Luddy Mussy is colorful, almost cartoonish music made by lunatics. With eccentric takes on genres ranging from blues, modern rock, surf rock and folk, Luddy serves up an original little something for any musical palate. An energetic party band with a songwritery twist, Luddy has ripped off various bands, from the Rolling Stones to the B-52s, with basically no regard for copyright laws. As a result, the band currently resides on a barge in international waters.
Audrey Ryan is a funky cool jazz folk rock goddess. Sometimes her soprano voice sounds like Joni Mitchell's jazzier periods, but other times it takes on the flat effect of a modern singer-songwriter. Most of the tunes are structured around her percussive guitar chord progressions in groovy minor sevenths and other unexpected treats. She also plays violin and is joined by a great band that can't decide on any one genre, and that's okay by me. Most of her tunes are more about the feel than the lyrics. The words are more like snapshots than a full movie you're not always sure what the plot is, but the images are sharp. - indie Music .com
PUTNAM MURDOCK - In addition to his live performances, he has also established his songwriting career by co-writing songs that have been featured in the television shows "Joan of Arcadia," "Dawsons Creek," "MTV's Made," and "The Biggest Loser." The song "When it Comes Around" appeared in the motion picture "Just Friends" and is also included on the soundtrack. In 2009, the song "Jersey Whiskey" won an Honorable Mention in the Americana category of the International Songwriting Competition and his debut album, Fiction, along with the track "Bright Future" were placed on the Official Ballot for the Grammy Awards in five categories. Recently, the song "When I Die," off his record Brand New Widow, was selected as the winner of the 2012 We Are Listening Singer/Songwriter Awards.
After a stint in Brooklyn, where Murdock performed and co-produced the debut records for Kenny Cambre The Guy You Cheer For, and Kara Suzanne Aumsville, he now resides in southern Massachusetts. Currently, he is recording music for several documentary films by Ken Burns as well as touring the northeastern U.S. in support of his recent release, Brand New Widow, recorded and co-produced by Bryan Pugh at Dreamland Recording Studios in West Hurley, NY.
