Hannah Wright & The Midnight Revelry is an original 5-piece band formed in Austin, TX by Hannah Wright (lead singer/ songwriter) and Carrie Comeaux (bass). The two discovered each other's musical talents while working together at Dell Children's Medical Center. The building of the band began in Spring 2021 and by Fall 2021, the band had its first show at Rustic Tap in downtown Austin, TX. Since then, the "Southern Rock Revival" sound has carried the band into the heart of the Texas music scene and beyond. With an upbeat setlist that ranges from 90s Country, 70s Southern Rock and Today's Americana to Hannah's original music, it's no wonder the crowd comes and never leaves. It might also have to do with the sick skills of the amazing band members below..
Charlie Murphy - LEAD GUITAR
Charlie started playing guitar at the age of five and played his first gig at age seven. By the age of 12 he was gigging professionally, playing acoustic guitar at the bars around the area where he grew up, in upstate New York. Around age 14-15 he began playing bass guitar in a jazz ensemble and by age 15-16 he was playing lead guitar in a country band. At age 20, he started playing pedal steel guitar in addition to lead guitar in various bands. Some of the bands he has played with in the upstate New York area include Country Cookin’, Murphy's Law, Saddle Boogie and Kentucky Thunder (until they had to change their name when Ricky Skaggs hit the scene with his band of the same title). Since moving to Austin in 2009, Charlie has had the opportunity to play with some great bands and artists, including Clint Martin, Red Dirt Rebellion, Next Exit and he even played pedal steel guitar with Wiretree for an Austin City Limits taping in 2010. In 2014 he started his own band, the Charlie Murphy Band, which is still actively gigging around Austin and Central Texas today.
