Singer/songwriter Chris Murphy is based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, UK. His current album is called 'Arcana Valley', and is concerned with topics such as displacement, the sea and midnight explorations of forests.
Musically, he is variously comparable to the likes of Bert Jansch, Nick Drake and Richard Thompson. The songs are primarily acoustic fingerstyle at their core, with the additional sweeping sound of semi-acoustic guitars, string arrangements and vocal harmonies. The current project is a solo effort, with guest lead/backing vocalists. Press has called him "a maker of epic songs and muscular ballads" (Sheffield Star) and "ridiculously accomplished" (Exposed Magazine).
