Ride Out the Storm – Kaz Murphy (as told by Mr. Bones)

In his fourth release Murphy deftly combines his astute observations of the human condition with a laconic JJ Cale like sound that beckons the listener to pay attention to his sage commentary on such issues as poverty, addiction and estrangement. His unique voice paired with top flight mandolin and acoustic bass accents create a simple, yet intriguing country/folk/blues sound.

RIFL: Lyle Lovett, Wood Brothers, Jessie Collin Young

mandolin/guitar interplay (4:29)

others featuring his great voice with a virtuoso spanish guitar

7 All I Wanna Do Is Work - mid-tempo tune about wanting work (4:24)
8 Somebody Could Be Me - jangley number wanting one's old love
back (3:38)
