LAKE PLACID - Murali Coryell will appear at Delta Blue from 9 p.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday.
As part of the continuing blues programming at Delta Blue, Shake-it-Sugar Records recording artist Coryell, a triple-threat contemporary blues artist who can sing, write, and play guitar with the best in the business will be coming to Lake Placid.
As the son of guitar legend Larry Coryell, Murali grew up around the likes of Jimmy Hendrix, Miles Davis, and Carlos Santana.
In 1995, Murali joined Duke Robillard's touring band and was quickly signed as a solo artist resulting in the stax/volt influenced "Eyes Wide Open". In 1999, Murali recorded "2120" for Marshall Chess for which Rolling Stone named Murali "One promising new hound".
Over the years, Murali has toured with his father, Larry, and Joe Louis Walker as a featured artist, and appeared many times as a supporting act for B.B. King.
Murali's latest CD, "Sugar Lips," which reached No. 5 in 2010 on Living Blues Radio Chart, was recorded in Nashville with Tom Hambridge, the producer of Buddy Guy's latest Grammy winner. Featuring special guest stars Joe Louis Walker and Larry Coryell, Cortney Harding of Billboard called it "one sweet triptych across the musical map."
The CD received rave reviews in Living Blues and Elmore Magazines and also resulted in a Murali Coryell feature in Guitar Player Magazine. Internet music listeners can hear the Murali Coryell channel on Pandora. The official website is www.muralicoryell.com.
Shake-It-Sugar Records has recently announced the release of "Murali Coryell -?Live CD/DVD," featuring 13 soul-drenched originals plus covers of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On," Sam Cooke's "Bring It On Home To Me" and Lowell Fulson's "Love Her With Feeling" recorded live on July 30th, 2012.
