Dublin 2, County Dublin
"[...] You could administer this instead of anaesthetic".
Combining a love of old-school deep soul, jazz, funk, dusty production quality and topped with some pop sensibilities - Uly weaves together sonic threads to make music reminiscent of "a version of the '70s that never happened".
Each a result of his own singular vision and craft - Uly's releases have gone strength to strength, both in quality of writing and production - each receiving high local acclaim. While unintentionally being received as a fresh and unique addition to the local Irish independent music scene, Uly's discography has a particular motif at the heart of it: it's groovy, dusty and wants to get stuck in your head.
Despite writing, recording and producing solely by himself - Uly has curated a live show with some of the country's finest musicians, and made long and strong strides since his live debut in May of 2019:
Two sold-out headliners, festival slots from the fledgeling Eastbound (Aiken Promotions), eccentric and cosy Another Love Story to the juggernaut Electric Picnic - as well as considered support slots with the likes of Durand Jones & the Indications.
"[...] Murphy has talent to burn, and it's so loose and carefree I can barely handle it".
