POSTDATA

POSTDATA is the solo project of songwriter, vocalist and producer Paul Murphy, who is also known for his work in the Canadian band Wintersleep.
Written and recorded in his small hometown of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, the first record was a gift to his mother that he made with his brother Michael - an intimate offering largely centered around acoustic guitar, and his trademark gravelly tenor, with a light mixture of electronic and acoustic instrumentation & ambience stitching it all together. From there the project has evolved into a more fleshed out and dynamic production that has featured an all-star cast of performers and friends Simone Pace (Blonde Redhead), Andy Monaghan (Frightened Rabbit), Tony Doogan (Mogwai, Belle & Sebastian), Ali Chant (Perfume Genius, Soccer Mommy) as well as his friends in Wintersleep.
Murphy's latest record "Twin Flames" has garnered worldwide acclaim and has been described by MOJO as “Proof that inventive, envelope-pushing indie rock hasn’t disappeared off the map just yet."
He has toured extensively in the UK, US, Europe, and Canada, and is known for his powerful live performances.
Paul Murphy is currently working on new music to be released in 2023.
