Payne's Grey was established in 1992 and is based in Dallas, Texas. Murdock Scott writes the lyrics and sings, and Shawn O'Neill plays guitar and is a contributing lyricist. They share credit for all other instrumentation as well as composing and arranging the songs. Murdock and Shawn produce their music digitally using Apple Power Macintoshes.
Murdock, a talented graphic designer, created the art for Pull It Down with Shawn's help and some additional photographic assistance from Lori Nazareth.
Murdock has played in various other bands around the Dallas area for many years, some of which include 11-Eleven and Big Fear. Before that, you may have heard him singing at the 3-D Pub or Woody's Back Door in Wichita, Kansas, with the original incarnation of 11-Eleven, or at a musty-smelling keg party with his first band, the tragically inaudible King Crab and the Body Lice.
Shawn O'Neill has been playing guitar for 20 years, and his unusual musical abilities cover a broad range of styles that mesh perfectly with the musical philosophy of Payne's Grey. When asked about Shawn, Doc says "I've played with more guitarists than I care to remember, and Shawn is by far the most talented and least inebriated of them all!"
