"..it is difficult to place Murphy in any particular niche. There are elements of pop, folk, classical and country music that he fuses together to varying degrees in his music. All of these influences are no doubt due to Murphy’s background as a producer and engineer, and result in an inimitable style all of his own." Goldenplec
