About Major Murphy

Hailing from Grand Rapids, Michigan, Major Murphy makes a laid-back brand of harmony-rich indie rock with a psychedelic bent. The group formed in 2015 behind the songwriting of singer/multi-instrumentalist Jacob Bullard. Jacki Warren (synth/bass/vocals) and Brian Voortman (drums) rounded out the lineup. A home-recorded debut EP called Future Release arrived later in 2015, and the trio soon committed to performing live regularly and went on their first tours. Winspear caught wind of Major Murphy and signed the band for their follow-up EP On & Off Again, released in July 2017. That November, the group previewed a more vibrant sound with "Mary," the lead single off their full-length debut. Recorded mostly live in the studio with producer/mixer Mike Bridavsky (Hoops, FAWNN), No. 1 arrived on Winspear in March 2018. ~ Marcy Donelson
