Pete Murray’s debut album, the roots/rock infused ‘Feeler’, sold 6 x platinum in Australia (450,000 copies) and earned 12 ARIA Award nominations. ‘Feeler’ eventually spent over two and a half years, yes years, in the Top 100. The acclaimed album spawned his classic ‘So Beautiful’ which went on to become the Most Performed Australian Song of the Year.
His sophomore album, ‘See The Sun’ debuted at #1 in Australia. The first single ‘Better Days’ became a #1 airplay track while ‘Opportunity’ became the biggest song of the year, earning the most played track at Australian radio.
Pete released his third album ‘Summer At Eureka’, debuting at #1 in Australia and making it Pete Murray’s third consecutive album to hit the top of the charts. Pete’s fourth studio album ‘Blue Sky Blue’ sold GOLD and spawned the hits ‘Always A Winner’ and ‘Free’.
Pete released “The Byron Sessions” an album with new acoustic versions of tracks from his Blue Sky Blue album. Later that same year, Feeler was re-released as a 2CD package – Disc 1 being the original recordings remastered in London at Abbey Road Studios and Disc 2 including the Bulgarian Symphony Orchestra playing on all songs.
Pete went on to release the first of a two-part EP in March 2021 The Night. His second official single from the EP, If We Never Dance Again was co-written with Nashville based writer and producer Morgan Dorr.
In 2021, BEFORE I GO was written and recorded just before the Covid-19 pandemic struck. As someone who normally takes their time recording, this EP was the companion to previous EP ‘The Night’ and was recorded over 2 years (combining to The Night Before I Go). Pete spent some of his time overseas song writing for the first time with other artists, which then turned in to a bit of back and forth perfecting them once he was back at his studio in Byron during the pandemic with writers based in both the US and UK. He also spent a lot of time with Garrett Kato at his studio in Byron Bay, who produced the EP. “Garrett gets a great warm sound which I love and he and I are great mates so it was a lot of fun working together.”
