Artist Biography

Róisín Murphy is a Dublin-born solo artist who dabbles in art pop and experimental music. When she was 12 she moved from Ireland to Manchester and remained there after her parents returned home to Dublin four years later. While on her own at age 16, she joined a post-punk band with her classmates. In 1994, she formed the electronic pop duo Moloko with producer Mark Brydon whom she had met at a party. The duo earned acclaim with a variety of releases from 1995 to the early 2000s. In 2002, Moloko split up with Róisín relocating to London to work on her solo career. She started using non-musical items like notebooks to craft sounds for her recordings, resulting in the EPs Sequins #1, Sequins #2, Sequins #3, and the 2005 album Ruby Blue. The album took inspiration from the experimentalism of Outkast’s Speakerboxxx and early 20th-century vocal jazz. The album reached number 88 on the U.K. Albums Chart and was featured in U.S. shows like Grey’s Anatomy and So You Think You Can Dance. In 2006, Róisín signed to EMI and started working on her second album which arrived in 2007 titled Overpowered. The album reached number 20 on the U.K. Albums Chart. Throughout the 2010s until the present day, she has released charting singles and albums and has been nominated for Ireland’s Choice Music Prize and the Mercury Prize.
