EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Eau Claire native and professional musician Bri Murphy has released her first EP and joined Tyler Mickelson on Hello Wisconsin to talk about it!
With two pianists for parents, Bri has been making music since before she can remember. She started playing violin when she was four years old, and since then picked up piano, mandolin, guitar, French horn, and a little bit of banjo. Bri was born and raised in northwestern Wisconsin, but she has strong roots in Tennessee. She spent her childhood summers eating okra and sweet corn in the Tennessee countryside. Many of her favorite family stories center around Uncle Jimmy, who owned the Black Poodle nightclub in the notorious original Printer's Alley.
Bri moved to Nashville in 2011 and has since shared the stage with artists from Chris Stapleton to Tanya Tucker, and has toured all over the U.S., Canada, and Japan. She took a break from the road in late 2015 to pursue her solo career and has released her EP
Her Hometown Release Show is Saturday, Feb. 4th at Volume One in Eau Claire. To hear her music, watch the videos above!
