In 2014, Lee Murdock formed a new band, with a sound unlike anything he’s offered in the past. It all started with Joel Simpson, a friend who has been a Lee Murdock fan since the age of seven, or younger. Joel is a graduate of Elmhurst College School of Music, and is a multi-instrumentalist, playing dobro, mandolin, guitar, and other stringed instruments. They came to know each other better while working each was teaching private lessons at Tobias Music Store in Downers Grove.

Bassist Mike Bradburn has toured the USA and Europe with the popular Chicago-based band, Dolly Varden. Percussionist Greg Smith soon joined the band, and the foursome has formed the backbone of Murdock’s nineteenth CD, “What About The Water,” released in September, 2014. Greg had a long and busy career working with another popular Chicago and touring band, The Dooleys.
