Upcoming Release 'Murray's Law' by Murray Brothers

The debut album "Murrays Law" is a milestone in a remarkable journey for the Murray Brothers - Out July 9th 2021 on Lyte Records.

Born in Falcarragh, Co. Donegal, twin brothers Micheal and Conor Murray have been playing jazz since the age of twelve. Growing up around traditional music, they sparked the curiosity of leading Irish jazz musician David Lyttle at the age of 16, going on to study with him and, in more recent years, touring with him professionally. Now 24 and graduates of Glasgow's Royal Conservatoire of Scotland under Tommy Smith, their debut album Murrays Law cements their reputations as Irish jazz stars on the rise and young international voices to take note of.
