“There are echoes of early Rolling Stones blues songs Bob Dylan and The Band and even Lynyrd Skynyrd in Ninety Five Acres. Murray's voice has a gravelly sweetness that works for the styles of music on the album.”
Ninety Five Acres
Logan Murray is a singer songwriter living in Elm Tree, Ontario. He was born in Kingston, Ontario and lived for short periods of time on Wolfe Island ON, in Toronto ON and near Goodwood ON. During the mid 80's he was owner of the Terrapin Tavern, a music venue in Kingston known for presenting everything from classical to rock music. Many of Canada's great musicians played the Terrapin as well as a who's who of international blues musicians.
He has worked as a boiler maker, carpenter, donut maker, union organizer, cabinet maker, lumberjack, municipal Politician, recordist, soundman, musician and general all around shite-disturber. He prefers the latter. He writes in many styles: rock, country, blues and folk, but prefers to call his songs roots music. He says: " Every thing I do comes from influences of simple music rooted in the experience of working people
He has taken a break from shite-disturbing to record the new bush hippie blues CD Barricades with The Spoon Lickers, a band of Stellar musicians from the Peterborough area. They hope to perform soon in your hometown soon.
Press from Logan's first release Ninety Five Acres ..." the CD meanders from a rockabilly sound (Gadget) to Blues (Plain Talk, Occupy), southern rock (Play With Fire), Chicago Blues ($100 or The Strange Relative Value of Human Endeavour) and Honky Tonk with the cheeky (Cell Phone Blues)... the result is an album with a lot of variety, as the songs were written over a long time and Murray is not bound by genres. the music is all high tempo, it rocks quite a bit and the lyrics often feature a turn of phrase the surprises." -Frontenac News
