Stories From Snake Hill


Chasing Ghosts


Under The Lights


"On Dave Murphy's American Landscape...
The ghost of Old No 1 era Guy Clark looms large...
I would heartily recommend that you explore the scenery and share in his triumph."

Mike Davies, Folk Radio UK 


"Murphy is a natural storyteller who uses both image-rich lyrics and compelling melodies to illustrate his tale... Murphy's music -- at once thought provoking and an easy listen -- graciously rides the fine folk/Americana line."

Terri Lagerstedt, Fairfield County Weekly



"A musical Raymond Carver, Murphy taps the raw nerve so many struggling songwriters can't seem to find..."

Chris Smith, TUNES Twin City Revue


"The songs are a masterful blend of Country, Americana and Folk-Rock... a wonderful triumph of the human spirit in song."

Rick Rock, Tribes Hill News


“Beautifully delicate, lyrically powerful, skillfully produced; and an absolute pleasure to listen to…”

Cam Bull, Host – Audiojunkies: The 60 Minute Podcast


“Murphy sings in a gentle, unaffected baritone that suits his musings perfectly...Under the Lights will be illuminating, indeed.”
