Murder Murder

Northern Ontario’s Murder Murder are a six-piece string band with suitcase percussion who create a unique blend of bluegrass and outlaw country. The band takes “rich down-home vocals and churns them with a brand of gothic that is as catchy as it is intriguing; audiences will be swept away by not only the band’s musical talent, but the web of tragedy and tension that the songs spin.”

Murder Murder was nominated for “Best Songwriter” in the 2015 Northern Ontario Film & Music Awards, “Best Songwriter” and “Best Music video” in the 2017 NOMFA’s, selected as a semi-finalist at Indie Week Canada 2015, and elected Regional Champion for Northern Ontario in the 2015 CBC Searchlight Competition. As well as making it to the final 23 bands out of more than 3300 entries in 2015’s Searchlight, Murder Murder was also selected as an “Audience Favourite”.
