Biography

13 March 1945, Dallas, Texas, USA. Having been influenced by gospel music at an early age, Murphey aspired to become a Baptist minister. From 1965-70, as a staff songwriter for Screen Gems, Murphey was writing theme tunes and soundtrack material for television. He grew disillusioned with the poor financial rewards, and left. For a short time he was a member of the Lewis And Clarke Expedition, which he formed with Owen Castleman, before going solo. Geronimo’s Cadillac was produced in Nashville by Bob Johnston, who was responsible for Murphey’s signing with A&M Records. The title track was released as a single, and achieved a Top 40 place in the USA pop charts. As well as folk, country and blues, Murphey’s early gospel leanings are evident in the overall sound of what is an excellent album. He signed to Epic Records in 1973 after releasing Cosmic Cowboy Souvenir, which continued the urban cowboy theme of his earlier work. Michael Martin Murphey...
