Biography

Originally from North Augusta, SC - the town across the river from Augusta, Georgia where he was born, Carey Murdock relocated to Nashville, Tennessee in August of 2011 after years of touring based out of Augusta. Sharon Jones, the famed soul singer, called and left him a voicemail to wish him luck on his move to Music City.

Carey Murdock has since shared the stage with Shovels and Rope, Shawn Mullins, Tracy Lawrence, Mountain Heart, Jessica Lea Mayfield, and more. His latest album "Baby Don't Look Down" was produced by Patrick Blanchard(Shawn Mullins), features Cary Ann Hearst of Shovels & Rope on guest vocals, and Bandcamp named it a Staff Pick Favorite.

Currently, Carey Murdock tours the US and Europe regularly. He just wrapped up the first of many sessions with producer Rick Beato (Needtobreathe, Crowfield, Shinedown) on what is the first of many "digital 45" releases. This session produced the new songs "Shot in the Dark" and "You're Leaving Me" which are to be released January 9, 2013.

Lyrics

Don't Look Down

Written By: JC Murdock

In the howling winds and starless nights
She often wonders who she is.
Lying awake her dreams all slumbering
Timid to walk out on the edge

Baby, don’t look down

In and out of tears, she lets her thoughts vent here as I comb her brunette hair.
She’s come a long, long way.
She knows we’re prone to break,
but its not over when we fall.

Baby, don’t look down
‘cause things are looking up.

In four years she wed and set sail with her boy,
And happily took him as her man.
But the tides have ebbed and his anger reared its head.
And she’s scared the ship won’t survive the storm.

Baby, don’t look down
‘cause things are looking up.
