BAND BIOGRAPHY Lilia, Eugene and Yingtze started Morphy in 2001 in a tiny jamming studio in Singapore with a small collection of songs about observations in life. Over time, the number of songs grew steadily and Morphy began recording in 2002 with the help of Rick Smith and John Chan from Chromazone Studios. Drawing on a diverse range of musical influences, the band developed their songs over two years culminating in their 13-track debut album titled Pink Ashes. All three agree that making music is one of the best things in life.
