More about this show
  • FUNK
  • SOUL

Since 2000, Patrick Murphy has performed as a bassist, guitarist, composer, vinyl selector, and soundsystem operator.

With a diverse and versatile background in all things music, Murphy encompasses a sound that blends his thirst for roots music from around the globe, conservatory studies of classical & jazz, and inquiries into contemporary sounds that blur the acoustic and electronic realms.

With a lifelong career in the piano restoration trade, he has a keen interest in woodworking, acoustics and the intrinsic healing power of sound. At the intersection of a deep love of the reggae sound systems of Jamaica and the UK, led Murphy to build his first soundsystem, debuted at the end of 2019.

After years of being a sideman and DJ, Murphy began to hone in on a new, but classic, sound and formed his cosmic jazz ensemble Sitka Sun.
