15 Years of Muruch!

Muruch is now a surly teenager. While the original site was created in 1999, it was in July, 2000 that I began posting “Muruch mp3s” to share new music with friends. If you’re interested in the site’s convoluted history, you can read the saga on the About page. We have a lot of things planned to celebrate Muruch‘s 15th anniversary – starting with today’s official launch of the Muruch.com for RAINN fundraising campaign and benefit album. And, of course, Muruch wouldn’t be Muruch without plenty of Allison Crowe…



Anielle Reid: “Morality” Video Premiere!

We first introduced you to indie folk singer-banjoist Anielle Reid back in February as part of Muruch’s Surfacing series. Anielle has since then released her debut EP and we’re happy to premiere the video for the track “Morality” here on Muruch. Anielle has also contributed a beautiful, poignant song to Muruch.com’s for RAINN benefit album and fundraising campaign, which will officially launch this Wednesday, July 1st.
