"Showcase: Jeremy Murphy"

What: Folk, Pop
Where: Montreal, QC
A native of Newfoundland that is currently "wandering the world," Jeremy Murphy weaves intricate tales with his music. The gentle approach that Murphy takes to songwriting is arguably his best quality. Although he might not be reinventing the wheel with respect to the music he creates, there is an earnest honesty inherent in his songs, making them all the more endearing. Nowhere is this more evident than on the 11 confessional-style songs featured on his sophomore collection, Some Form Of Afterthought. Released this past May, the album finds Murphy backed by minimal instrumentation and proudly bearing the influence of songwriting greats like Bob Dylan and, in more contemporary terms, Canada's own Ron Sexsmith in his DNA. The long lost art of storytelling via music is something that Murphy may not singularly revive but there is little question that this musician knows his way around a song. - Canadian Musician Magazine
