Hailing from Northern NSW in Australia, Cheynne is a folk rocking, singer-songwriter. A romantic at heart, a keen surfer and family man, his music draws inspiration from nature, shamanic spirituality and love.
A musical journey inspired by the idea of sitting around campfires, singing songs with nothing but acoustic guitars, a few friends, and the crackle of a fire sounds like it could be good for the soul. Cheynne took this inspiration and debuted his first EP titled "Firesongs for the Soul" at Byron Bay’s Bluefest in the company of giants such as Ben Harper, Michael Franti and The Blind Boys of Alabamma. Cheynne’s debut album ‘A Horse Called Freedom’ produced with Paul Pilsneniks (Angus Stone & Julia Stone) was released with critical acclaim earning a songwriter of the year nomination. His music has been described by Country update magazine as 'ambling and cinematic’; Rhythms magazine called it 'earnest sprawling folk rock’; and The Courier Mail commented on the ‘sighing harmonies and evocative guitar’. A journey man and wayfarer, Cheynne has just returned from two international tours to heartland China as a special guest at an International music festival. His new EP ‘Headlights and Goodbyes’, released late 2018, features the guitar work of Jeff Martin (from The Tea Party) who heard his music being mixed and offered to ‘add some parts’. Cheynne is currently touring the EP on the East coast of Australia. Checkout www.cheynnemurphy.com for the latest news.
