Artist Biography
Available in: gb icon flag icon
Róisín Murphy is an Irish singer-songwriter and record producer known for her eclectic music style and her distinctive, husky voice. She was born on July 5, 1973, in Arklow, County Wicklow, Ireland, and was raised in Manchester, England.

Róisín Murphy first gained international fame in the 1990s as one half of the UK-Irish trip hop duo Moloko with her then-partner Mark Brydon. The duo was known for their innovative sound that blended electronic music with elements of trip-hop, dance, and funk. Their biggest hit, "Sing It Back," reached international acclaim and has since been covered and remixed by many artists.

Following Moloko's amicable split in 2003, Murphy embarked on a solo career, establishing herself as a critically acclaimed solo artist. Her debut album, "Ruby Blue," was released in 2005 to positive reviews. The album's genre-blending style, mixing pop, electronic, and jazz elements, signaled the versatile and experimental path that Murphy's music would take in her solo career.

Her second album, "Overpowered" (2007), marked a shift towards a more dance-oriented sound. Despite its commercial underperformance, the album was lauded by critics for its fusion of pop, disco, and house music, and Murphy's songwriting prowess.

Known for her unique visual style, Murphy directed and produced the music videos for the album's singles, cementing her status as a multi-talented artist. The album's title track and "Let Me Know" became popular dance hits.

Murphy's subsequent albums, including "Hairless Toys" (2015) and "Take Her Up to Monto" (2016), continued to push boundaries, blending elements of disco, electronic, pop, and avant-garde music. Her distinct style and diverse range have solidified her reputation as a fearless and creative artist.

Her fifth studio album, "Róisín Machine" (2020), is arguably her most dance-centric work to date. The album is a masterful blend of electronic, house, and disco that received widespread critical acclaim, further cementing Murphy's status as a unique and trailblazing figure in the electronic music world.

Róisín Murphy's career, both as part of Moloko and as a solo artist, has been marked by a willingness to experiment and push the boundaries of musical genres. With her distinctive voice and creative vision, she has left an indelible mark on the music industry. She continues to inspire with her groundbreaking sounds and her passion for artistic exploration.
