„I love the precision and musicality of my Paiste Signature Cymbals and the darkness on the PSTX line. Together they are a lethal combination.“

Upon graduating Murray returned to Canada where he played and recorded with Fine Tooth Combine, Camille Miller, Triple Sow Cow, Honey Loaf, Thin King, Mike Demers, Vince Vaccaro and Justin Hewitt. In 2000 Murray opened Groove Studios which quickly became Victoria’s biggest drum lesson studio.
