MATT HURRAY, one of two founding members and bassist for the ever popular super group JUST PLAIN BIG has released his first ever solo project of instrumental surf tunes. After years of on again / off again ventures with Just Plain Big, which included two semi-national tours, three full length albums, music videos and numerous shows with bands such as THE HOODOO GURUS, THE ENGLISH BEAT and THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS to name a few, the group slowed to a virtual standstill and the members moved on in various musical directions. 

This new album "Egyptian Surfer" was written, performed, and recorded over the spring and summer of 2011 by Matt Hurray who plays Guitar, Bass, various percussion instruments and Vocals. Southern California music legends Jim Rice (Additional Guitars, Bass, and Harmonies), Gary Ferguson (Drums), Danny Timms and Eric Vinje (Keyboards) also perform on the album.  "Egyptian Surfer" takes the listener on a musical adventure with upbeat grinding surf guitar tunes as well as a few mellow acoustic and electric numbers to create a body of work that is a joy to listen to over and over again.

The first review of the album from David James of Outsider Records confirms that Hurray has "achieved something extraordinary - a batch of songs that makes your heart sing, your psyche smile and your liver fear the incoming wave of celebratory alcohol...A++!"

ENJOY!
