Story behind the picture #2

What’s going on in this picture? Well…it’s just another day in Mr. Murphy’s life… 😉

There’s more to tell about this picture though.
Two years ago Robb released ‘Headstrong’. For this song a video was created, involving a bunch of animals who escaped from the zoo.
In the run-up to the release we shared photos of the making of the video, created a story around the animals and also shared photos of animals taking over Robb’s house. Next to that a few promotional videos were made. When the picture above was taken, Robb was filming this video…animal on the loose…

…and then his phone rang… 😆
The person Robb was speaking to probably never knew what was happening.

For the next video Robb dressed up as a zookeeper… trying to catch those pesky animals:

Thinking back about the ‘Headstrong’-release makes me giggle. The making of the video and the run-up to the release brought so much fun and laughter!

Here’s a link to the pictures of the video shoot. This will give you an idea of how the making of the video went:

Preparing the release and the making of the video took up a lot of time. Many people were involved with the video, including friends, family, band members and even The Ulster Quartet!
Along the process more ideas came up and there was this last minute idea to make a release video. Band members got involved once more to help with the making of that video. The animals took over Robb’s house…waiting for Mr Postman to deliver a ‘Headstrong’-vinyl.

The release of ‘Headstrong’ was a success; the song received a lot of critical acclaim. ‘Headstrong’ is one of Robb’s most streamed songs on Spotify and yesterday the video passed the 20000 views on YouTube.

Music to celebrate life

Publicatie1

‘…Murphy’s lyrics are serene, subtle and tender…’

‘…it will stop anyone who appreciates quality music in their tracks…’

‘…There’s no doubt in my mind that these tunes will continue to impress folk lovers for years to come…’

Just a few quotes from a review we received of ‘The Mysteries of the Heart’ last week.
The review was written by Tommi Tikka, who’s the curator of the ‘Music To Celebrate Life’-playlist on www.musicto.com

A couple of weeks ago I submitted ‘The Mysteries of the Heart’ to this playlist and a few days later Tommi Tikka got in touch with me. He listened to the song and was impressed. We had a nice conversation by email, some more information was exchanged and Tommi wrote a review.

We were really happy to read this review. First it’s encouraging and motivating when someone takes time to listen to the music, but it’s even more encouraging when the music stops people in their tracks and makes them listen to more. Receiving positive reviews and feedback is great but what makes a review special is when you read what a song does and how it affects someone.

As an artist, Robb writes and records a lot of music. Things that inspire him are just everyday situations, nature, dreams etc. Once a song is released we always hope that people will listen, but even more we hope that people can identify with the lyrics and that the music will affect them. There really is nothing more rewarding than that!
