Tony Murphy is an impressive contemporary Swing singer and although a varied and versatile artist covering most genres of music ‘Swing is most definitely his Thing”.
Tony’s smooth vocals and showmanship combined with his modern take on the classic songs from the American Songbook has earned him comparisons to both current crooner Michael Buble and also Bobby Darin, although he is not a tribute act as such! Tony prefers to make songs his own, breathing new life into some of the greatest songs ever written without straying too far from the original.
As well as performing the songs of contemporary artists such as Michael Buble, Robbie Williams, Harry Connick Jr, Van Morrison John Mayer and Jamie Cullum, Tony excels at covering the classic tunes of Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack, Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett, Andy Williams and Matt Monro.
Furthermore, his versatility as a vocalist stretches to other genre’s of music such as Country, Pop, Rock n Roll, Soul, as well as all the crowd pleasing party favourites guaranteed to get any party on it’s feet.
So whether he’s performing with an 18 piece Orchestra, thrilling you with his two man Rat Pack act or belting out Party and pop favourites, his commitment to customer satisfaction and attention to detail make him your artist of choice!
Tony tells us in his own words about his journey so far…
My name is Tony Murphy, welcome to my world. Although music has always been a passion of mine, performing on the big stage was always something I thought ‘other people did’ and it wasn’t until 2008 that I decided to test the water for myself. I entered a talent competition run by a popular National Newspaper called ‘Vote the Video-Search for a Star’ and I finished runner-up. Not a bad start! But it wasn’t until several years later and after winning several more smaller competitions, that I entered ‘British Airways Got Talent’ which I ended up winning! I knew then that this was the direction I wanted my life to take.
Opportunities follow success and I have been fortunate enough to perform at many high profile events and fundraisers across the country as well as being invited to sing with an 18piece Orchestra. Something I had always dreamed of and continue to do. It’s not every day you get to perform with a Big Band.
As well as performing at Corporate Events, Cabaret Shows, Weddings, Black Tie Events, Festivals, Fundraisers, Clubs and Private Functions, I have also performed in Musical Theatre, where I learned to dance as well as sing.
I am very customer focussed, commited to delivering excellent performance and service whilst following my passion, having fun and sharing my success with you!
