Home for Misfits

(PR) Kaz Murphy is a well-traveled singer/songwriter with a knack for reinventing his music. Stirring the pot of the rich Los Angeles roots rock scene for the last two years, Murphy emerges with Home for Misfits, an album that reaches across the pop/country divide. Weaned on Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Bobby Gentry and Leadbelly, Murphy sets aside his alt-country leanings to cross back to his Lovin' Spoonful / Simon & Garfunkel / Mamas and the Papas roots. With a voice as distinct as Tom Petty, John Prine, David Byrne or Dylan, Murphy has coined an album with a classic rock mood - and a current pop/Latin edge - a highly melodic, rhythmic roots rock album with a nod to his '60s and '70s pop heroes.

Murphy's new album Home for Misfits will be released in the fall of 2007. For this album Murphy retreated to the studio, spending almost two years writing new material. Culling from the wealth of talent that is the LA music scene, Murphy and co-producer Rich McCulley enlisted support in the studio from Murphy's long-time band members Brian Young (Fountains of Wayne, Ivy), John Skibic and Sully Sullivan (Ivy, Twilight Singers), and wife Jacqueline Grad, along with McCulley, Amy Farris, Kip Boardman, John McDuffie and Duane Jarvis.

What have emerged are Kaz's best work yet, a sonically rich and emotionally compelling collection of songs that share the stories of ordinary people gone awry; Home for Misfits authentically examines through carefully taken long-shots and close-ups, the misfit that lingers in all of us.
