Singer-songwriter Branan Murphy on Friday released his self-titled debut EP, Branan Murphy, on Provident Label Group. The six-track project features his four previously released songs, "All The Wrong Things (feat. Koryn Hawthorne)," "Enough," "Talk About It," and "My Life," which have collectively garnered over four million streams in less than one and a half year.
Accompanying his first EP, Murphy is releasing two new music videos, one for his multi-format single "My Life," as well as the previously unreleased hip-hop collaboration "Top of the World," featuring Reflection Music Group's Canon, and COBRA producer JuiceBangers.
"This project feels like the beginning of letting the world in on who I am," Murphy shares. "There's a lot of diversity on this record, a lot of raw honesty, a lot of energy - all of those things fit my personality well."
"It excites me to have these six songs together on the same record because I think each song will hit people in a different way, from a different angle," Murphy continues. "I like being able to communicate and express myself that way."
He adds, "Just when you think you have me figured out, I give you something new to taste. I love that about art. I hope people really vibe with this introduction and it only makes them want more."
Over the past year, Murphy has released music, showcasing his penchant for combining brutally honest lyrics with catchy hook-laden melodies. His first three singles all entered the Top 10 on the CHR radio chart.
Murphy's debut single "All The Wrong Things (feat. Koryn Hawthorne)" peaked at No 5 and was the second most-played single of 2017 behind Lecrae's "I'll Find You (feat. Tori Kelly)." His follow-up, "Enough," made it to No. 3 on the CHR charts, and his third single "Talk About It" was added early by Air1.
His latest single "My Life" is featured at radio now and, along with "Top of the World," his new EP also features a sixth song, titled "Maybe." Currently, Murphy is busy bringing his music on the "Air1 Positive Hits" tour, where he is performing alongside artists such as Zach Williams, We Are Messengers, Joshua Micah, and Aaron Cole.
