Pete Murray

Easy going and laidback, peace-loving Pete Murray brings his Yours Acoustically tour to Darwin Ski Club.

By Liz Trevaskis

What was the first concert you ever went to?

I saw Mondo Rock when I was 16 years old. I was in Caloundra on holidays and I went to the concert with my sister who was 18 at the time and some other friends.

What’s your favourite album of all time?

I love Everybody Knows This is Nowhere by Neil Young. I first heard this album when I was backpacking in Canada. I was working in a small town called Canmore, about one hour west of Calgary, in the Rocky Mountains. Canmore is surrounded by snow-capped mountains and is really beautiful. From the moment I first heard this album I loved it and I still love it today. There was something about Neil Young’s sound, and listening to it in that location, that really connected me to this album. When I listen to it today it always takes me back to that place and time.

Finish this sentence. My friends would describe me as…

Friendly and very easy going. My Zodiac sign is Libra so I’m all about peace and harmony, say no more.

Whose posters did you have stuck to the wall when you were a teenager?

I didn’t have any posters on my wall when I was a teenager but when I was about seven or eight I used to have a poster of Dracula on the wall. I’m not sure what that says about my personality!

Creative writing challenge – describe your sound in three words.

Meaningful, laidback and inspirational.
