Luritja language) have been selected into the National Film and Television Sound Archive's Sounds of Australia Series.
His song writing is diverse and influential. Artists such as Mary Black, Jimmy Little, Missy Higgins, Powderfinger and Liz Stringer have recorded his songs. Always engaging live, his work has contributed substantially to Australia's contemporary music heritage.
In 2023 Neil Murray is set to release a new album of original material The Telling- which will be his tenth studio album since he began a solo career in 1989.
With special launch shows planned for April expect an enthralling performance by Neil Murray and his band as they showcase the new album and also deliver landmark songs from his four decade recording career.
Joining Neil will be the wonderful Melanie Horsnell.
