Murali Coryell & Band
"Stevie Ray Vaughn meets James Brown meets Gladys Knight." - John Barry/Poughkeepsie Journal
"Mr. Coryell fires on all cylinders, track after track, with strong originals, his reliably soulful vocals and subtly dazzling, fluid solos". - Duane Verh/Roots Music Report
Coryell is a triple threat contemporary blues artist who sings, writes and plays guitar with the best. As the son of guitar legend Larry Coryell, Murali grew up with Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, & Carlos Santana.
Murali joined Duke Robillard’s touring band and was signed as a solo artist resulting in the Stax/Volt-influenced “Eyes Wide Open”. Rolling Stone magazine named Murali “One promising new hound”. He has toured with father Larry Coryell and Joe Louis Walker as a featured artist and as a supporting act for B.B. King.
Murali’s CD "Sugar Lips" (2009) reached # 5 on the Living Blues Radio Chart - recorded in Nashville with Tom Hambridge producer of Buddy Guy’s latest Grammy winner and featured guests, Joe Louis Walker and Larry Coryell. Billboard called it “one sweet triptych across the musical map”. Rave reviews appeared in Living Blues and Elmore Magazines resulting in a Guitar Player Magazine feature.
Coryell's album, Restless Mind (2015) is funky, bluesy, jazzy, and guitar driven. Murali does a great job of being a “standard” bluesman by singing about everyday woes such as love, life, money, struggles, and women.
