Kathy Murray _ Kilowatt Music Kathy Murray Austin Kathy & the Kilowatts, with lead singer and songwriter Kathy Murray at the helm, has been making real-deal Texas roots music for nearly four decades. Their new recording, “Let’s Do This Thing!”, is comprised of 15 Kathy Murray originals, and reflects Murray’s lifelong fermentation in the classic regional styles of Texas music. Sparked by the guitar gusto of Bill “Monster” Jones, the Kilowatts’ sound is both firmly rooted in the blues and delivered with a modern-day urgency. This is far from Murray’s first time at the rodeo. She has helped keep a spotlight on the Texas capital’s music scene and cut her teeth during the golden era of Austin’s blues and R&B scene in the 1980s and early 90s. Kathy Murray believes, not without justification, that even after a lifetime onstage and on record, the best days for Kathy & the Kilowatts are still to come.
