Now based on Ireland’s west coast, GAVIN MURPHY hails from Dublin’s North Side. He is the lead guitarist and band manager of the successful Smiths tribute band These Charming Men, which he formed in 1995.
He has worked as a session guitarist, both live and in the recording studio.
Gavin has decided to take on lead vocal duties and release his debut album, “45 RPM (Replay Past Memories).”
“It has always been a dream and a goal of mine to release some of my original material, and I feel now is the time to put the songs out there...
“I am very proud of quite a few songs that I have co-written over the years with some of my fellow musicians and best friends.”
Gavin has performed, recorded, produced and mixed his original material in his home recording studio in Sligo.
His eldest son, Daragh, lives in Oslo and is an accomplished guitarist and music producer. He has brilliantly contributed to this project as co-producer, on song mixes and has played on a number of Gavin’s songs.
Gavin would like to thank and acknowledge his dear friends and co-writers : Tony Kavanagh, John McGeer, Peter Walsh, and Richard Cullen.
Special thanks to my friend, Rob Malone, for co-production on “My Regret” and for his great ear!
