"Feeler" is the second album by Australian singer-songwriter Pete Murray. Released on July 21, 2003, it went to number one on the Australian album charts on March 29, 2004 and to that date, achieved triple platinum status.

Making of the album

In 2002, Pete Murray made an independent album "The Game" which prompted Sony Music Australia to sign him. In early 2003, Pete Murray and his band entered the studio with producer Paul McErcher and his band to make the "Feeler" album. On his website, Pete Murray outlines the type of record he was hoping to make. "The records I love by people like Nick Drake, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, they are built to last. I wanted this to be an album like that, something you can pull out in 30 years and still hear the feeling in it, rather than something that’s dated by the musical fashions of the day."


"Feeler" was released on July 21, 2003 with the title track as the first single. Triple J radio started playing the track with the Nova FM and Triple M networks picking up the track. With this support, "Feeler" entered the ARIA top 50 album charts at position forty-three in 2003. His reputation was building fast and he started selling out shows in smaller venues.

The momentum of the album continued to build with the release of the second single "Lines" and two ARIA award nominations reaching platinum record status . Radio programmers had been asking for the track "So Beautiful" to be released as a single and the track was widely played on Australian radio, reaching the top ten in 2004. This spurred sales of the album driving it to number one on the Australian album charts in late March 2004 and triple platinum status.

Pete Murray commenced an Australian tour of larger venues in early 2004. Due to the level of demand, he had to announce nine extra dates. As well, he made one of his sellout performances at the Sydney Metro theatre on March 27, 2004 available for download at BigPond Music.
