Today, our new music spotlight is on Murphey.
Line-up: Solo Artist
About: 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. Murphey wrote and performed every part of his new single ‘Camomile.’
What Hidden Herd say: Hidden Herd-favourite Murphey returns with a soulful, tender opus. Like the tea that it’s oh-so aptly named after ‘Camomile’ lays an ethereal blanket over listeners, transporting the British public to warmer, more welcoming climes.
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.
