We’re very lucky to call Stefan Murphy one of our own. Based in Atlanta, GA, the Dublin artist’s mottled career to date has taken in the triumphant garage rock of The Mighty Stef, exploratory solo sounds as Count Vaseline and far beyond.

Murphy is now performing under his own name, making music that he tells us “aims to reconnect with the art of earnest, heartfelt songwriting, while also flirting with his back catalog in the live setting.” If lead single ‘Dry Cider’ is anything to go by, success is both realms is assured. A self-proclaimed tale of youthful misadventure, dedicated to his childhood pal, David Murphy, it’s a rousing conquest that casts its mind back in order to celebrate the magnitude of “the moment”.

Accompanied by a backing back, the Athletes of Soul, Murphy will play the following European shows across May and early June.
