About Róisín Murphy

A purveyor of adventurous, omnivorous pop, Róisín Murphy makes influences as far-flung as disco and hot jazz her own. As a solo artist, she builds on the freewheeling style she forged as Moloko's frontwoman with an easy confidence. Even given her pedigree, 2005's Ruby Blue was unexpected, fusing found sounds, vintage vocal pop, funk, and more in its loopily catchy songs. On 2007's Overpowered, she streamlined her music into something approaching mainstream pop, yet still bearing her idiosyncratic style. Her singles and EPs, such as 2014's Italian-language EP Mi Senti, are just as vital to her body of work as albums like 2015's Mercury Prize-nominated Hairless Toys, which blended house, glam rock, and country with sophistication. With 2020's pulsing Róisín Machine and the following year's remix album, she continues to blaze a trail as a one-of-a-kind talent. ~ Heather Phares
