To Hell with this group of monsters, every last one of them, and all suffering to everyone who knew this was happening, and stayed silent, or worse, used their power in the Church to cover up the abuse. My job is my job, and if I said I don't enjoy it I'd be lying, but I will never not use my platform to call these degenerates out for the disgusting people they are.
A lil #CarlySimon to push through this week? Also, check out my IGTV channel for a full cover of one of my favorite songs as covered by the lovely @mindygledhill. #iamanomaly #pmurraymusic #queerartists #nycindie #coverslipclip #popsongs #classicpop #coversongs

Sometimes, all you can do is talk about what you observed. I saw this story on the news yesterday afternoon before going out to see Bae. Upon making my way home from Chelsea, sitting on the downtown train, a man who had clearly tied a few on 🥃 sits down next to me and begins to ramble, amongst other things that included baseball and football, his kids. Once he got on that subject, he couldn't stop until he tapped me on the shoulder to tell me, Did you see that story on the news about those two kids who got found in Manhattan after they went missing? Those are my children. I think the worst part about my reaction was my instinct 2 believe he was lying. I did not know what to make of it, until he got on his phone and proceeded to speak to a family member about how he was coming up from wherever he was originally to see them. Evidently he and the mother had a falling-out, I assume because of his habit. The pain in his voice was indescribable, and the alcohol was trying to make him laugh it off. Ultimately, he was just relieved they were safe. This is the society we live in. Where a Black father of two kids can fall into the throes of addiction, and all we want to do is ignore him and hope he goes away. This is why I don't care for this society at all. What the hell are we doing? #blacklivesmatter #protectblackchildren
#tbt I love that this is still up on the wall at The Bitter End. I essentially put a lid on making/releasing content and/or doing full shows the past year-and-a-half, for various reasons. But things finally seem to be lining up again, and so it is my hope that I can make another push to share my work with you, as well as get on stage again. I have no doubt that the first place I'll be hitting is my favorite spot in New York City. As they say in the Caribbean, soon come. Thank you, as always, for your continued love and support. #bitterendnyc #pmurraymusic #iamanomaly #afrolatinx #singersongwriter #nycmusic
Speaking with Bridget after this gig on Friday night, she told me this was some of her most honest work, that it was important to use her gift as catharsis for what she herself described as an incredibly difficult breakup. Sometimes the words of the late great Carrie Fisher really ring true: “Take your broken heart, and make it into art.” There’s no question that’s exactly what BK did, and the result is what you see here; need I say more? I challenge all of you to go out and stream/purchase her new album, #RealityBites. Like I told her, from top to bottom, the project shines. Congrats on a great show, love! Y'all follow @iambridgetkelly too 🤟 #inspired #bridgetkelly #BK #goodmusic #womeninmusic #DopeBand #Singer #Songwriter #theycallmebk #iambridgetkelly #pmurraymusic
Sending all love, all light to the families of these two Black women, whose lives were cut short because of White America. Please do the same. #blackwomenmatter #sayhername
