Album Notes
“Up-and-coming singer/songwriter Dave Murphy is a natural storyteller who uses both image-rich lyrics and compelling melodies to illustrate his tale…Murphy's music at once thought-provoking and an easy listen, graciously rides the fine folk/Americana line.” -Fairfield County Weekly

On "Yellow Moon," his fifth album, Dave Murphy has recruited a perfectly sympathetic and adroit backing band. At the
center and heartbeat is Shawn Pelton, one of the most in-demand studio drummers in the business; Pelton has worked
with Sheryl Crow, Shawn Colvin, Bruce Springsteen, and Billy Joel. He's also the longtime drummer in the Saturday Night
Live house-band. Other major contributors include Marc Muller (Steve Forbert, Shania Twain, Donald Fagan) on electric,
lap & pedal steel guitar and David Henry (Josh Rouse, David Mead, Indigo Girls) on strings, backing vocals and guitars.
Dave self-produced "Yellow Moon" and the songs are loaded with moments from an intimate relationship. All the
invigorating and demoralizing parts are there. The voice has a resignation, swelling and painful, through different turns,
but always with a subtext of hope. Some of Dave's influences are afloat in the shadows: Neil Young, Steve Earle and Don
Williams. He is also informed by living life richly, traveling the world, following his heart and surviving cancer.

Each of Dave's albums has broadened his audience by quantum leaps resulting in increased presence on many of the
major Americana and Triple-A radio stations across the country. His songs have found their way climbing the Americana
Music Association's and many Triple-A charts like FMQB's.

"Yellow Moon" should easily continue to add to the many awards and rave reviews he has received. And, Murphy is a real
road warrior who has performed at hundreds of venues across the country from the renowned Kerrville Folk Festival in
Texas to the intimate Tin Angel in Philadelphia. He's shared the stage with some of the world's great artists including
Suzanne Vega, Steve Forbert, Slaid Cleaves and Alejandro Escovedo.

John Platt, host of “Sunday Breakfast” on WFUV FM in New York City described Jersey based singer-songwriter Dave Murphy as “the real deal.” During an on-air interview Platt asked Murphy; “being from the northeast, how is it that your music has such a feel of the American heartland?” Murphy paused and answered; “well John… it’s because I like milk.” Funny guy that Dave Murphy.
