About the Artist
Mike Murphy, a native of Canton, Ohio, began singing at a young age in his father’s inner city church. His extensive background in gospel music allowed him to explore his soulful side, contributing to his smooth R&B style and heartfelt lyrics. Throughout his youth, he received notoriety by participating in local talent shows, demonstrating not only his vocal abilities but also his charismatic stage presence.
While serving in the United States Armed Forces, Murphy was selected by Army Entertainment to participate in the 2000 U.S. Army Show. He was provided with the opportunity to travel the world entertaining our troops as an R&B vocalist.
After receiving an honorable discharge from the military, he decided to take a chance at stardom by moving to New York. The first year, although financially draining, gave him the opportunity to showcase his talent in many of the popular night clubs in New York. He was also afforded the opportunity to work with producer Hamza Lee and collaborated extensively with Jase, lead singer for the group Soul for Real.
Murphy’s experience in New York drastically increased his knowledge of music and production, but it also gave him a glimpse into the harsh realities of the music industry. Fortunately, his trials and tribulations have only strengthened his faith in God and his motivation to continue to pursue his career in music.
Mike Murphy’s forthcoming album entitled “Love” is scheduled to release on Valentine’s Day 2010. His album is a bold collection of songs that communicates the joy and complexity of love and relationships. His first single “Hopeless” is an expression of honest emotion and personal vulnerability. Although the album is laced with everything from ballads to club tracks, Murphy’s smooth, hypnotic vocals permeate throughout.
