Philadelphia native, Phil Murphy is a singer-songwriter that fuses a multitude of genres to form his melodic rock sound. His brand of rock/pop mixed with hints of americana and folk create a truly cross generational listening experience. Influenced by Lifehouse, the Goo Goo Dolls, Matchbox 20, and Ryan Adams, Phil believes music should be about melody as a form of emotional and artistic expression.

 

As the lead singer and rhythm guitarist for his former band, Outset, Phil was voted Best Frontman of a local act by 93.7 WSTW. Together Outset recorded two full length albums, opened for a number of national acts, and maintained consistent radio play in the Tri State area. After the band split in 2008, Phil traveled to Nashville, TN and produced two albums, an EP and his full length debut “Upside Down World.  In 2014 he reunited with Outset producer Brett Talley to release "Full Circle", his first original album in five years.
