Chris Q. Murphy / Bio

Lying somewhere between the honky-tonk swagger of Hank Williams, the self-effacing confessionals of Loudon Wainwright III, and the wry pop wit of Elvis Costello, Chris Q. Murphy rolls his years of experiences on stage in classical choirs, in the van with indie rock bands, and nights at old-time jams into what's quickly becoming one of the most fun ways to spend a night out in Brooklyn. Backed by the Fiendish Thingies, a rotating cast of pickers and singers in their own right, Murphy has spent the last three years making believers of non-country fans in South Brooklyn and beyond. Steel guitar, upright bass, and bluegrass harmony abound, but are mere window dressing for Murphy's impressive arsenal of pop-flavored country originals and choice standard honky-tonk and bluegrass numbers.
