Hawaiian-born, LA-based Sean Murphy is ready to unleash his first
album “One Life” in August 28, 2009. Already, Sean's MySpace page has 4 million hits to date, and respected artists like Bryan Adams are tuning into Sean’s music, offering his praises.

Sean has a large following, and is already gaining high visibility in Japan (he is Top 5 in the charts), Canada, the Netherlands and Australia.

In addition, Sean Murphy has already received attention from well
known music producer David Foster. Sean is one of the hottest
musicians to hit the music business today, and people are quickly
taking note. “During the years I have seen a great number of
incredible talents and worked with a lot of superb artists,” says
Foster, “but rarely will you find such raw talent and passion in
someone that seems to elevate music to a higher standard.” From there it did not take long for Mike Jean and Salvatore Albert Bazile of Moonlight Entertainment Records to sign Sean to his first record deal.

While Sean’s style has been influenced by artists such as Dave
Matthews, Jack Johnson and Bob Dylan, Sean is in a league all his own. Sean Murphy is sure to strike a chord with fans of Pop, Country and Rock.

Bio

Sean Murphy's laid back yet powerful voice no doubt has its beginnings from his roots in Lanikai, on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. While Sean’s style has been influenced by artists such as Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson and Bob Dylan, Sean Murphy is in a league all his own in today’s cookie-cutter, lip-syncing industry. Sean’s raw and sincere lyrics captivate a broad audience, and are already gaining high visibility in Japan (he is Top 5 in the charts), Canada, the Netherlands and Australia.

Sean’s passion for music began at an early age, always keen to take advantage of any performance opportunities that came his way. When he was only eight years old, Sean began guitar lessons and before long was performing with local bands, eventually choosing a solo path. . His songs deal with such relevant issues as emotions, relations, children, poverty, and the environment. His visions are well spoken through his melodious, meaningful sounds and lyrics.

Eventually Sean’s love of singing and songwriting lead him to an interest in playing a number of instruments including guitar, drums, piano, and sitar (a plucked stringed instrument mainly used in Hindustani classical music). His newest single, “Lonely Soldier” is out and the sound is awesome, soft, yet deep in lyrics and texture. Another single, “Us”, is of his most current CD, “One Life”. This song was written after he had his first serious breakup with a girl. This tune truly speaks from the heart and honestly expresses what he felt at that time. His emotions and life experiences carries him through the creative process in hopes that others who hear can identify with his messages. Sean had an impressive ability to write lyrics that were fueled by emotion, and could easily articulate his message through his music.

What sets Sean apart from his present-day fellow artists is his dedication to reach people on a personal level through his commitment to work for global issues.
Sean also uses his music to support charitable causes he is passionate about. In 2005 Sean was asked to perform live for the Hawaii Hurricane Katrina benefit concert, alongside legendary Grammy Nominated performer and mentor Henry Kapono. The touching performance was a huge hit with broadcast and live audiences. . His songs deal with such relevant issues as emotions, relations, children, poverty, and the environment. His visions are well spoken through his melodious, meaningful sounds and lyrics. His song, A New Day, encourages listeners to aspire to make a new beginning for the greater good of humanity.

Sean is working on a debut full-length album, titled One Life, scheduled for release in 2009.
Sean has no shortage of inspiration. Here are just a few examples:

Fly Away - "I woke up in the middle of the night with Fly Away in my head and I wrote down a few lines. Have you ever loved someone so much, yet it hurt to be around them?"

Lonely Soldier - "Fall Out is a very meaningful song for me. I just wrote the words I felt at the time, and this song was the result of a touching song for many people."

One Life - "Sitting on my beach in Hawaii when I was 16, made me think about how short life is, and how we spend so much time on things other than life and love, and what waste that is. The message is; we need to enjoy each day to its fullest."

Same Damn Thing - "I was watching a show on MTV one night, and it involved a girl who was a dancer at a club. She was looking for a way to make a better life for herself. I could sense the sadness in her voice, and that's what inspired me to write this song."

This talented new artist does not have to explain his music to his fans, because they get it! Sean has a long and successful career ahead of him, and is bound to become a household name. Sean’s music, lyrics, and humanitarian work show him to be a unique and amazing performer. . Sean Murphy rocks, quite literally
