Songwriters often bring us that song we need to express our feelings, to reflect, and maybe even to heal. "I know we've all lost something in life and stood there thinking, 'Where do I go from here?'" says Chuck Murphy about his new single “How Many Times”. The single speaks to love and loss and that feeling of helplessness we have all experienced.
“Chuck Murphy’s “Peace Be With You” is a timeless piece of Americana, tying together the smoothed-out sounds of seventies’ rock, country guitar, and a whole heap of charisma to make for a delightful outing. Murphy’s vocals are unparalleled, possessing a familiarity while being wholly unique. The multiple vocal layers on Peace Be With You give a certain substance to the single; the story told within its four minutes is much greater than what typically resides in a song. With hints of Warren Zevon and Tom Petty, Chuck Murphy succeeds with his latest work.”
