Lauren Murphy, Entertainer (4:13) from Appleberry Pictures on Vimeo.

 

In an era of fast-food over-commercialized under-souled music , Lauren Murphy is not just a breath of fresh air, but a throw-back to the days of true performance art. She is an essence performer with real 'Star Quality' that reaches a spiritual human connection with her audience. Murphy moves "with" and "into", truly 'becoming' the Music; a sentiment that resonates with anyone lucky enough to experience her solo or with one of her fine ensembles . 

Lauren Murphy is a Veteran Singer/Songwriter based out of Fairhope, Al who boasts nearly two decades of experience in the San Francisco Rock Arena. Compared to Janis Joplin & Grace Slick, Murphy's powerhouse vocals & passion have a grit all her own. Best known for her time in ZERO with Bob Weir guitarist, Steve Kimock and her late husband, The Judge, Lauren has been dubbed "Lady Willpower" by Relix Magazine. 'WWOZ NoLa Jazz & Heritage Radio" says "Excellent", and 'No Depression Magazine' reviews Murphy as "Simply Brilliant. Having worked w/ Papa Mali, members of Big Brother and the Holding Company, The JerryGarcia Band, Wavy Gravy, the Jefferson Airplane, Will Kimbrough, and many more music royalty, Murphy is now the keeper of the flame of a genre that began in the mid-1960's, pushing the limits of form and improvisation while remaining true to the message of song and sound. She is likewise a stand-alone songwriter who Jambase reviews as penning "songs from the heart, the real deal." She has been featured at the legendary 'Frog Pond Sunday Social" Folk Alliance House Concert for 5 consecutive seasons, and her music can be heard on radio stations from the West to East Coasts.  "Lauren Murphy & The Psychedelics" is her current endeavor, with plans for the band to record their first album this winter.

He was in his mountain home surrounded by the deep love of his family & friends. His courage and strength have been nothing short of heroic. We love you Judge; you will be deeply missed and always remembered." Judge joined Zero in 1991, adding a voice to a band that had previously focused on instrumental material. More recently he fronted Lansdale Station with longtime partner Lauren Murphy.
