I first started singing in churches when I was in primary school as part of the children's choir. I later progressed on to the folk group and was introduced to many great artist's work such as those of Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, John Denver and James Taylor. My interest in singing and performing led me to enrol in the Professional Musicianship Training Course in voice and piano for a year at Newpark School of Jazz, Dublin, which was of immense benefit in developing my style of singing.

Soon couples started asking me if I would perform at their church or civil ceremony and my repertoire and experience began to expand. I can also perform at your reception drinks party, providing a wide range of suitable songs and background music. I have sung for many weddings over the years, including celebrity couple Dominic West and Catherine Fitzgerald. Dominic is best known for his role as Detective Jimmy McNulty in the American drama series The Wire. Click here to read an article published by Claire Murphy in The Evening Herald.

As a singer and guitarist, I am delighted to be part of a couple’s special day and I always endeavour to provide the best possible service. Depending on your musical taste and budget, I can also work with other musicians- fiddle player Diarmuid O'Brien and piano player Ciaran Couglan. You can view the structure of a typical wedding ceremony below along with the songs I perform.
