Murray started to learn the guitar at age 22 and his ability soon improved with plenty of practice.Eventually, he worked up the courage to take his guitar to a barbecue singing songs by Neil Young and Crowded House. However, his main interest was traveling and pursuing a career in sports medicine.
In early 2003, Murray signed a contract with Sony BMG and he entered the studio with producer Paul McKercher and his band (consisting of Ben McCarthy on bass guitar and keyboards, Christian Sargeant on drums, Paul Tyrell on guitar and Col McIntyre on reeds & flute) to make the Feeler album. On his website, Murray outlines the type of record he was hoping to make. “The records I love by people like Nick Drake, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, they are built to last. I wanted this to be an album like that, something you can pull out in 30 years and still hear the feeling in it, rather than something that’s dated by the musical fashions of the day.”
Feeler was released on 21 July 2003 with the title track as the first single. Triple J radio started playing the track with the Nova FM and Triple M networks picking it up. With this support, Feeler entered the ARIA top 50 album charts in 2003. His reputation was building fast and he started selling out shows in smaller venues.
Murray’s third studio album, See the Sun was released in September 2005. The album spawned three official singles, “Better Days”, “Opportunity” and “George’s Helper”, while a video was made for radio single “Class A”. Days after its release, Murray performed at the 2005 NRL grand final. See the Sun sold 350,000 copies.
His fourth studio album, Summer at Eureka, was released on 17 May 2008. On 26 May 2008, it entered the charts at number 1 in Australia, his third consecutive chart-topping album. The first single from the album was “You Pick Me Up”, which reached number 36 on the Australian charts. The second single from the album, “Saving Grace”, was released on 2 August 2008.
