"One of the finest songwriters this country has ever produced." - Rhythms.
Founding Warumpi Band member and now maverick, award winning songman, Neil Murray brings his national “Telling” tour to SA in May 2024. Widely covered, Neil Murray’s song writing is diverse and influential and in concert he always captivates and inspires. Expect choice cuts from his acclaimed album “The Telling” along with landmark selections from his extensive back catalogue.
The Warumpi Band which, over three great albums and 20 years of performing, thrust contemporary indigenous music into mainstream Australia. Yielding such classic songs My Island Home, Blackfella Whitefella, Fitzroy Crossing, Jailanguru Pakarnu, From The Bush and Waru.
He has since become one of Australia’s finest singer/songwriters, enjoying a solo career since 1989. He has released a remarkable string of albums - the latest being The Telling, which marks a recording career of four decades. His song writing is diverse- from the rollicking Good Light in Broome, the prayerful Native Born, and healing Myall Creek, the roots groove of Long Grass Band and Eddie Mabo, the journeyman monologues of Lights of Hay and Whispering Casuarina, the contemplation of place in Burrumbeep Hill, Bring Thunder & Rain and Fine Open Country (with Sammy Butcher) to the current single Broken Land.
