NEW TO MURRAY HEAD?
Murray Head was born on the 5th of March 1946 in London. His father, Seafield Head, now retired, was a documentary film writer, director and producer, his mother, Helen Shingler, was a successful actress. He was sent to the Lycée français in London at the age of 4 and remained there till he was 10 years old.
After signing his first record deal at 17 with EMI, Murray began his film carreer in 1965 in Roy Boulting's "The Family Way" playing the role of Hywell Bennettís brother. The film also starred Hayley Mills. After a film with Brigitte Bardot and "Romeo & Juliette" in 1968, he was in "Hair" at the same time as recording the role of Judas in "Jesus Christ Superstar". He left Hair to film John Schlesingerís "Sunday Bloody Sunday" with Peter Finch and Glenda Jackson.
In 1972 he was signed by John Hammond Snr to CBS records and made his first solo album entitled "Nigel Lived" which at the time was called a concept album. Immediately after its release he went to France to be filmed in Edouard Molinaro's "La Mandarine" with Annie Girardot and Philippe Noiret.
