Bio

Uruguay is a transient electronic band created by Stepha Murphy and Benjamin Dawson-Sivalia. Their music features hauntingly beautiful vocal melodies atop driving and atmospheric production. The duo first began working together when they were asked to score a documentary, spawning what would be their first single, “Sabrina Segment”. When “Sabrina Segment” gained attention from various blogs and art studios in NYC, they decided to start a band.

Both Stepha and Benjamin have extensive, and largely self-taught, musical backgrounds. Stepha’s mother was a trained opera singer and began teaching her how to sing at an early age. She then began learning classical piano, by ear, at the age of 11 and continued playing for eight years.

The son of a violinmaker, Benjamin grew up playing drums, guitar and piano. He studied jazz saxophone in college, going abroad to London and Barcelona where he began to simultaneously delve into production and classical guitar.

Uruguay’s music is inspired by the duo’s diverse backgrounds and eccentric experiences since moving to New York City. Influences include everything from Radiohead to Flying Lotus, En Vogue, flamenco guitar and FKA Twigs.
