Chris Murray (b. September 26, 1966) is a Canadian-born singer-songwriter and guitarist working primarily in the genre of ska. In Canada, he was a member of the now-defunct ska band King Apparatus during the late 1980s and early 1990s. He now lives in the Los Angeles, California area, where he performs regularly, both solo as well as with the Chris Murray Combo.
backed by The Slackers, they are one of the more well-known bands emerging from the New York City ska scene, having been formed in Brooklyn in 1991. The band’s sound is a mix of ska, rocksteady, reggae, dub, soul, swing, garage rock, and jazz. The Slackers’ notability is credited to their prolific career, tours of North America, Europe, and elsewhere, and signing to notable punk label Hellcat Records.
