Biography

Paul came from a musical background, his father a music teacher at times performing piano and vocal duets with his mother. At school Paul learnt trumpet and violin, performing in school and regional brass bands, orchestras and concert bands. Listening to British Progressive Rock inspired Paul to pick up guitar and keyboards playing along to choice picks from his LP collection including The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Elton John and U2. Other more local and recent influences have included Noiseworks, INXS, BT, The Corrs, Live and Eskimo Joe.

A keen interest in computers led Paul to investing in a home PC well before most other musicians were even aware of their musical potential. From here Paul went on to produce local Melbourne acts and bands including 'The Deep' and Graig Heath as well as playing bass in 'Power Supply'. But even with his strong technical inclinations, Paul was always at least as focused on the art of song and instrumental writing as he was on the production and technology. Some of his best instrumentals are presented here as potential backdrops for movies, games or other multimedia opportunities.

Lyrics

Alchemy Rock

Written By: Paul Murphy and Peter Manolidis

VERSE
I got a story to tell you before we go to bed
I know that you think that I have been reading your head
I've got a riff that'll drive you to think I'm going mad
So sit down and listen coz I know you are gonna be glad

CHORUS

GOTTA STOP THE CLOCK
ALCHEMY ROCK
GET LOUD WERE ROCKING IT
DUNNO HOW TO STOP
ALCHEMY ROCK
THAT'S WHAT WERE CALLING IT

I got a car that'll take you to where you wanna go
Downtown LA baby that's where they got a brand new show
Don't need an invite coz they all know that we are VIP
We got a sound when they hear it we will be celebrity
