"Coryell's effortlessly smooth, funky chops and smoky vocals dominate a set that is as loose and uninhibited as it is delicately passionate...Stretching out, as to leave no corner of the stage sweat-free, Murali and his band go heavy on the hot sauce, turning in a performance that likely left a few blisters." (Mark Uricheck/Living Blues)
Shake-It-Sugar Records is proud to announce the release of singer/guitarist/songwriter MURALI CORYELL-LIVE CD/DVD on January 22, 2013.
Featuring 13 soul-drenched originals plus covers of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On", Sam Cooke's "Bring It On Home To Me" and Lowell Fulson's "Love Her With A Feeling", the CD was recorded live at Club Helsinki in Hudson, NY July 30, 2012 -- the bonus DVD was recorded at The Roots & Blues Festival in Salmon Arm, BC August 14, 2010.
"Live" is the follow-up to Murali's acclaimed 2009 release “Sugar Lips”. "Sugar Lips", "One sweet triptych across the musical map" (Courtney Harding/Billboard) was recorded in Nashville by Grammy-winning producer Tom Hambridge, featured special guests Joe Louis Walker and his father Larry Coryell and reached # 5 on The Living Blues Radio Chart . Listen to the Murali Coryell channel on Pandora. I look forward to hearing from fans, talent buyers, musicians, etc. and having a direct link between myself the artist and those interested in my musical recordings and performances.
