Q: Where, and how, was the band formed? How did you come up with the band’s name?
A: Ryan D. and Marcus have been friends since diapers and Ryan S. and Marcus have known each other for about 15 years or so. Marcus had just moved back from Omaha, Neb., and was looking to start a band up and it just so happened that the Ryans were also looking to start something new.
We were just getting started with the band and had a couple songs written but didn’t have any ideas for a name. Murphy is a dog that lives in Omaha whose owner is a friend of the band. Marcus was visiting and awoke to the owners girlfriend screaming at Murphy “No Murphy!” because he ate her sandals. Go Murphy just had a better ring to it.
Q: What kind of music does the band play? How would you describe its sound?
A: Alternative/Indie Rock – Lots of open space with each instrument complementing the other.
