The first memory Graham Murray has as a child was living on a farm in Co Wexford, Ireland. Even during those early years Graham loved singing and taking part in the local talent competitions called “Opportunity Knocks” Both of his parents loved listening to both Irish & American Country music and his sister played the accordion and so it is no surprise that Graham grew up with an interest in Country Music.
Now Graham is receiving quite a few acclamations for his works of music:
“When someone thinks of Ireland, the last thing that probably comes to mind to anyone, when we talk about music, is a Country band or artist. Rock, electronica maybe hip hop or rap … But Country? However, Graham Murray shows that this is possible on his self-titled EP…… In conclusion, everything on this album works perfectly” RJ Frometa, Vents Magazine
“Graham Murray has that unique voice that legends are made of. I call him the Irish cowboy in a admiring way. I love his sound, his voice and his songs. He is one to watch for” Stephen Wrench President, Musik and Film Record Label
““Curracloe man Graham Murray is flying high at the moment following the release of his debut EP on American record label Musik and Film.”Padraig Byrne, Wexford People Newspaper
“Mainstream American country music is the territory mined out by Wexford outfit Graham Murray & The Rusty Stringz. “High & Low” nonetheless sounds impressively authentic. It helps that Murray has a great, big, booming, voice that sounds like it was honed in the honky-tonks, bars and county fairs of the American south-west, rather than in the lounge bars of the sunny south-east of Ireland”.— Colm O’Hare, Hot Press
Graham is now receiving global airplay by hundred of radio stations including the BBC network.
