Stevie G: Radio playlists need more women

"Stevie G: Radio playlists need more women", Echo Live article, 25 May 2020.

"Denise Chaila is probably the most significant voice in music here right now. Zali, Erica Cody, Tolu Makay, Sorcha Richardson, Molly Sterling, Loah, Pillow Queens, Meghan Murray, Farah Elle, Orla Gartland, Lila Vargen, NC Grey and others make music that is accessible enough for more plays outside the off peak slots, but this is just the tip of the iceberg."

The Merch Perch, 26 March 2020.

"Meghan has been making waves in the Irish music scene with her debut EP ‘Out Of Mind’ released last year and recorded at the one and only Monique Studios. Her amalgamation of R&B, Soul and Pop have given her a fresh style of her own that she commands beautifully. I got sidetracked from writing this for far too long as I got lost in the dreamscape that is her debut EP. My favourite so far? Feeling Blue." - Sean de Faoite

Gig Review – Yenkee EP Launch with Meghan Murray and Ghostking is Dead @ Plugd in the Roundy – Culture Night 2019

University Express, 3 October 2019.

"Next up is the magical Meghan Murray. It is difficult not to feel entranced by the Belgian-born Murray, with crystal clear vocals and beautifully vulnerable songwriting. From start to finish Meghan claims the stage as entirely her own. Acknowledging her exceptional band, Meghan appears taken aback by the reaction of the crowd, many of whom know every word to some of her big singles like ‘Broken Ladders’ and ‘Feeling Blue’. She appears completely comfortable on stage showcasing some impressive vocal gymnastics in the funky ‘Space’ which gauges huge applause from the audience. By the end of her set Plugd has become an absolute sweatbox but the crowd is still left wanting more from one of the most exciting female artists to come out of Cork in the last while."

The Cork Woman Nurturing the New Generation of Irish Music

The Irish Examiner, 26 September 2019.

“Meghan is from Belgium. She lives in Cork where she moved to study music at UCC. She has a gorgeous R&B voice. Her voice is what hits you. It belies her age — she’s very young. She has one of those voices that seems to have another voice inside it — it’s really rich.” - Angela Dorgan, Ireland Music Week.

Premiere: Enjoy some late night sax vibes on Meghan Murray's new single 'Unconditional'

Featuring review of 'Unconditional' by Luke Sharkey, Nialler9, 10th September 2019:

"Cork R&B/soul artist Meghan Murray is busy prepping for the release of her debut EP this Friday.

Entitled, Out Of Mind , the 5 track EP will feature three singles already available to the public; 'Space', 'Broken Ladders' & 'Feeling Blue'.

Each of these tracks has been featured on our site. Each has aided in establishing Murray as a sincere and dynamic emerging Irish R&B/Soul artist.

Today, we’re premiering a new single from the artist. ‘Unconditional’ is a late-night R&B/jazz hybrid."


"Premiere: Meghan Murray marks herself out as a sincere talent on new single 'Feeling Blue'"

Featuring premiere of 'Feeling Blue' by Luke Sharkey, Nialler9, 27th June 2019:

"Based in Cork, Meghan Murray has been making quite the impression on us in 2019.

The R&B/Pop singer has all the hallmarks of an artist on the rise, catching our attention first with her debut single 'Space' and its follow up ‘Broken Ladders‘. Both tracks had a distinctly vintage soul feel, ‘Space’ with its wah-wah guitar rhythms and ‘Broken Ladders’ with its lush vocal harmonies.

Significant also is that each of Murray’s releases to date has been better than the last, that’s exactly why we wanted to premiere her new single ‘Feeling Blue’ on the site today."

Featuring a review of second single "Broken Ladders":

"‘Broken Ladders’ is the second single from Cork hailing Meghan Murray who first caught our attention with 'Space' a few months ago. Her second single is silky and smooth and all the things you want from a good pop song, not to mention the flawless vocal runs. We like this a lot."—Luke Sharkey, Nialler9, 11th April 2019.

"7 new Irish songs you should hear this week"—Nialler9

Featuring a review of debut single "Space":

"‘Space’ is the debut track from Cork based pop artist Meghan Murray. There’s a lot of classic R&B and funk noticeable in the track’s genetic makeup. The wah-wah rhythm guitar is probably the most overt tip of the hat to the latter. There’s a ton of interesting arrangement choices throughout the track, including some surprising string sounds. These disparate elements are pulled together beneath the artist’s vocal, which is focused and expressive. The track is taken from Murrays debut EP Out Of Mind, due out in May of this year."—Luke Sharkey, Nialler9, 13th March 2019.
