Smooth Jazz, Chill Composer, musician and producer Mike Murray's, piano skills were first sewn as a young man during summers on an old upright piano at a summer camp but he lacked focus. Years later he landed a spot with a local high school funk band as a drummer but before musical seeds could take root, the time came to turn the page to the next chapters in life.
Over the years, Mike was heavily influenced by, music greats such as George Duke, Stanley Clarke, FourPlay, Santana, Hiroshima, Paul Hardcastle, Alex Bugnon, EWF, Mandrill and other groundbreaking talents.
Mike followed his father's footsteps as a pianist and returned to music making in 2005. Shortly thereafter, a friend heard something special enough in a recording to offer strong encouragement with one resounding and repetitive message: “dig deeper”. So he did until the release of his first CD “Skyline” in 2007. He's been digging ever since.
Mike’s twenty-first and most recent commercial release “Vantage Point” continues to distinguish Mike Murray's unique sound and sets him apart from other artists.
