About Patrick Murphy
As a teenager, Patrick sharpened his entertaining skills by entering talent contests and performing in the local opry shows. His family settled in Fort Bend County on the outskirts of Houston, Texas where country music was booming. Growing up in the shadow of the Astrodome, Murphy became focused with the intention of one day headlining the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Patrick formed his band and began singing professionally after graduation. In the early days, a “honky-tonk degree” landed him many “distinguished jobs”…Patrick worked where he had to in order to pay the bills, but never lost sight of The Dream. His good-boy looks and bad-boy attitude came together for incredible live performances and it didn’t take long for Patrick to gain a loyal fan base. Whether it is a heart-felt ballad or a honky-tonk melody, Patrick Murphy thrives on stage with a God given voice. He appeals to a diverse fan base, combining his traditional country roots with today's top country sounds.
As a songwriter, Patrick shines through with self-penned songs that are destined chart toppers. Patrick found early success with his regional hit "Don't Call Me", which held the #1 spot for more than eight weeks in the coveted Houston country radio market. The song's success increased his regional appeal and confirmed the degree of importance that radio promotion has on an artist’s career. Patrick's release of his debut album, "The Rest of Forever", was a huge success, delivering two national singles, "Girl's Like Her, Like Men Like Me" and "The Rest of Forever". Eight of the eleven songs on the CD were written by Patrick. The highly anticipated project was accompanied by a music video for the title track, "The Rest of Forever", airing on both CMT and GAC. His latest project, still awaiting release, will take listeners on a journey back in time to when Country Music had soul, integrity and wasn’t so…”Politically Correct”. His band is still tearing up dancehalls and fairs throughout the southwest and is coming, soon, to town near you! Though it’s no longer Grandmas' floor, the stage is set for Patrick to take. And, as the spotlight shines on this native son of Texas, it’s plain to see that Patrick Murphy is a true sense of -- Something Special!
