"Larissia Murphy Shines on a Gentle Country Tune from Her Debut EP"

Good things take time. Case in point, despite living in Nashville for a decade, country songstress Larissia Murphy is just now getting set to release her first EP. But she’s quickly making up for lost time by assembling a dream team of collaborators, including 5-time Grammy award winning producer Ray Kennedy, who worked with Emmylou Harris and Patty Griffin, executive producer Fiona Prine and a who’s who of Nashville session players.

The album’s title, Speak Your Mind, is a motto for an artist who is finally coming into her own and discovering her place in country music. Hailing from East Kentucky, the singer has said, “For a long time I didn’t really feel like there was a place for me in country music. I felt disconnected from what I was hearing on the radio. I never really felt encouraged to be myself or put out the kind of music that I loved.” It’s this disconnectedness and desire to speak from a fresh perspective, as well as the passion with which Murphy has approached this long-time-coming debut that gives her music such a distinctive feel.

“Late One Night” the first single from her album, highlights the artist’s push and pull between the traditional and the contemporary, with introspective lyricism and a vibe that could only emanate from an old-soul, yet still feels like a perfect fit in today’s songbook. The track is a simple and gentle song of love and yearning, rooted by Murphy’s earthy, deep vocals and lovely but understated instrumentation.

Speak Your Mind is set for a November 20th release. Give “Late One Night” a listen below. - Elmore Magazine

In Their Words: "When I first approached Jim Shea about making the video for 'Late One Night,' I knew that he was my guy. I just didn't know if he, being such a seasoned pro, would want to work with an up-and-coming artist such as myself. I was over the moon when he got back with me saying that he loved the song and wanted to be a part of our project. He believed that we could create something really unique and beautiful, and I feel that we did just that. The single has such a timeless quality, and we wanted to create something that really complemented the song in a cinematic fashion. A lot of the inspiration for the video stems from my love for classic cinema and film noir.” -- Larissia Murphy - The Bluegrass Situation

Bio

With a voice that evokes the haunting lonesomeness of the Kentucky hills and the breeziness of her Laurel Canyon dreams, it is impossible not to feel her honesty and heart in every word. Her voice is powerful and expansive, fragile and clear. 

The raven-haired singer/ songwriter’s live performance is also a captivating one-of-a-kind. Mysterious and dynamic. At one moment she is beautifully austere, then suddenly magnetic and vivacious; inviting all who listen to come live in the song with her. 

A good song can inspire you to dream bigger and live fuller. By distilling personal experiences and tribulations into her words and music, she delivers honest and thought-provoking messages. Larissia Murphy reminds us that life promises us hardships and heartache, but love can still be found in all of the broken places.

...And when she sings it, you know she’s lived it.
