Just at a time when you forgot such elegance in songwriting existed along comes Robb Murphy and his album ‘Take a Stand’.
This Irish Singer/Songwriter has such effortless, subtle humbleness in his voice that it captivates you from the outset.
The first single, On My Side’, taken from the album is a beauty of a track and you can imagine it being written in any era and still sounding timeless. The softly finger picked guitar complimenting the brass section so brilliantly and all fantastically brought together by the warmness that is Robb’s distinctly accented voice.
To be mentioned in the same breath as Damien Rice is a compliment to Robb and his songwriting but , from the evidence given in this debut album, is a deserved one so far……
Robb’s first single ‘On My Side’ is out now with the album ‘Take a Stand’ to follow on April 27th.
