Date / Time
One of Australia’s most impressive songwriters and performers, Nick Murphy will tour Australia once again in 2019, following the release of his long-awaited sophomore full length album, Run Fast Sleep Naked.
Run Fast Sleep Naked is the latest in a series of widely acclaimed releases from the singer/producer/multi-instrumentalist, including Built on Glass – a platinum-selling effort that won him seven ARIA Music Awards including Best Male Artist and Producer of the Year, and lead to him playing sold out shows on five continents; appearing at major international festivals including Coachella and Glastonbury; performing on television internationally including The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live!; and seeing his music videos receive hundreds of millions of views, including over 180 million views alone for his MTV VMA-nominated video for ‘Gold’
To make Run Fast Sleep Naked, Murphy spent four years traveling the world solo with a microphone in his suitcase, recording his vocal tracks in whichever spaces and environments most inspired him. During that time, he immersed himself in intense self-examination, a process aided by his reading of Joseph Campbell’s theories of the artist’s shaman-like role in modern society. With its penetrating songwriting and kaleidoscopic palette, Run Fast Sleep Naked is a hypnotically candid document of that searching, an album equally informed by constant questioning and steadily arriving at fragments of truth.
For this tour, Nick Murphy has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from every ticket will go to organisations bringing dignity, equity, and access to communities who need it.
