Tina Pumfrey 2018 CD – That Day

December 19, 2018

Artist: Tina Pumfrey
Release: That Day
Date: 2018
Home: Thamesville, Ontario, Canada (Chatham-Kent)
Genre: Contemporary Christian Singer/ Songwriter

Notes:
Take a familiar, everyday situation. Spin a few lyrics and chords, sprinkle with a dash of rock, blues, country; maybe some folk or gospel. It was a bit more complicated than that, but essentially, that’s it! My music looks at everyday life through the lens of faith. Whatever life throws at me, faith holds me together, and music is the constant in the background.

Since 2011, I’ve been performing around southern Ontario, solo and with my band. In 2014, we recorded “Where God Is” at Northwood Studios, with producer/engineer Matt Connell at the controls. We have just finished our second album, “That Day”, a 5-song EP. It was a great experience, working at SLR Studios in Windsor, under the guidance of Marty Bak. The final product was mastered by Greg Mindorff of Suite Sound Labs in Vancouver. It will be released on June 16, 2018.

Outdoor gospel nights, church events, festival stages, house concerts,… We are ready to bring the music to you, wherever you need it!

Tracks:
01. That Day
02. Sweet As Can Be
03. Home
04. Slow
05. New Song

Name: Ralph James Murphy
Year: 2012
Raised: Wallaceburg Ontario
Born: Saffron Walden, England, 1944.
Resides: Nashville
Position: performer, producer, songwriter, publisher, and most recently, Vice President, International and Domestic Membership, ASCAP.

Ralph Murphy inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame.

Canadian songwriter/producer/author Ralph Murphy is a lifetime achiever in the Music Business. Leaving Canada for Liverpool in 1965 led to his first #1 production/writing credit, “Call My Name” by James Royal in 1966. His early successes in Europe set the stage for his return to Toronto to produce platinum albums for April Wine (You Could Have Been A Lady) and in 1971 to have his first huge Country hit by Jeannie C. Riley (Good Enough To Be Your Wife). While in Nashville in 1972 to collect his first (of many) ASCAP Country Awards he felt excited by the creative environment and moved there to start a Publishing/production company with his pal Roger Cook. His songs have been recorded and released by dozens of artists like Randy Travis, Shania Twain, Ray Price, Crystal Gayle, Ronnie Milsap, Kathy Mattea, Micky Gilley and so many more. Having had chart success as a writer in every decade since the sixties puts him in a rare club. His newly released Murphy’s Laws of Songwriting, “The Book” has become a best seller with professional songwriters, universities and songwriter organizations worldwide. He is also the only Canadian to have been President of the Nashville Songwriters Association (NSAI), President of the Nashville Chapter of the Recording Academy (NARAS) and a National Trustee of NARAS. He has served on the Canadian Country Music Association Board, as well as the Songwriters Guild of America regional advisory board and the Southern Regional Writers Advisory board of ASCAP. Most recently he was presented the Jo Walker-Meador International Achievement Award by the Country Music Association (CMA) for services to Country Music worldwide. He is an active member of the CCMA, CMA, NARAS, Songwriters Association of Canada, SGA and ASCAP. – Caanadian Country Music Association.
