Warwick Murray and the Kingmakers

 

Warwick Murray is one of the most entertaining, versatile, and well-travelled multi-instrumentalists and singer-songwriters in New Zealand. He has recorded and played in a range of genres in over 30 countries. He is skilful playing on many instruments includes guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, ukulele, drums, and harmonica.

 

In a parallel musical life is also a performer and writer of heartfelt blues, rock and jazz. He has headlined in Europe, Latin America, New Zealand and the Pacific at festivals including La Serena international jazz festival and Viña del Mar jazz (Chile), Barrels Blues Festival (UK), and Queenstown Winterfest and Jazz festivals.

 

His latest blues-rock release was ‘Smile’ with The Murray Brothers – on which he and his brother played all of the instruments with original songs recorded during the lockdown in New Zealand in 2020. The album reached number 12 in the NZ Top 20 albums chart in February 2021.

 

Warwick has also enjoyed New Zealand album chart success with the Strait Shooters (That’s All We Have Time For, #20 2017), the Fabulous Murray Brothers (Sing It Chap! #6 2018) and Funky Jandal and the Murray Brothers (See you at the end boys! #12 2019). His party piece is Voodoo Chile by Jimi Hendrix on the ukulele! https://youtu.be/-zHWM_mLK-8
