Robb Murphy Releases ‘Italian Dreams’

Robb Murphy, one of Belfast’s finest singer-songwriters, is set to release ‘Italian Dreams’, a taste of the new music following on the heels of his critically acclaimed second album, ‘Sleep Tonight’. Italian Dreams was written during a long summer in Italy and is a lighthearted song with a 60’s vibe, a hint of The Beach Boys, certain to spark memories of those heady summer days and your first love. The lyric, ‘Dolce far niente’, is an important activity in Italy and translates to, ‘the sweetness of doing nothing’. The song was recorded and produced by Robb himself. Creative support provided by Kevin Carlisle on drums; Dave Bennington on trumpet and bass; Rick McKee electric guitar; with Robb providing acoustic guitar, piano and vocals. Italian Dreams is mastered by Neal Calderwood of Manor Park Studios with Art Cover provided by Ronan Reid. The single is supported by an animated lyric video created by Italian artist Marco Burani. You’re invited to enjoy ‘Italian Dreams’ as a glimpse into the future and allowing Robb Murphy to transport you to those lazy, hazy summer days gone by.

‘Italian Dreams’ is available for pre-release on the 30th June on iTunes and releases a week later in all other stores on the 7th July.

Ralph McLean – BBC Radio Ulster:
Robb Murphy is a real talent. His songs are melodic and magical. He writes from the heart and the results are spellbinding.”
