The Resemblance is the work of two young brothers, Paul Murray (16) and his younger brother Lee (14). Music is not just a passion for these two, it's a life style. "It's what we do" say's front man Paul Murray. From the moment they picked up a guitar they knew this is what they wanted to do with their lives. From instrumentals that race through your veins like you've just been shot up with adrenalin to the more blue/rock sound, The Resemblance have a sound all their own.
You cannot compare their sound or style to any other artist out there in modern rock and that is what makes these two brothers the future of music! The Resemblance is the future of music and should not be taken lightly because of their age. They will blow you away.
Lee Murray, born February 5th, 1997, is a guitarist in the band, “The Resemblance.”
He started to play at a very young age and continues to master the art of technicality of classical and the catchiness of blues. His main goal is to further music in a way that has been previously unheard of; he writes songs with stunning harmonies and intricate composition. Even with his unmatched intricacy, it is of utmost importance to him that he writes music that is accessible to every ear.
Lee, along with his brother Paul, is extremely inspired by the works of Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance of Avenged Sevenfold. Lee strives to further the works and harmonies of Sevenfold’s guitarist in an innovative way. He is also influenced by guitarist such as Eric Johnson, Paul Gilbert and Steve Vai.
Lee enjoys using the “Virgo” overdrive pedal and the “Aquarius”
fuzz pedal in bluesy songs. The Virgo handles pushed gain sounds and metal distortions very well, and one can hear it in almost every “Resemblance”
song. With his band,
Paul Murray, born July 24th 1994, has indulged in playing the guitar for about 5 or 6 years now. In collaboration with his brother Lee Murray, he is a guitarist in the band, “The Resemblance.”
Paul focuses on making the most technically proficient and advanced rock and roll to date. Although, this technicality is not to get in the way of the reason that music was made in the first place: to sound good to the ears of everybody who listens.
He is heavily influenced by blues/classic rock guitarists such as Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimmy Page, Robert Johnson, Jimi Hendrix etc and also masters of technicality such as Paul Gilbert, Joe Satriani and Eric Johnson. Most of all, he is influenced by Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance. The dual guitar solos and collaboration of Avenged Sevenfold’s guitarists have inspired the Murrays.
