There are 2 performers with this name: 1) an American singer, who fronts Virginia contemporary folk group Eddie From Ohio; 2) a British singer, who fronts Welsh neo-traditional folk group Fernhill. 1) Raised by a musically-talented family in northern Virginia, Julie Murphy (now Julie Murphy Wells) has had singing as an avocation since childhood. Her rich, clear voice has been a hallmark of indie folk powerhouse Eddie From Ohio since she and three friends founded it in 1991; despite the demands of touring, she released two solo albums in the first half of the 1990s. No Rules is a collection of her own songs and covers; Sophisticated Lady is a collection of jazz standards. 2) Julie Murphy is also the distinctive singer with Welsh band Fernhill, who has also made two albums in her own name, Black Mountains Revisited, her fresh interpretations of traditional songs and some own compositions with traditional influence, and the Lilac Tree, featuring her own more personal songs. She has also released an album with guitarist Dylan Fowler, Ffawd, of traditional Welsh songs. Her 2012 album, A Quiet House, is available from her website juliemurphymusic dot com.
