Biography

John Murry – 'The Graceless Age'

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.

Murry says, "I am, in truth, named for his grandfather, my great-great-grandfather. My granddaddy, Charles 'Bo' Murry, is ... Read more

John Murry – 'The Graceless Age'

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.

Murry says, "I am, in truth, named for his grandfather, my great-great-grandfather. My granddaddy, Charles 'Bo' Murry, is buried about ten feet from him in Oxford, MS, and was his pallbearer. My plot is paid for and is adjacent to it."

Murry first appeared on record in collaboration with cult Memphis folk singer Bob Frank. Their album of murder ballad duets – “World Without End” – was released in 2006 to broad critical acclaim; David Fricke (Rolling Stone) describing it as "all bullets, blades and guilt without end".

‘The Graceless Age’ was produced in San Francisco by Murry and Tim Mooney of American Music Club, who sadly passed away in 2012. Murry moved to California in 2003; things went awry after a few years and his songs deal with the harsh truths of love, life and loss. His battle with addiction is memorably highlighted in the epic “Little Coloured Balloons”, recalling an overdose where he was clinically dead for several minutes.

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.

Following a limited UK release in 2012 and an AUS release on Spunk Records in Oct 2012, ‘The Graceless Age’ will be released on Evangeline Recording Co in the US on March 5, 2013. US release will be followed by release on Rubyworks in Europe and beyond as a special deluxe edition 2CD set with 6 previously unreleased bonus tracks, lyric booklet and embossed double digipak sleeve. Street date Monday 5th May 2013.
