Nick Murphy


Melbourne-bred singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Nick Murphy burst out of the SoundCloud streaming world and onto the global stage with the release of his 2014 platinum selling debut LP ***Built on Glass***, released under the Chet Faker moniker. On the heels of that album’s success, he spent the next half decade on the road, traveling with a microphone in his suitcase, recording the first Nick Murphy album, 2019’s ***Run Fast Sleep Naked***, on the fly. Murphy followed that up in early 2020 with a surprise instrumental LP called ***Music for Silence***, an exploratory ten-track collection initially released exclusively via the Calm app. The record saw wider availability in early March 2020 via Murphy’s own Detail Records — an eerily prophetic release that foreshadowed the isolation wrought by the impending Covid-19 pandemic. In late 2020, Murphy revived the Chet Faker project with the single “Low” and released the highly anticipated second Chet Faker album, ***Hotel Surrender***, in 2021. That was followed by the first Nick Murphy & The Program LP, ***Take In The Roses***, produced by Dave Harrington of Darkside.
