There aren’t many bands that have a unique sound these days. Some try to imitate the greats and even more try to sound like what’s on the radio. Not this one. Breaking the mould is a somewhat contemporary folk rock group from Cape Town, Holiday Murray. The band, made up of Ellis Silverman on drums, Chris Carter on bass and violin, James Tuft on lead vocals and guitar and Justin Davenport on electric guitar, say their genre needs to be defined by the listeners rather than themselves. Many listeners have categorised Holiday Murray’s music into the genres of either folk or rock, but according to the band it is a variety of genres. With their hit single ” Jirey” on the charts nationally they came to Studio 7 to perform and exclusive acoustic session.
