Murrell’s subtle and sensitive approach isn’t designed to be condescending or preachy. The title track, “Beautiful” has an infectious groove and anthem-like tribute that should resonate with all women. Another track, “Round Away Girl,” is devoted to inner city teens and young females, who have never been loved, had a father, or had a positive male influence in their life. Other tracks, “Whatever It Is,” “Inhale,” and “Interference,” aptly display Murrell’s penchant for offering uplifting and reinforcing messages to help women battle through tough love and rocky relationships.
Born and raised in Magnolia, New Jersey, Murrell cut his teeth opening up locally for a list of contemporary gospel stalwarts including, Mary, Mary, Byron Cage, Smokie Norful, John P Kee, and Martha Munizzi, among others. He has also recorded and performed as a background vocalist with r & b/urban stars Glenn Jones, Anne Nesby, Coko (of SWV fame), and sang background on a four-month national concert tour with Musiq Soulchild. After high school, he also enrolled and graduated from a recording engineering school that offered an 18-month program.
Murrell’s artistic passion and spiritually motivated sense of purpose are anchored by his family roots, which were embedded in the church. As the youngest of three siblings, he didn’t inherit any musical lineage from his family, but was heavily influenced by his childhood idols, Stevie Wonder, Brian McKnight, Boyz II Men and Fred Hammond. He accepted the challenge of performing his first choir solo, at age 5, and that auspicious debut triggered a lasting and close relationship with his musical minister, who mentored and tutored him as choir member and soloist into his late teens.
When he was 17, the day after Christmas, his mother was diagnosed with cancer. After putting up a courageous battle over the next fifteen months, she finally succumbed to the disease. He also suffered the lost of an older brother to kidney failure. To some, losing such cherished love ones would cause insurmountable pain and adversity, but Murrell’s unfailing faith in God and a resilient inner fortitude, gave him the strength to endure and keep moving forward.“My mother instilled and convinced me God could take anything and anyone and make it beautiful,” he confessed. She also taught me how precious women are, by the way she lived, and how she loved us.
