ROBB MURPHY announces brand new studio album ‘Sleep tonight’
‘Starting as a piece of gentle acoustic pop, with hints of Jose Gonzalez and Damien Rice before cascading into synth-laden electro is no easy task’ BBC 6 Music
Robb Murphy brings his devilishly sexy signature style to the forefront with his soon to be released 2nd studio album, Sleep Tonight. Robb Murphy’s inimitable style derives from his background as a producer/engineer. Retaining all the hallmarks that separates him from his contemporaries in the singer-songwriter world – he has the creativity, the passion, the raw emotion and the haunting beauty that great singer songwriters are made of.
He has the unique ability to transport his listener into his musical world with a combination of stunning acoustics, sublime vocals and heartfelt lyrics. The rhythmic undercurrent of his music entices his audience to join him on a journey of traditional Irish storytelling punctuated throughout with elements of pop, country, classical and folk.
The new album, Sleep Tonight, consists of twelve original songs from Robb, each bearing testament to the organic ‘real’ sound created in Italy two years previous. The music and lyrics of Sleep Tonight illustrate personal memories along with the varied stories of Robb’s native Northern Ireland; making the album a tapestry of music in the grand Irish storytelling tradition. Sleep Tonight’s infectious lead single Mysteries Of The Heart evokes an upbeat Motown pop sound with a Nashville twist.
