King Fish Crow / Bio

King Fish Crow creates a passionate blend of indie folk fusion. They are led by the lyric driven songwriting of J.P. Murphy and the lush vocals of his sister Liz. The brother/sister harmonies create a beautiful tension, a war between sandpaper and silk, where everybody wins.

In May 2014, the band released their debut album, The Mercy Tree.

Corey B. Toth (Synths/Omnichord/Beats), Dave Brown (Electric Guitar) and Shane Peckham (Bass) round out an eclectic group of musicians that meld diverse influences together into a unique and organic sound; both innovative and familiar at the same time. Relying on their strong narrative presence and simple harmonies, their focus is as much about the story and the storytellers as it is about the melody and the beat.

“I am not a therapist. I am not a spiritual leader. These elements are in the art: it is therapeutic, spiritual, social and political – everything. It has many layers. But art has to have many layers. If it doesn’t then forget it.” – Marina Abramovic
