The Guardian (Charlottetown)
Songwriter releases debut album
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.
