Murphey’s penchant for creating these warming, transportive atmospheres from track to track is evidently becoming a mark of his formidable, talented trade. With this, we are eager to see where his next journey will take us. - HIDDEN HERD.
Soul singer-songwriter and producer, Murphey blends warm vocals over jazz keys, shimmering electric guitar and soft trumpet melodies. Sitting comfortably upon laid back beats, Murphey immerses his audience in the snug atmosphere his music creates. Drawing on influences from Sampha, Jordan Rakei, Daniel Caesar and J Dilla, to D’angelo, Chet Baker, John Coltrane and Bill Evans.
Having written and recorded every part of his upcoming debut EP, Murphey cements his distinct sound, setting the tone early on. Centred around the concept of loving someone, the EP explores the subject and delves into areas often ignored - comfort, self-destruction and naivety.
'Camomile' is the first single from Murphey's upcoming EP. The song centres around the idea of falling in love with someone and finding that they begin to replace those vices and comforts we often are so quick reach for, whether its your morning coffee or that Camomile tea to calm you down.
