Kristina Murray - Album Release Show
Andrea & Mud
515-B North McDonough St.
Decatur, GA, 30030
Doors 6:00 PM / Show 7:00 PM
Georgia-bred, Nashville-based songwriter Kristina Murray plays Americana and country music rooted and steeped in troubadour storytelling, southern-rock grit and the footsteps of country queens of yesteryear. Kristina’s songwriting springs from a deep and personal desire to share her truth, her opinions and convictions, and the simple joys and tragedies of life. Her songs adhere to the adage “write what you know,” and her delivery is as fluid, rhythmic, and steady as her right hand on her 1963 J-45, a beloved companion whom she endearingly calls Lil’ Sister in a nod to an early musical hero, one Elvis Aaron Presley.
Kristina currently lives in Nashville, where she is active in the underground independent country and Americana music scene that pays homage to the jangle of an acoustic guitar, the sting of a Telecaster, tight harmonies and the walking bassline—the sweat and grime and heartache of country legends—rather than, say, the synth and drum machine of contemporary pop country. One listen and you’ll believe every word that drips from her honky-tonk hewn, yet honeyed vocal style.
Released on her own label, Loud Magnolia Records, her forthcoming second album, Southern Ambrosia conveys a fierce and witty perspective on southernisms, hard truths, heartbreak, and the eternal magical mystery and saving grace of melody, music and song.
Southern Ambrosia will be available worldwide, September 21, 2018. PREORDER HERE: https://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/kristinamurray
Andrea & Mud
Andrea Colburn and Mud Moseley sound like a panther screaming in the middle of the night, like a band of gypsies at a tea party, like a carefully curated hullabaloo held in a Wild West funeral home. Like Doc Watson and the Cramps had a love child.
Just as much influenced by Willie Nelson, Tom Waits, and Hank Williams Sr. as new Country acts such as Colter Wall and the Deslondes, Colburn & Moseley keep somewhat of a traditional country and blues feel all while giving it their own haunting, part Piedmont, part psychobilly spin. Part Flat Duo Jets, part Bonnie and Clyde, this is not a performance that you will want to miss.
Andrea Colburn was born and raised in NW Ohio. After a difficult move to St. Louis, MO at 13, Andrea turned to music and poetry. Highly inspired by Bobbie Gentry and Led Zeppelin, Andrea wanted to learn to play guitar, so her mother bought her one as a gift at 14 years old. She half-heartedly learned and played throughout high school, but didn't stick with music. After life led her to Georgia in 2012, and she was befriended by a large group of bikers and musicians and she met all the right people, she started writing songs and performing almost immediately.
They say Mud Moseley was born somewhere near Winder, GA but this information could never be confirmed. He was found in the woods one day with nothing but a guitar and a pair of overalls. After intensive etiquette classes/reform, Mud was still considered a threat to himself and others and was released back into the wild. Rather than going back to his feral life, he decided to bless the world with his music and moved to the big city. The rest, as they say, is history.
