Neil Murray has 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 Blood & Longing and Tungu ( all in one joined together) with Sammy Butcher.
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 Where my people go, the contemplation of place in Burrumbeep Hil, Whispering Casuarina and Bring Thunder & Rain to the recent Cry My Darling, Byjantic Man and Fine Open Country (with Sammy Butcher).
Collectively, his work has done much to deepen Australia’s contemporary music heritage. In 1995, Neil Murray was awarded the APRA song of the year for My Island Home originally written for the Warumpi Band and re-recorded by Christine Anu. My Island Home featured in the closing ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Olympics and the opening ceremony of the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth games.
