John Murry‘s The Graceless Age was the album of a lifetime. When it was released in 2012, it entered the hearts of thousands of listeners and gathered accolades from critics worldwide. An extraordinary work of breathtaking scope and ambition, it came from nowhere and seemed to have set up John Murry as a major artist. The album was listed by UNCUT as one of the 10 best records of 2012. Mojo also included it in their 10 best albums of 2013, as well as The Guardian in their Top 50 of 2013 and American Songwriter in their Top 5 of 2013.
We all listened to that album on repeat and with great excitement that the talent behind it would come to a venue near us so we could hear it live for the first time. But then things went quiet, nothing happened, nobody came. Hee Haw Sessions have spent many years trying to pin down John Murry. Having now promoted 2 previous Leeds shows, it is with great pleasure we can bring him back again for the first time since 2016.
