"A keyboard wizard." The New Yorker

“Bob Malone doesn't just accompany himself on piano. He supports his singing with pulsating, roaring keyboard work that grabs you and shakes you until you cry for mercy.” — Keyboard Magazine



SHAUN MURPHY BIO

As a young woman in 1969, Shaun Murphy found her way to the Blues stage at the first Ann Arbor Blues Fest, and was completely smitten. Music had captivated her and she had truly
found her calling. After a brief stint on Broadway, she had the opportunity to land a recording contract on Motown Records to record a duo album with Meatloaf, called Stoney and Meatloaf.
Her time at Motown was wonderful and after these many years in LA, I had been invited to record and tour with her old friend, Bob Seger, what an honor!
During a hiatus with Bob, she was asked if she’d be interested in coming to record the backing vocals on Eric Clapton’s ‘Behind The Sun’ album. They recorded this great record, and Eric asked her if she’d like to do the tour, it was too good to be true! Not only that, but a following tour as well!!!
It was on Bob Seger tour in ’86 that she met Bill Payne and Fred Tackett, two of the members of the legendary band Little Feat. A little after recording on the re-grouped band’s CD, Let It Roll, they asked her to join as a full member in 93’, and for the next nearly 16 years, it was her home.
It was after this stint with Little Feat that she realized she’d come full circle back to where she started, in the world of the Blues.
She was fortunate in 2013 to win the Bluesblast Music Awards, Best Female Blues Artist Of The Year, and also won Best Contemporary Blues Album Of The Year for her release of Ask For The Moon, as well as three Grammy nominations.
Her CD, It Won’t Stop Raining, brought her a nomination for the Koko Taylor Award From the Blues Foundation.
With her most current release, Mighty Gates, created a cross-genre CD
of which she wrote 7 of the tunes and included a couple from her favorite artists. Dobie Gray had sent her the song ‘Mighty Gates’ a little
over 5 years ago, and she thought it a perfect fit for the times!

MEMORY MOTEL
Songwriters: Keith Richards / Mick Jagger
Publishers: Sony / ATV Music Publishing LLC


Hannah baby was a peachy kind of girl
Her eyes were hazel, and her teeth were slightly curved
We spent a lonely night, at the Memory Motel
It's on the ocean, I guess you know it well
It took one starry night, to steal my breath away
Out on the waterfront
Her hair - all - drenched in, spray

Hannah baby was a honey of a girl
Her eyes were hazel, and her teeth were slightly curved
She took my guitar, and she began to play
She sang a song to me
Stuck right in my brain

You're just a memory
Of a love that used to be
You're just a memory
Of a love, that used to mean so much to me

She got a mind of her own
And she use it well - yes she does
She got a mind of her own
And she use it mighty fine

She drove a pick-up truck
Painted green and blue
The tires were wearing thin
She’d done a mile or two
When I asked her, where she’s headed for
"Back up to Boston, I'm singing in a bar"

You're just a memory
Of a love that used to be
You're just a memory
Of a love, that used to mean so much to me

She got a mind of her own
And she use it well - yes she does, all right

On the seventh day, my eyes were all a glaze
We’d been ten thousand miles, been in fifteen states
Every woman seemed to fade out of my mind
I hit the bottle, and hit the sack and cried

What’s all the laughter on the 22nd floor
It’s just some friends of mine, and they’re busting down the door
It’s been a lonely night, at the memory motel
I’ll tell you ‘bout it now, I’ll tell you ‘bout it now

You're just a memory
Of a love, that used to be
You're just a memory
Of a love, that used to mean so much to me

Sha la la la la

She got a mind of her own
And she use it, mighty fine
