Hailing from Tupelo, Mississippi; John Murry’s solo debut album ‘The Graceless Age’ is imbued with the ghosts of the Southern states and the personal demons that have haunted him throughout his life. He has described himself as more absorbed in the world of literature than in the day-to-day concerns of the modern world, and for good reason: he's second cousin to William Faulkner and has spent much time with his second cousin's work.
‘The Graceless Age’ was produced in San Francisco by Murry and Tim Mooney of American Music Club, who sadly passed away in 2012. Murry moved to California in 2003; things went awry after a few years and his songs deal with the harsh truths of love, life and loss. His battle with addiction is memorably highlighted in the epic “Little Coloured Balloons”, recalling an overdose where he was clinically dead for several minutes.
'The Graceless Age' has been nominated for The Uncut Music Award Album Of The Year.
