Event Archive - Warren Murfitt, Paul Pigat, Lee Watson (The Breakmen)

Mon. April 8th 2013 Railway Club (No Minors)
8 PM
$7 at the door only.
Warren Murfitt's music harkens back to a time when country music was unaffected, had tender lyrics and came straight from the heart. This will be an evening of original country music in celebration of his CD ‘Lonesome Curve’. It’s sure to be a night full of old school lovin’, cheatin’ and hurtin’.
“Warren Murfitt's first album under his own name is so guilelessly straightforward, you could be forgiven for thinking that this cowboy- hatted singer-songwriter and his old-school country tunes got frozen in amber (or bourbon) in some saloon miles from anyone who has any digital anything."
- Ken Eisener, The Georgia Straight

You'd never think it to look at Paul Pigat, but behind that unassuming grin and underneath those Doc Watson glasses lurks one of the most restless, combustible musical imaginations ever crammed like so much canned heat into a single body. Blessed with a jazz man's sheen, a rockabilly heart and a hobo's soul, there aren't many genres of music that don't pull at Pigat's wayfaring imagination like a magnet. In many ways, it's a mystery why Paul Pigat isn't a household name yet. Maybe he'd be a lot easier to pin down if he wasn't so darn good at so many different things.
One could be forgiven for thinking that up until now Paul Pigat has spent his whole career flying under the radar. Like all those great old Stax records where Steve Cropper stood behind Otis Redding and played his heart out before anyone knew who he was, Pigat has been creating sweet sounds for some of the best artists in the country without getting the attention you'd expect. Still, you'd have to have been hiding under a pretty big rock to have never heard the immediately recognizable sound of his distinctive guitar playing as over the last several years this unassuming Vancouver native has quietly compiled a list of credits that would be the envy of anyone in the music business.
