The latest signing to popboomerang records is Chris Murphy, guitarist/singer/songwriter from popular perth band murphy's lore. After 10 years and 3 successful albums, chris has taken a side-step from the band with his new self penned debut solo record, 'elbow room'. Murphy's lore's 3 albums are loaded with Chris Murphy compositions and have allowed the band to gain a solid following not only within Australia, but also in the underground pop scenes in USA, UK & Japan. Chris Murphy has a wide & impressive vocal range. This is illustrated on 'come and get me', a rocker in the vein of the faces or 70's era rolling stones. He then gently croons his way through 30's swing/jazz pastiche 'good deeds'. Chris even echo's the late great jellyfish on the bouncy 'electric chair'. Chris Murphy was musically inspired by crowded house's self titled debut. With the release of 'elbow room', chris has fully completed his own journey to pen his own classic pop album.
