John Murry

This Mississippi-born songwriter troubadour with a Springsteen-like voice guided the night through a series of songs and personal stories that enchanted the Northcote Social Club and widely captivated the audience.

Hearing about his life and where his songs came from was quite moving but it didn´t feel like he was making a great deal of it at the same time –“… apart from when I f## up with the heroin and all that…”-.

There is maybe something intriguing about standing in front of someone who has been in the dark side, while assimilating the fact that he was ‘actually’ dead in an ambulance for a few minutes.

Sitting on the stage sharing his music, made me think how lucky he was of being there playing, and for us to be there listening. But no show of self-pity, just a soiree with a few good songs.

Just keep making good music, John. I was an amazing show.


Thanks for reading.
