“A heart-warming ode to Northern self-depreciating humour” – The Line of Best Fit 
‘Breaking Bread’ is taken from Murphykid’s classically acclaimed debut album that-never-was….or rather the “folk miserablist masterpiece” Al Murphy wrote following his first experience of heartbreak. An experience which saw him flee London, and return to the North, to hole himself up in his sister’s garden shed whilst putting down tracks on an eBay bought eight-track reel- to-reel. Think Bon Iver’s snowy cabin, Yorkshire style.

All this was way back in 2004. After a year of toing-and-froing with music industry types, Murphy gave up his aspirations of rock stardom and focused on other artistic endeavours and life experiences. Murphy then went on to become a successful illustrator living in Berlin, then New York.
Cut back to 2016 and Murphykid’s original reel-to-reel tapes have resurfaced, slightly flood damaged, from behind the Xmas decorations in the loft to be exact.
Now, after a little restoration work and an additional recording session at Kensaltown Studios in Ladbroke Grove, Murphykid is ready to share his charming and wistful song ‘Breaking Bread’. A track that conveys all the raw and genuine emotion of those troubled times back in 2004, laced with Murphy’s dry self-deprecating humour. A classic, heartfelt combination still as charming and fresh over a decade later.
Murphykid’s ‘Breaking Bread’ premiered on The Line of Best Fit yesterday and can now be streamed/shared via  Soundcloud | Spotify and is available as a download via iTunes.
