Like Ayers Rock, Pete Murray is massive in Australia.
With regular sold out tours across the country, number one records, multi-platinum albums and many, many awards Pete definitely rocks. Having previously headlined Brixton Academy and Shepherds Bush Empire, he returns to the UK this month for an intimate headline tour (his first in almost 5 years) – with an almost sold-out show at London’s Bush Hall kicking things off on the 14th November (full list of dates below).
Pete’s is an unlikely success story… a rising Rugby football star gets so badly injured that he has to leave his sport behind. He picks up an acoustic guitar, teaches himself how to play it and records an indie CD that he sells after shows from the back of his Kombi Van.
His debut album, the roots/rock infused ‘Feeler’ (2003), went number one and triple platinum in Australia, as well as earning 12 ARIA Award nominations. ‘Feeler’ eventually spent over two and a half years in the Top 100. The acclaimed album spawned his classic ‘So Beautiful’ which went on to become the Most Performed Australian Song of the Year.
Two more number one albums followed, with further critical and commercial success hot on their heels. Now, with a new album in the works, Pete is returning to Europe.
