Biography

OFFICIAL SXSW 2013 PERFORMER WITH PRETTY LITTLE DEMONS

After her first drum lesson at six, Marlhy was playing a full AC/DC song and was exposed to her first Led Zeppelin song, Misty Mountain Hop, which would bury in her a deep love for classic rock. At the age of 7, she was playing to tens of thousands of people at a national hockey game with the advanced band at School of Rock and continued to take multiple lessons a week as well as practicing everyday to refine her skill. She also added bass guitar, keyboards, guitar and lead vocals to repertoire.

Now at the age of 11, Marlhy is a tiny pro. She has played with Todd Lewis of the Toadies, and currently has three bands. Pretty Little Demons, a two piece band playing mostly originals out of Santa Monica, CA. Both girls play all instruments and are set to release their first EP in February 2013. A Led Zeppelin cover band called the Zeppos in which Marlhy plays drums and sings lead. Zeppos have also started to venture into original material soon to debut. Rosalynd (formerly We're Not Dudes) is Marlhy's four-piece, all girl band that has opened for Polyphonic Spree, Sarah Jaffe and Daniel Hart.

Marlhy has been featured in Tom Tom Magazine and many news stories.

Marlhy is also a working actress, represented by an agent in Los Angeles. She splits her year in Dallas and Los Angeles. Her commercial work includes being a featured drummer in a national Target commercial. She is also a regular cast member of the AOL/Emmy award winning Kid's React YouTube series by The Fine Brothers.


Lyrics

Before

Written By: Marlhy Murphy

Lights streaking by
Red, yellow and white
Flashing white lines
People trying to get home
Twists and turns
Cars pass in a dizzy blur
I’m heading home, feeling alone

What’s there when they stop now
Chasing lights in the darkness
Watch the cars pass, look inside
Windows of lost faces
Looking at bright blue signs I
Feel like I’ve passed this place before
And I still got nothing
I still nothing to show for it

Sitting on the highway
Waiting for people to move on
Red lights staring
Feel like I’ve been stuck here forever
Same stale air and the same old dull rotation
Oh, oh, oh

What’s there when they stop now
Chasing lights in the darkness
Watch the cars pass, look inside
Windows of lost faces
Looking at bright blue signs I
Feel like I’ve passed this place before
And I still got nothing
I still got nothing

I feel the pressure of eyes on me
I force myself to look away
Cars start moving but I don’t go far
A sense of relief in my false privacy

What’s there when they stop now
Chasing lights in the darkness
Watch the cars pass, look inside
Windows of lost faces
Looking at bright blue signs I
Feel like I’ve passed this place before
And I still got nothing
I still got nothing

What’s there when I stop now
Chasing lights in the darkness
Watch the cars pass, look inside
Windows of lost faces
Looking for exit signs I
Feel like I’ve passed this place before
And I still got nothing
I still got nothing to show for it

Mean Girls

Written By: Marlhy Murphy

Last one to be chosen again
Feel dead eyes pass over me
I know I’m not the newest to the group
I glance over at the girl next to me
But not for long because
She’s chosen
For
The
TEAM

Last one to be chosen again
Feel dead eyes pass over me
I know I’m not the newest here
I glance at the girl next to me

Did I wear the wrong thing
That feeling again of standing alone
Did I say what shouldn’t be said
Did I not get the right phone

The gulf around me is getting wide
I’m far from everyone else
I float further out
But you don’t know me
An embarrassed feeling washes
Over me like another tide
I think I’m drowning
I think I’m drowning

Guitar solo

Avoiding the eyes of others near
I try to act like I don’t care
How does it feel to not be last
Stare at my shoes with a distant air

The gulf around me is getting wide
I’m far from everyone else
I float further out
But you don’t know me
An embarrassed feeling washes
Over me like another tide
I think I’m drowning
I think I’m drowning
