'The Byron Sessions' Tour

Pete Murray, one of Australia's most loved singer-songwriters has revisited the brilliant album Blue Sky Blue on his latest project, "The Byron Sessions" with a pre release just in time for Christmas through iTunes from 14 December 2012.

Blue Sky Blue "The Byron Sessions" features songs from an album that Pete loves, infused with the flavour and friendships from his adopted hometown of Byron Bay. Musicians who we have all come to love lend their talents to Pete's songs, creating a mesmerising sound that is familiar yet refreshing.

Byron locals Ash Grunwald and Scott Owen (The Living End) lend slide guitar and bass respectively to make Hurricane Coming unmistakably coastal. Katie Noonan's vocals on Hold It All For Love are beautifully haunting and new kid on the block Fantine takes Pete into uncharted territory on lead track Blue Sky Blue with a rap written by indigenous roots queen Natalie Pa'apa'a (Blue King Brown). Another Byron local Bernard Fanning takes time out of his busy recording schedule to sing backing vocals on Led. Busby Marou contribute vocal harmonies and guitar on Let You Go and the track Free features Darren Middleton (Powderfinger) playing his recognisable guitar licks on H.O.L.L.A.N.D.

For the first time since his independent artist days, Pete Murray will be touring the country for some up-close-and-personal shows, partly solo and partly stripped back acoustic with some of his muso mates.

Check out Pete in stripped back mode at the venues below and stay tuned for the official release of Blue Sky Blue "The Byron Sessions" through Sony on 1st February 2013.
