The idea behind The Artist Choice Series is not to make a show of an musician’s biggest songs, but to have the artist themselves pick the songs that mean the most to them.
For a first set, I wanted to ask Mike Murray. I became aware of his music in 2016 around the release of his album Summer. The first time he appeared in a set of mine was when Lemon Pepper opened Urban Daydreams - Cruise Control. Since then he has popped up often in my shows. I love the vibe his music gives me, the keyboards and soundscapes creating a smooth atmosphere every time I listen.
This show is "his" creation; Mike chose for me 23 tracks that mean a little extra to him and I took it from there.
Thank you so much Mike for not only saying yes and for being the first of what I hope can be an interesting series, but for entrusting your favorites with me. It was a wonderful pleasure putting this together with you and I hope you like it.
