Most Talented Staff Ever? (Chapter 1)

This is me bragging about the Murfie team. We’ve got a whole bunch of not-so-hidden talent in our ops staffers (the folks who receive your kits and process all your CDs, makin’ the Murfie magic happen). Most of our ops-ters play music, sing, song write, and/or produce. No joke! So let’s meet a few of these Murfie musicians today…

ALEX – Aside from the occasional jam session, most of my time performing is with Fundamentally Sound, one of the all-male a cappella groups from UW-Madison.

BRIAN – I’m a composer, cellist, electronic musician, and Chinese string instrumentalist who is creating music in Madison with Lovely Socialite, Watercourse Q4, and the Brothers Grimm. After studying Chinese music in Hong Kong and receiving my Bachelors of Music Theory & Composition, I’ve found a niche composing and performing live scores for dance and theater. Lovely Socialite’s new album Registers Her Delight is now for sale on Murfie, and the Brothers Grimm forthcoming album Redolent Spires will be available later this month!

LEAH – Music is a big part of my life in general, but in particular, I happen to play the piano and the flute. I’m mostly trained in classical music, but I’ve played some jazz and popular stuff, and love to play pretty much anything. I’m currently finishing up my music degree, and might start teaching piano lessons in the future. I also work as an accompanist for local events, and have a lot of fun playing gigs for retirement homes and with community musical pits.

JON – I’ve spent over 15 years cultivating skills as a musician, recording engineer, and producer. I’ve written songs that have been performed on stages from Oriental, North Carolina, to Olympia Stadium in Berlin, Germany (performing as part of the World Culture Festival). I’ve also used my music and engineering background to help out numerous non-profit organizations in Madison.

HENRY – I’m in a radical band called Phantom Vibration, and we play chilled out pop songs. We’re based in Saint Paul, and our catalog consists of two self-recorded EPs. We’ll be releasing a third in a few weeks! We’ll be touring the midwest and east coast this summer, so good times are ahead!
