CHRIS MURPHY, Violin and TIM O’GARA, donkey bone jaw, mouth harp, guitar, and other unusual sound instruments…


  • “A mix of Celtic flavors, bluegrass, acoustic jam band, singer-songwriter waif and quirkiness. TIM’S voice is reminiscent of Paul Simon and the production often reminds me of Neil Young’s acoustic stuff, but with more exotic instrumentation.” ~ DuJour, former music critic for the NY Times, LA Times


“ Based in Los Angeles, a prolific songwriter, composer, and performer; Murphy presents his latest masterful instrumental opus Seven Crows: Secrets of Navigation. This 8-song cycle of layered violin compositions melds artfully nuanced plucked rhythmic figures, lyrical phrasing, and shimmering sustained lines, all refracted by reverbs, echoes, and modulation pedals.

Or, perhaps you’ll arrive in the artsy Southwest enclave of Bisbee, Arizona, where Murphy tracked these ambient violin elegies with producer Dan Simonis. While violin is the only instrument being played, don’t be surprised if you hear echoes of kalimba, pipe organ, birdsong, bagpipes, vintage synthesizers, or Miles Davis’ wah-wah trumpet warbles coming from that fiddle.

  • “Like fellow violin iconoclasts Warren Ellis (The Dirty Three) and Lisa Molinaro (Modest Mouse), Murphy travels with a supernatural violin in that beat-up, brooding black case. Who knows what you’ll find in there, or where it will take you. “ – James Rotundi, Jazz Times, Acoustic Guitar
