Kaz Murphy from the album Ride Out the Storm available on Barn Wall Media
The wisdom of experience is the answer that Kaz Murphy provides as a DIY-guide on Ride Out the Storm, his recent release. When Kaz stands in front of the faithful he sermonizes the joy of oneness with “When People Come Together”, his words positive and never preachy, Kaz Murphy shows simple steps to take for better times. Ride Out the Storm rises and falls in an ocean of humanity, climbing mountains to search for bright skies (“A Sunny Day”) as it watches for the gifts a night has to hold (“Somebody Could Be Me”). Kaz Murphy is wanderer, traveling in his tunes when “Thunderhead” maps out the southwest, walking under clouds that form as signs of trouble in “Blue Devil Sky”. Ride Out the Storm addresses our times, providing exits for the stress and strain of responsibility, uniting souls with shared subjects of love, addiction, political upheaval, and financial hurdles, Kaz Murphy creating a worldwide community in “Where You Come From”.
Kaz Murphy is the guy sitting alone smiling in a coffee shop or corner bar, his eyes recording and translating the life around him. Ride Out the Storm begins “All I Wanna Do is Work” with a chant, the storyline explaining the goals set in the song title as personal, Kaz Murphy sharing how he exercises out mental kinks as he stretches memories, weaving good times and bad times into the tale. Humanity strikes a chord on Ride Out the Storm, the songs suggesting letting go of the day (“Forget About the World Tonight”) as they relate inspirational tales (“Soft Heart”) and hard luck wandering through desert towns (“Stella Mae”). Kaz Murphy exits on a shuffle, hopes and head held high as he out of Ride Out the Storm on a motivational groove for “Rise Me Up”.
