Welcome to Murphy Music
Singer Songwriter Artist Manager Percussionist
Welcome, and thanks for taking the time to stop by.
This website is a way for me to put many of my hats in one place. From song publishing and score writing, to managing the careers of The Ennis Sisters and Shannon Quinn, to my own performances as a singer and percussionist, it's all here in one place.
The year 2016 inspired me to have this website created for all of you who attempt to keep track of where I am and what I’m doing. (Hi Mom & Dad!). In 2016, I was a featured vocalist with the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra, I toured Newfoundland and Labrador in June with amazing musicians performing the music of the group Chicago, toured the US From NJ to CA with The Ennis Sisters and Cherish The Ladies, played some wonderful shows (US and Canada) in the summer with The Ennis Sisters, signed an inspiring new client – Shannon Quinn – to manage, and placed a co-written song in a national television show. So many wonderful experiences that I'm truly grateful for.
I've been a performing musician since I was 13 years old. I stepped away from performing/touring when my son was born and went to university to get a couple of degrees in music. That education has been helpful in so many ways but recently the increased demand for Ennis Sisters’ sheet music has allowed me to revisit my charting skills. You'll find those scores (among other pieces) available for purchase in the Store. This will be an ongoing endeavour and the collection will grow as requests come in so sign up for updates to know when a song you want becomes available, if it isn't already.
I have a new CD featuring many covers of songs that people have been requesting of me. There are a couple of original songs, too, but I'll save most of the originals for my next CD.
Since I've played on – and had my songs recorded on – other musician's records for a few decades now, it’s fun to finally create this solo CD. It will be available on tour and from this website only.
