Song­writer re­leases de­but al­bum

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINM­ENT -

Folk/coun­try mu­si­cian Pa­trick Mur­ray, based out of Monc­ton, N.B., lands in Char­lot­te­town on his Mar­itime tour on Oct. 1 with a new al­bum pro­duced by JP Cormier ti­tled “New Be­gin­ning’s”.

His de­but LP is a 14-song sound­track of Mar­itime life and life as a mil­i­tary vet­eran. The ma­jor­ity of his songs were writ­ten dur­ing his tran­si­tion from the mil­i­tary in 2016 and deal­ing with anx­i­ety.

From “Life is Com­pli­cated”, “Heart­break” and “Ever­long” Mur­ray em­barks on a jour­ney of the heart.

The long time navy/air force vet­eran is ex­cited to launch this new chap­ter of his life, ex­chang­ing his ri­fle and uni­form for gui­tar and songs. Mur­ray also con­ducts song­writ­ing/cre­ative writ­ing sem­i­nars for vet­er­ans, RCMP and first re­spon­ders deal­ing with PTSD and anx­i­ety with work­shops planned in Saint John, Hal­i­fax and St. John’s.

Mur­ray plays Baba’s Lounge at 8 p.m., along­side P.E.I. trou­ba­dour and Mu­sic P.E.I. nom­i­nee Brian Dunn. The night will be capped off with the band Crown Lands from On­tario who is re­leas­ing its sopho­more EP “Rise Over Run”. The high­en­ergy blues-rock duo hails from Toronto.
