Savannah Songwriters Artist Feature – Jamison Murphy

Jamison Murphy is an indie-folk musician and singer-songwriter with two album releases under his belt and a new one due out this month.  His albums showcase his literary-inspired lyrics and ability to play numerous instruments.

Jamison was recently featured in New York is Boring, which said, among other things, “This kid is freakin’ Mozart” and “His
lyricism echoes the philosophical content of giants such as Goethe and Nietzsche.”

He has shared the stage with a variety of indie and folk groups including Venice Is Sinking, General Oglethorpe and the Panhandlers, Besides Daniel, and The Carolina Chocolate Drops.  He is a prominent member of local folk and indie scenes, and sits on the advisory board of the Savannah Folk Music Society, where he won the Youth Songwriting Competition in 2008 at the age of12.

The instruments he plays include the guitar, dulcimer, banjo, mandolin, harmonica,
geecheetar (cigar-box guitar), bulbul tarang, and many others.  His lyrics are often inspired by literature including authors such as Faulkner, O’Connor, Salinger, Joyce, and Tolstoy.  He lists John Coltrane, Neutral Milk Hotel, Minutemen, the Mountain Goats, and Bob
Dylan as some of the musicians that inspire him.

Jamison Murphy will join Jefferson Ross, Stan Ray, Gary Swindell & Roy Swindelle IN THE ROUND this Sunday in the Cha Bella Courtyard.

Show starts at 6pm
