ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A modern-day beatnik, a vaudeville barker, a film noir rocker, a blues growler, a barroom balladeer, a saloon philosopher, a subway cabaret monster, and an untraditional traditionalist? Singer-songwriter L J Murphy has been described as all of these.

He's also been described as one of the most unique and poetic songwriters to come out of New York City in a very long time.

Lia

Van Morrison meets Freedy Johnston
LJ has the rough, sexy baritone of a young Van Morrison, and the elegant lyrics of a Freedy Johnston. These songs deserve to be listened to again and again -- something different will strike you every time. Barroom blues and balladry at their peak.

Great songs from the dark streets.
Great songs, that swing and rock - and an interesting voice.

Save me a table
If you are looking for a pretty voice then this won’t interest you. If you like Leonard Cohen’s lyrics and feeling like you are in a smokey bar in the 50’s then this just might interest you. L.J Murphy has some grit in his delivery and blues in his bones and you feel what he shares with you. Then just when you think you have him labeled he is rocking or singing country. My favorite number is Saturday’s Down both musically and lyrically. When I hear Skeleton Key I immediately not only understand the word sultry but I become it. No matter what he is up to you feel the need to leave a tip on the table when the music ends.

Underbelly of America Exposed with Rhythm and Soul
L J Murphy's rhythmic swagger transports the listener down an alley and into a dark bar room. Exposing the underbelly of Americana with a bitter growl, yet tempered by his smooth baritone when the band lays low. Reminiscent of a latter, but more soulful, Leonard Cohen and an early, but more digestible, Tom Waits.
