Benjamin Adair Murphy

A man, his struggles ... And it's the music that wins (Un homme, ses combats ... Et c'est la musique qui gagne)

Discovering the music of Benjamin Adair Murphy was a real pleasure ... If he currently lives in Mexico City, his music is a totally successful syncretism of various American music ... Blues, folk, rock, country, soul, jazz, he succeeded in appropriating all these styles to take us, without ostentation, on a road that is his own, which crosses the United States from East to West and lists its treasures, but which also notes its lacks and denounces its sufferings ... Music as a balm, once again ... Now it's up to you to share this ...

Découvrir la musique de Benjamin Adair Murphy fut un vrai bonheur ... Si il vit actuellement à Mexico, sa musique est elle un syncrétisme totalement réussi des diverses musiques américaines ... Blues, folk, rock, country, soul, jazz, il a réussi l'exploit de s'approprier tout ces styles pour nous emmener, sans ostentation, sur une route bien à lui, qui traverse les Etats-Unis d'Est en Ouest et y recense ses trésors, mais qui y constate aussi ses manques et y dénonce ses souffrances ... La musique comme baume, une nouvelle fois ... A vous de partager cela, maintenant
