Murali Coryell is a triple threat contemporary blues artist who can sing, write and play guitar with the best in the business. As the son of guitar legend Larry Coryell, Murali grew up around the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, & 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 in which Rolling Stone named Murali “One promising new hound”. Over the years Murali has toured with father Larry Coryell and Joe Louis Walker as a featured artist and appeared many times as supporting act for B.B. King. “Murali’s latest CD “Sugar Lips” reached # 5 in 2010 on the Living Blues Radio Chart was recorded in Nashville with Tom Hambridge 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 lovers can listen to the Murali Coryell channel on Pandora. The official website is

The release and touring behind Murali Coryell’s latest CD release “Sugar Lips” has drawn praise from such music heavyweights as Jimmy Webb, Judy Collins and Joe Louis Walker.
Acclaimed by Billboard, CNN, Rolling Stone, & The New York Times, singer/guitarist/songwriter Murali Coryell is a rising force in contemporary American music. As the son of jazz guitar legend Larry Coryell and author/actress Julie Coryell and grandson of TV, film and stage actress Carol Bruce, Murali was born into an entertainment family. Murali has a voice, a guitar style and a musical intuition that enable him to excel at many different kinds of music. To quote Mark Uricheck in reviewing “Sugar Lips” in Living Blues Magazine “He can play beer-soaked blues until last call, and he can also hang with more pop-tinged material-think a grittier, bluesier John Mayer.”
“Murali’s latest CD “Sugar Lips” released November 17, 2009 reached # 5 on the Living Blues Radio Chart was recorded in Nashville with Grammy nominated producer Tom Hambridge featuring special guest stars Joe Louis Walker and Larry Coryell. The CD has also garnered features and rave reviews in Guitar Player Magazine, Elmore Magazine, Living Blues, and newspapers across the United States. Murali Coryell can be seen this year performing extensively as a featured artist with Joe Louis Walker. Murali has toured as the supporting act for B.B. King and played with Buddy Guy, Levon Helm, George Clinton, George Thorogood & Gavin DeGraw among others. Murali’s music can be heard on independent, college, blues, internet, Pandora and public radio. As a performer, songwriter and producer Murali has built up a body of hook laden classic and contemporary blues, rock and soul songs that have appeared in TV, film and been covered by other artists.
Over the course of multiple solo CD’s as well as in collaboration with his father Larry and brother Julian, Murali has recorded the songs of Sam Cooke, Al Green, Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters, Charles Mingus and Marvin Gaye as well as the Chess Chicago blues classics on the CD co-produced by Marshall Chess “2120”. Murali’s voice and guitar has been heard on NBC’s TV show “Crossing Jordan”. Murali Coryell is a fully realized artist in complete control of a voice with soul to burn and the tastiest of guitar chops.

The singing begins at 6:00 every Monday night. For all the schooner heads this is quite a thing to see. If you have someone coming into town and want to hear and see something very different it can be pretty cool.

Be warned though- don’t go planning a meeting or meet-up where you think you’re going to be able to carry on a conversation while they are singing. Best to plan it for a different night at the Dog Bar.

      I moved your your message into the body of the blog with other information to go along with it. Take a look. Did this go on GoodMorningGloucester separately?

      • Ann said,

        Wow, Joanne–thanks so much! That looks super! I filled out the online form and sent the info to GoodMorningGloucester, but I have not seen it mentioned–and the concert is this weekend. Again, thanks so much! Bob’s music is really fantastic.

  2. Joanne said,

    Hi Ann,
    I went ahead and put the same info on GoodMorningGloucester, today.
