Mike Murphy – Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin, Harmonica
Born in Verdun Que several years ago. Relocating to Ottawa in 1981. Mike started dabbling with guitar at age 13 but only ever played as a hobby. It wasn’t until a serious injury that left him unable to walk for a number of months that he started to play more. It was also when he started to sing. In 2006 Mike formed a few basement bands, out of that a successful duo called Mike n’ Marty was born. When Marty Vallieres was unable to continue Mike added a few more guys to create The Fake McCoys. Music humbles me and I am honored every time I get to play for someone.
My favorite guitar. A Taylor 426CE-LTD, Tasmanian Blackwood all around built for me in California in 2009. I have yet to find another that sounds like this one.
