Billy Murray – Colorado Music Hall of Fame Inductee

Billy Murray was one of the most prolific recording artists of all time, charting over 250 times and achieving over two dozen number one hits.  He was born in Philadelphia in 1877 and moved to Denver in 1882 as a young boy and spent his growing up years in the Mile High City.  Not much has been published regarding his years as a youth.

Many of Murray’s recordings were performed in a comedic vein and he gained a reputation as being an artist of the humor genre.  His earliest recordings were on cylinders.  Beyond his charting catalog, Murray recorded hundreds of songs on an unbelievable number of record labels, many shown here.

Murray was also a member of the American Quartet a very popular group in parallel with his solo career.  Hopefully the Colorado Music Hall of Fame will change that when they induct Murray into the Hall in the Spring of 2016.

There is an incredible official Billy Murray web site titled “The Legendary Denver Nightengale” created by collector Ryan Barna in 2007 – Very much worth a look.
