Shy Murphy is an up and coming band recently transplanted in Nashville, TN from Houston, TX. It all started when Bryce Carter and Ryan Booth started writing songs together while going to Texas A&M University. In May of 2004, while Ryan was working at Sputnik Studio in Nashville, Shy Murphy recorded it's first CD. It was about that time that Patrick Hunton started playing bass with the band. Fast forward 8 months, and the band is all living in Nashville, playing shows around town whenever they can. Shy Murphy's main influences are Josh Rouse and Coldplay, but also include Nick Drake, U2, and a little bit of Motown.
