Kathy Murray and the Kilowatts / Bio

CONTACT: bill@kathymurrayandthekilowatts.com.

Kathy Murray needs no introduction to Austin’s musical faithful. Murray developed her vision of the blues in the formative days of the Austin music scene, jamming with luminaries like Stevie Ray Vaughan, W.C. Clark, and members of the Fabulous Thunderbirds. A blues singer and songwriter par excellence, she first burst on the Austin music scene with her early band Kathy and the Kilowatts, wowing audiences with a tremendous live show, and sharing the stage with everyone from Albert Collins to Koko Taylor.
Murray has won the Australian Blues Association’s ‘Chain Award” for Australian Song of the Year with the Kate Meehan Band’s recording of Murray’s original song, “Call Me Mrs. Blues”. Listen/look for soulful Austin singer Toni Price's recent cover of Murray's "Bird in the Hand," a spicy blues with a hypnotic riff.
The Kathy Murray Band features Murray on guitar and ukulele, along with her longtime musical compadre Bill Jones on guitar, ukulele and accordion. Murray and Jones synergistically combine their talents into a one-of-a-kind Texas roots music experience. Her new CD, "Relatiively Blue" is getting radio airplay across Texas and beyond and is starting to garner some tasty reviews.
