Chicago Artist Jim Murray releases “Ó m’anam”solo album of Irish music

Chicago Artist Jim Murray releases “Ó m’anam”solo album of Irish music on March 17, St Patrick’s Day. The album is available for prerelease on Itunes, Google Play and Amazon Jim’s much anticipated Tenth CD and Second solo album, “Ó m’anam” (from my soul) reflects his focused passion as a vocalist and his hard-won maturity as a musician. Envisioned as a return to his roots and a life journey, the album pairs Irish standards with newer Irish music delivered with hard-hitting emotion and thoughtful reflection. The liner notes even have a photo of his great grandfather who came to America from Ireland. Over the course of 18 tracks Jim reveals her vocal depth and versatility as he transports listeners down the rough roads of love, struggle, heartbreak, and faith. In this CD Jim showcases his singing and multiple talents by also providing backing vocals, drums, percussion and bodhrán. He once again works with his good friend well-known session man and multi-instrumentalist John Rice (acoustic and electric guitars, dobro, fiddle, mandolin, banjo and piano) (Mavis Staples, Blind Boys of Alabama, Wilco) who provides arrangements and assisted in organizing and bringing together Irish players John Williams (accordions and whistles) (Five All-Ireland titles, Solas, Dean Magraw) and Sean Ryan (uilleann pipes)(multiple All-Ireland awards on three instruments, Trinity Irish Dance Company, Chicago’s Orchestra Hall.) These featured musician friends enjoy many shared traits and brilliantly contribute to 17 diverse yet related songs. Jim taps a number of resources, ranging from these traditional Irish musicians to musician friends he has played with live and in the studio including Eric Hochberg (Kurt Elling, Pat Metheny, Howard Levy) and Klem Hayes (Alan Parsons, Spencer Davis, Survivor), playing bass and singing by Patti and Harry Reinhart and Tom Kro from The Midnight Band and piano and synthesizer work from his friend Frank Lucas (Jennifer Lopez, Fire Garden, Dee Snider.) He has enlisted the exceptional backing vocals of Mary Lou O’Brien who contributes her lovely voice on many of the songs. The result is an album that is both ambitious in its new interpretation and comfortably traditional while taking the listener on Jim’s personal journey back to his Irish roots. Jim has had a keen interest in music since his first professional performance at the age of 8 years in Southern Michigan. Murray has played in, recorded and produced many other different styles and other projects including Midnight, RPM, Nightflight, “Brother John” Kattke, Soul Shakedown, Michael McDermott and Three Fingers; created commercials and jingles for clients such as Crown; and has been a musical director, working on composition, score, and sound design for films such as “Carnival” and “Changingman”. Music lovers in his hometown of Chicago and throughout the Midwest know him as a local favorite who is soulful, warm and charismatic. Jim is a performer, producer and recording artist whose three critically acclaimed, independently produced albums with Skip Towne and the Greyhounds, a record with The Drunk Whisperers, and a solo CD, “This Love of Mine” that have captured the ears of Chicago and thousands of dedicated fans. The album is available for prerelease onó-manam/id1...Ó_M_anam?id=Btjf2iqqkyed4x35cdqspf3ny44 and A video on this Irish music album is available
