A magical and intimate concert featuring John Murry. Two masterpiece albums, a heartbreaking and astounding life story, and a new documentary, The Graceless Age, documenting this singular artist's journey. The Graceless Age: The Ballad of John Murry - The story of American singer-songwriter John Murry who was on the cusp of greatness until he became addicted to heroin, creatively exhausted, and went to Ireland a broken man…. John Murry is an American singer-songwriter known for his emotionally charged and critically acclaimed music. Born in Tupelo, Mississippi in 1979, he gained recognition with his debut solo record, 'The Graceless Age' (originally on Bucketfull Of Brains) released in 2013. This album received high praise from critics and music publications, establishing Murry as an artist of major stature. His music delves into themes of drugs and near-death experiences, offering a raw and introspective experience for listeners. Murry has collaborated with notable musicians and continues to captivate audiences with his dreamy falsetto and evocative lyrics. With his Mississippi roots and connection to literary figure William Faulkner, Murry's unique blend of musicality and introspection has garnered him a dedicated fan base.

“The Graceless Age” received 5 stars from MOJO magazine, UNCUT called it a “masterpiece”, both magazines included it in their Top 10 albums of the year; American Songwriter put it in their Top 5 of the year and The Guardian included it in their best of the year. The accolades rolled in and John toured the world. He entranced and devastated audiences with his raw, unfiltered live performances, and it looked like his trajectory was set, that music had won and would have the final word. But the story doesn't end there…

John Murry’s third album, ‘The Stars Are God’s Bullet Holes’ was produced by John Parish (PJ Harvey, Eels, Aldous Harding, This Is the Kit) at Rockfield Studios

“A work of genius” The Guardian
“Delivers in gloriously dysfunctional bucketloads” MOJO
