Murphy & the Giant


"We are not strangers

WE are friends you HAVEN'T met yet!"


Based out of Salt lake city Utah, Murphy & the Giant is a high energy 5 piece Irish inspired folk rock band with songs on social commentary, triumph, woe, friendship and celebration. This irreverent band was formed around front man Dan O'Connor in the Salt lake city area with Jamie Mcintosh on violin, Jesus Acosta on lead guitar, Mitch Shepard on bass and Ray Amarosa on drums. Murphy and the Giant is a fun, rowdy folk rock experience for any bar or venue to drink and dance the night away to.
