Hi there, my name is Murphy and I'm a full time professional singer/acoustic guitarist.

I have a vast repertoire that stretches from 60's till today's charts and have been performing on a full-time, professional basis for the past 15 years since the age of 17.

I have a summer residency every year at Windsor Racecourse as well as being the resident musician for the Ministry of Defence at Victoria (Windsor Castle), Wellington (Buckingham Palace) & Aldershot Barracks.

I am a regular featured artist at both Westfield London & Westfield Stratford Shopping Centres. As well as performing at restaurants for the likes of Antony Worrall Thompson & Jamie Oliver, I have also played parties for Fearne Cotton & Jo Whiley.

In 2014 I was asked to play as the main act at the Tour de France for the after event entertainment in Yorkshire to 16,000 people and in 2015 was given an Endorsement by Cole Clark Guitars who are also represented by Snow Patrol, Jack Johnson & Ben Howard to name a few and was also asked to represent London Live Music in The Dot London Awards (headed by Sarah Willingham of Dragons Den).

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch by replying to this message or by using the contact details below.

I look forward to hearing from you either way.

Best Regards

"Murphy James was brilliant! He played almost non stop from the moment he arrived. He was prompt and set up very quickly and had really good PA which makes a big difference. Everyone enjoyed the choice of music he played and he took requests too. If you're looking for a rocking good time we'd definitely recommend Murphy he was really good."
