Murray Kinsley & Wicked Grin have a knack for garnering awards. The band received the 2014 Maple Blues Award for Best New Group, and Shame On Me was named Best Canadian Blues Rock Album of 2014 and 2015 by The Blues Underground Network. Bassist Leigh-Anne Stanton recently received the 2015 Maple Blues Award for Bassist of the Year.
Bringing road-proven (and often written) tracks to their latest album Stormy Water, there are sure to be plenty more kudos to follow.
I chatted at length with Murray about the new album, musical influences, and more.
