“Singer/songwriter Mike Murray has honed a lasting — and luminous — musical career.” – Carol Marino – Daily Interlake – July 4, 2018
With lyrics that channel his day-to-day experiences living in Montana and being human, Murray’s popularity has soared with local audiences. His music flirts with a smattering of unique styles, from his folksy 2011 debut album “International” to the alternative rock of his most recent release, 2018’s “Difficult Days” which landed a spot on the 2019 Grammy nomination consideration list for “Best Rock Album.” – Austin Amestoy – Montana Kaimin – Feb 12, 2020
“Mike is the most promising singer/songwriter that i’ve been fortunate enough to see perform in Montana in recent years. He’s got the talent, the looks, the voice and the personality that it takes to make it to the top of this business….no easy feat these days. I am looking forward to collaborating with him.” –Christian Johnson – Performing/Recording Artist, Mission Mountain Wood Band
“Murray’s terrific mid-baritone range allows him to swoop and dive from low notes to falsetto. His burnished voice is heightened by a quivery, grainy honesty. He swaddles [it] all in great guitar solos and sailing choruses.” –Mariss McTucker – Lively Times (04/2018)
“It’s obvious Murray thrives with an electric guitar in his hands. His stage presence draws in the audience as he loses himself in deep solos on top of a driving beat.” –Matt Baldwin – Editor, Whitefish Pilot (11/2013)
“…phenomenal set” – Tristan Scott – Flathead Beacon – July 17, 2019
Mike Murray [has] carved out [a] successful niche in the Montana music scene, with [his] reach at times extending to regional and national levels. [He] has a number of well-received albums and countless sold-out shows to [his] name, including big festivals. [He’s] known, [He’s] good and [He’s] done this for a while. – Myers Reece – Flathead Beacon – July 11, 2019
“‘When I first listened to “Tumbleweed” I knew I was listening to something special that went beyond just another album on the shelf. When I initially reviewed the album in June, I noted how Murray embodied the “Montana Sound.” -Eric Waier – “This Week in the Flathead” (Daily Interlake).
