A singer songwriter par excellence, for decades Kathy Murray has helped keep a spotlight on the Texas capital’s music scene. She cut her teeth during the golden era of Austin’s blues and R&B, sharing the stage with the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, the Fabulous Thunderbirds and blues godfather W.C. Clark. In addition, she also took her rightful place among a veritable Murderer’s Row of formidable Austin blues women, including Marcia Ball, Lou Ann Barton and Angela Strehli. Along with The Kilowatts, she has shared the stage with headliners of the caliber of Albert Collins, Bobby “Blue” Bland, Albert King, Koko Taylor and others.
Following the 2018 release of the acclaimed Premonition of Love, Austin's GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Kathy Murray and her band, the Kilowatts, return with Fully Charged, a high voltage blues collection released in February of 2022. Murray's immersion in the music of Freddie King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and the Fabulous Thunderbirds, along with the many regional styles of Texas roots music, are in powerful evidence throughout eleven sublime originals and three fresh covers. For lovers of Texas blues, Fully Charged takes the listener on an electrifying ride, showcasing Murray at the peak of her mastery of American roadhouse music.
