With a little help from his friends

If you're a Pete Murray fan, you'll be well aware that his latest studio album, Blue Sky Blue, is the blueprint for his new acoustic-based record, Blue Sky Blue: The Byron Sessions. It's the result of his desire to give an acoustic feel, using Byron-based musician pals, to familiar songs - an idea that he's now taking out on the road.

"I was talking to my management about what to do next and we decided to do a solo tour," said Pete. "I didn't want to do a greatest hits, so we decided on an acoustic interpretation of electric albums -particularly Blue Sky Blue."

That record contained contributions from Byron locals such as Ash Grunwald and Scott Owen (The Living End), Katie Noonan, Busby Marou and Bernard Fanning and Darren Middleton (Powderfinger). Together with Nathan Kaye on beatbox and slide guitar, Pete is now touring the concept, and plays the Lismore Workers Club on Thursday, February 21, as part of 44-date national tour.
