"A towering talent, both in traditional music and as a singer-songwriter."

"Remarkable contemporary interpretation of folk song and deeply personal yet politicised art folk songwriting" UNCUT

Julie Murphy is a singer and songwriter, member of Welsh folk innovators fernhill and a powerful solo performer. She writes songs at home in the Welsh countryside, mainly on piano

Her remarkable voice, spectrally beautiful one moment and darkly rich the next, has led to collaborations with John Cale and Robert Plant and to TIME OUT declaring her a 'must see, must hear singer'.

She describes herself as an artist working through the medium of music whose art school background laid the foundation for her continuing musical explorations.

In 2016 she released her fourth solo album 'EVERY BIRD THAT FLIES' on her own 'Shells in the ocean' label, receiving support and airplay from across the BBC plus independents like Resonance and FRUK. The album was included in the MOJO Top ten folk albums of 2016 list and was a fROOTS magazine critics choice album.
