Jim Lundstrom of Door County's Peninsula Pulse was kind enough to review Kickin' The Dream. His review includes these kind words:
"Murphy’s singing on much of the record reminds me of Steven Stills, especially on the great “Blue Highway” and on “Empty Your Bucket.” And on “Big Red & Old Blue” he evokes a John Prine-like sound. He admits in one of the songs (“Critical Acclaim”) to having covered these gents and others in the past, but the influence is a natural extension of himself rather than mimicry."
Thank you, Jim! The full review can be found here: http://www.ppulse.com
