Hi there, my name is Murphy and I'm a full time professional Singer/Acoustic Guitarist.
I performed as resident musician for Royal Windsor Racecourse from 2011-2016 and continue to be resident for the Ministry of Defence at Victoria (Windsor Castle), Wellington (Buckingham Palace) & Aldershot Barracks.
In 2014 I was asked to play as the main act at the Tour de France for the after event entertainment in Yorkshire to 16,000 people and in 2015 was given an Endorsement by Cole Clark Guitars who are also represented by Snow Patrol, Jack Johnson & Ben Howard to name a few and was also asked to represent London Live Music in The Dot London Awards (headed by Sarah Willingham of Dragons Den).
Most recently I was awarded the "Best Act of 2016" by a notable Live Music Agency and will be performing at Knebworth House later this year as a resident Act for the Great British Food Festival.
I have a vast repertoire of 2000+ covers that stretch from 60's till today's charts and have been performing on a full-time, professional basis for the past 15 years since the age of 17.
I have a repertoire of over 2000 songs but here is just a small sample list of the most popular requests that I cover.
