Boy Cried Wolf
From: Brighton and London
Former frontman with Thirteen:13, Wayne Murray found himself in the wilderness when the band was dropped by label BMG Records.
But it led to a dream job playing guitar with hero James Dean Bradfield, frontman of Manic Street Preachers, on his solo tour, before taking on the role with the main band itself for their XFM Winter Wonderland show.
While playing with the Manics the songs which became Murray's own project Boy Cried Wolf came together over six months in 2009, and were collated on his new EP The Firebrand.
As well as Murray's own compositions the four-track EP includes No Comfort From Your Skin, with lyrics penned by the Manics' Nicky Wire, and backing vocals from Bradfield.
Over the last 18 months Boy Cried Wolf has been playing London's toilet circuit, and earlier this year played a series of national shows including a support slot with fellow Brighton outfit British Sea Power in Cardiff.
