Alex McMurray – Milo’s Music Parlor – It’s New Orleans
For New Jersey native Alex McMurray, it was NOT love at first sight when he moved to New Orleans 28 years ago. But like many of us, he learned to love it, and found himself returning from New York after Katrina, even AFTER realizing “You have to be crazy to live in this Town”, an idea that became the title of one of his post-Katrina songs. His music can be described as lyrical and imaginative–what you might hear if Elvis Costello and Randy Newman had a child together, but with distinct New Orleans flair and songwriting edge of his very own. An amazing multi-tasker, Alex shares stories of his college days at Tulane, to singing sea chanties in Tokyo’s Disneyland dressed up like Captain Crunch.
