Bob Murray, a former professional hockey player, business executive, poet-recluse, and high school English teacher, is a Johnny-Come-Lately to the musical stage. In fact, were it not for his steadfast willingness to be guided by the messages of his dreams, the Guild guitar he purchased about twenty years ago would still be gathering dust in the attic and the closest heâd have ever come to the stage in this lifetime would have been the front row. But he is singing and playing that Guild guitar for audiences these days, and the narrative of the title song, âO Boss Man,â played a significant role in that shift. About five years ago, in a dream, Bruce Springsteen invited Murray to join him on stage to play and sing. Scared, yet apparently willing, Murray stepped up.
Two solo albums later, he is still stepping up and into unfamiliar territory, toward places where fear residesâin this case, into the vulnerability of working collaboratively with his good friend, Jeremiah McLane. About this, he says, âI can see now that the more I was genuinely willing to enter into this relationship with Jer, the richer the rewards. Talk about a gift, or rather, gifts--a deeper level of authenticity in our friendship (something I've never been very good at) which clearly manifest itself in the depth of the creative work we did together. The song, O Boss Man, is a great example. Written about five years ago and intended as a solo effort accompanied only by acoustic guitar, I've witnessed its evolution over the past few months at the hands of Jer's genius for arrangement and accompaniment into this glorious anthem that has seemingly taken on a life of its own. I love it--it is rich, and layered, and gathers steam from verse to verse...not unlike, it would seem, the gathering steam and strength of our friendshipâsomething I both respect and treasure.â
