Ralph Murphy Biography:
Canadian songwriter Ralph Murphy has achieved near-legendary status in Nashville through his career as a performer, producer, songwriter, publisher, and most recently, Vice President, International and Domestic Membership, ASCAP.
He had his first UK Number One in 1965 with ‘Call My Name’ recorded by James Royal. Other hits followed with acts like Vanity Fair and The Brotherhood of Man.
In 1969 Ralph moved to New York as Director of Production for Belwin/Mills Publishing, where he produced demos for Broadway musicals and started two successful record labels. Among the many acts he produced during that time were legendary Canadian Rockers April Wine, for whom he produced two gold albums. He had a country hit in 1972 by Jeanie C. Riley ‘Good Enough To Be Your Wife’. With Roger Cook, he formed the Picalic Group and Pic-A-Lic Music Publishing and has had more than twenty Number One records and was publisher for Song of The Year, ‘Talking In Your Sleep’ by Crystal Gayle. Pic-A-Lic became one of the most successful independent publishers in Nashville and was eventually sold to EMI.
In 2006 Ralph had success in the UK charts with ‘21st Century Christmas’ (co-written by Paul Brady), a Number Two for Cliff Richard. He is also an instructor for the respected Nashville Songwriters Association International Song Camps.
