“The Left Ready EP is a hard-hitting, five-track knockout punch. The rough and raw music style is reminiscent of classic rock bands with a modern edge. Think: A combination of the Black Keys and Fun, with rhythms and riffs that make you want to move. Murray’s vocals take this project over the top. These guys may be from a small town, but they are the next big thing!” – By Stefanie Johnson “The Left Ready Comes Out Swinging” The Daily Interlake 09/11/2014

“Their sound is immediate with no pretension and highlighted by punchy guitars and then punctuated with energetic drumming.The band creates sounds similar to Muse, The Black Keys and The White Stripes. Murray hits high notes similar to those of Adam Levine in Maroon 5 and often has the tenacity of Jack White.” – Courtney Haas – The Equal Ground – 3/11/2015

“The rockers from The Left Ready are surely on the rise.  LOVED the EP from start to finish and was even more impressed during their live show in Colorado Springs.  Looking forward to hearing more from you guys; hopefully soon.”  James Rush – Top Jimmy’s New Music Tuesday, 97.7 KAFA

 “Unadulterated rock and roll sung with passion by Mike Murray…one of Montana’s best.” – Brew Michaels – 103.1 The River

 “A nice blend of The Black Keys and Jack White. The Left Ready brings guitars back into the mix.” – Aaron Zytle – 103.9 RXP

“It’s obvious Murray thrives with an electric guitar in his hands. His stage presence draws in the audience as he loses himself in deep solos on top of a driving beat.” – By Matt Baldwin “Working Man” The Whitefish Pilot 11/2013

The Left Ready

Comprised of Mike Murray (vocals/guitar), Joel Metzler (drums), and Chris Krager (bass guitar), The Left Ready is an American rock band. The three began playing, writing, and touring together as the Mike Murray Trio in mid 2013, and soon found a chemistry on stage and in the studio. Deciding that chemistry was worth more than the context of a singer/songwriter and a varying team of contract players, they decided to formalize and found The Left Ready in June 2014.

They immediately brought on LA-based producer, Andy Prickett (One Republic – Waking Up, 2009) and hit the studio, working on their self-titled, debut EP. The Left Ready – EP released August 22.

Shortly following the release of the EP, the band signed with Minneapolis-based PR Firm, Tinderbox Music. Tinderbox launched a successful college radio campaign across the United States and Canada where the EP received spins on hundreds of stations, charted on over a dozen stations, and sat as number 1 on Dragon Radio’s (Minnesota State Univ.) chart for several weeks. Tinderbox also secured several major TV Network Synch. Licenses for The Left Ready – EP including, The Discovery Channel, MTV, Fox Sports, NASCAR, E!, and more.

After 3 performances in Austin, TX at SXSW 2015, the band worked again with producer, Andy Prickett, to record their second studio EP entitled, “Ghost”. The EP is set to release May 12, 2015 and will again be promoted by Tinderbox Music.
