THE QUEEN OF ROCKIN' BLUES!!!!!!
One of my favorite bands were always LITTLE FEAT! I have a lot of those grooves and rhythms in my music from that band. And I really loved the SECOND incarnation of the band, that featuered this MONSTEROUS singer named SHAUN MURPHY!!! She was this powerhouse vocalist that rocked everything she touched.
I really got into her and then found out she also sang with BOB SEEGER, and TONS of monster artists. But she was the killer on everything she was close to.
WHAT A SOULFUL VOICE!!!
A few years back, I was lucky to sing with a LITTLE FEAT TRIBUTE BAND named BIG SHOES, for a bit and through them, I actually got to MEET HER!!! I must admit I was a bit star struck. She was as good live as she was on record. Very rare.
A couple years after that I met her again at a MUSIC STARTS HERE, get together and she mentioned she might be interested in writing with me.
WOAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!
(TOLD YOU GUYS TO GO TO THOSE EVENTS!!!!)
A couple weeks after that....BOOM!!!! She's at my house and we were actually writing. The God's smiled on us that day and we came up with "OUT OF MY OWN WAY" a tribute to all of us , particularly players who sometimes are our own worst enemies. She had a monster line:
"I've been beat up, I've been kicked down,
But I don't stay down for long
Ain't a problem I can;t overcome
And come back twice as strong!"
Man, that summed it up! I was so excited to be working with this legend, I wanted to play it everywhere. But sometimes you have to wait, and make sure it's right.
WELL TODAY IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT!!!
I got my copy of her CD, MIGHTY GATES, with our song on it at the NUMBER TWO track!
I'm very excited about it and would love all my buds to go check her out! If you like my "R&B flavored stuff, you;re gonna love this! She knocks it out of the park!!!
Thank you Shaun!!!!!! Loved it!

Humm,
Congrats. I don't know who Shaun Murphy is but your song sounds a bit like my song Around the Horn, not anyways the same but on the same theme. And here I thought the music business was dead! Hope she knocks it out of the park.

Thanks folks for taking the time to respond and for listening. It is a pretty cool thing to get a writing appointment with an accomplished person that you really respect. Having them love the idea and writing the song, then running with it and getting it through the other songs, spending money to record it, putting it on a project, and actually getting it out there is a pretty cool thing all the way around.

AND, hearing the song after over a year and remembering that you really liked it, and it all turning out great, that is about all you can ask for. I even played it yesterday on a show I did here in town. Quite enjoyable.

And it is also a cool thing to be able to tell your peers and friends (or actually have them tell you they heard it) with someone who is well known, is a lot of bragging rights. This town, and actually a lot of people are huge Little Feat, Bob Seeger fans and she is well known among them. So it's all nice feathers in the cap. Even if it doesn't generate huge sales, who cares? All a victory.

I'll take those all day long.

MAB

Awesome! Congrats MAB. The only thing better than getting a cut is getting a cut by an artist you truly admire!

Well done, MAB. Little Feat are rockn roll legends, and getting that kind of cut is pure songwriting class!

Congratulations! She is really good. I hope it sells like crazy.....

I knew one of Little Feat's female singers - Valerie Carter - who lived near me until she recently died. She was a powerhouse singer too.

Hey,

Kind of enjoying seeing the kind of accolades my buddy Shaun Murphy is getting on her record. This is the first review I've seen from "BLUESBLAST" magazine. I sort of like the paragraph that mentions our song, "OUT OF MY OWN WAY";


Shaun Murphy – Mighty Gates | Album Review
Shaun Murphy – Mighty Gates

Vision Wall Records

www.shaunmurphyband.com

13 Tracks/50:06

Most people have some experience with the adage, “Life ain’t fair”. Often invoked as a way of accounting for situations that seemingly defy reality, those three words remind us that sometimes there is no explaining some of the twist and turns along life’s highway. That sentiment certainly applies to Shaun Murphy’s solo career. While other singers with only a shred of her talent wail, warble, and scream their way into the spotlight, Murphy has received little acclaim for a series of recordings featuring her amazing voice. Despite doing backing vocals for Bob Seger over the decades as well as several Eric Clapton tours, and fifteen years as the lead singer for Little Feat, she continually seems to be overlooked and under-appreciated for her solo efforts.

Her latest kicks off with solid shuffle, “I Don’t Need Nobody,” courtesy of Tom DelRossi on drums and John Marcus on bass. The song was written by guitarist Kenne Cramer, who’s tasty licks ride the swells played on the organ played by Kevin McKendree, who also produced the project. Cramer also penned “Blues In The Morning,” a track sure to be a hit with the dancers as McKendree gives his piano keyboard a thorough workout.

Murphy had a hand in composing seven tunes, starting with “Out Of My Own Way,” is a rueful lament that could be Murphy’s theme song, as she knowing relates the value of pushing on through all that life throws at you. The band kicks it into another gear on “Slightly Free,” and Murphy’s voice easily matches the tougher sounds, unleashing several primal cries in response to Tommy Stillwell’s galvanizing guitar work. His efforts are a focal point as the singer maintains a sense of emotional restrain, mourning a broken heart on “I Never Loved You”. On “A Night Like This,” Murphy captivates listeners as she caresses each note, building layers of emotional texture in a performance that amply illustrates the extent of her talent. Another standout is the ballad, “I Never Stopped Loving You,” her voice beautifully rising over McKendree’s delicate piano accompaniment. “That Kind Of Time” finds Murphy making it clear that she no intentions of waiting around, hoping for a lasting relationship. Once again, Stillwell’s playing is first-rate.

It is great to hear someone crank it up on several Frankie Miller tunes. Miller was a brawny Scottish singer and songwriter who had a major impact on Seger, eventually falling victim to a brain hemorrhage that left him unable to perform. “Down The Honky Tonk” features ringing guitar chords and a driving beat with Murphy’s gritty nature on full display. The pace may slow on “Be Good To Yourself,” but the singer’s voice soars over the guitar-driven arrangement with the greatest of ease. Cramer and Stillwell join forces on “Walk In My Shadow,” a crunching rocker from Free, the band Paul Rogers fronted. Murphy once again achieves the perfect balance between tone, articulation, and a muscular vocal presentation. The title track is a Dobie Gray composition with gospel overtones that allows Murphy to lift up an impassioned, eloquent plea for a better world.

Blues, rock, ballads, it doesn’t matter – Shaun Murphy takes each song and gives it a personal touch, her voice never failing to touch some part of your musical soul. It is time for listeners to start paying attention to this outstanding vocalist.
