Murray has worked in music industry PR for over 30 years representing names like Kylie, the Petshop Boys, Coldplay, Yoko Ono and many more. He’s been running MCPR for 10 years now and has decided to make the move back to Dundee to start a new chapter in his career.
Murray talks about growing up in Lochee and always being part of an alternative scene and some of the difficulties that come with that. Eventually, the pull of the music scene in London became too great. He ended up living between squats and making ends meet however possible just to be part of an amazing time in the city’s history. Through a friend’s prison stint Murray ended up being persuaded to get into music PR. Off the back of that, he built a 30+ year career with 20 years at EMI records and then 10 running his own company.
Now he has decided to take a different direction and move back to Dundee to work with Jennie Patterson. It’s brilliant to see the lure of Dundee’s changes bringing people like Murray back and hopefully he is one of many.
