There'll be many a fabulous voice to be heard at this years Rhythmtree and we're thrilled to be able to include the supreme Welsh singer Julie Murphy amongst them.
Her remarkable voice, spectral and beautiful one moment and darkly rich the next, has led to collaborations with John Cale and Robert Plant and to TIME OUT declaring her a ’must see, must hear singer’
In 2016 Julie released her fourth solo album ‘EVERY BIRD THAT FLIES’ receiving support and airplay from across the BBC plus independents like Resonance and FRUK. The album was included in the MOJO Top ten folk albums of 2016 list and was a fROOTS magazine critics choice album and now one of the tracks the gorgeous "Willie Taylor" has been nominated for an award at the 2017 BBC Folk awards.
“I think I can hear the musical DNA of Nico, Lal Waterson & PJ Harvey’s White Chalk in Julie Murphy's beautiful 2012 album A Quiet House. Anyway, whatever it is, I’m absolutely smitten.”
Amazingly Julie has never been to the Isle of Wight before, not even on holiday, but we'll sure the Rhythmtree crowd will give her the kind of reception that will ensure she comes back again very soon.
