“Through TV and Streaming Shows, Mike Murray’s Music Is Finding New Listeners. A licensing agreement with a record label has resulted in Murray’s songs showing up on a range of shows, including Big Sky, American Idol, Lucifer, The Today Show and Love Island” – Mike Kordenbrock – Flathead Beacon –
“‘Murray’s been one of the busiest sought-after musicians in and around the Flathead (since 2011). Murray’s message is one of hope for the pursuit of equality and justice in our country and in the world” – Carol Marino – Daily Interlake – February 8, 2021
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
“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)
“In contrast to his previous music, Murray describes the new 12-song album (We Are Like Warriors) as a “heavily introspective piece of work” in the rock genre. Murray played all the instruments on the album, experimenting with a lot of guitars, and mastered it himself in his studio at home in Kalispell.”- Maggie Dresser – Flathead Beacon – February 2, 2021
