Although Elliot Murphy is originally from Long Island, he moved to France 20 years ago. Back in the 70s, Elliott played around these parts a good deal. These days Elliott makes it to New York City once or twice a year to play.
Elliott’s music is straight ahead rock with interesting, literate lyrics. He’s held in high regard by other musicians, and special guests on his albums have included Bruce Springsteen, Mick Taylor, Billy Joel, Phil Collins, Sonny Landreth, David Johansen, The Violent Femmes, Cindy Bullens and Shawn Colvin.
Although Elliott’s appearance in New York City have been with The Normandy All Stars (his current band), tonight’s show is just Elliott solo. Given Elliott’s story-telling songs, his dynamic guitar playing and his easy rapport with an audience, this is certainly a show worth your time and attention.
