Darin Murphy – drums, vocals, guitar. The job of SKYROCKET’S music director naturally fell to Darin Murphy, who has an ear for detail that borders on the obsessive. Murphy used to spend hours on end with his 4-track tape machine replicating early Beatles songs by himself. The legendary home recordings once landed him a job portraying John Lennon on Broadway. A former nightclub DJ, Murphy combines his music programming skills with his drum groove to pack dance floors at the band’s live shows. He has released several original recordings on his own (search the iTunes store) and with his sister Trish Murphy, as well as appearing with dozens of Austin artists including Soulhat, the Real Heroes, BoDeans, Patricia Vonne, Jesse Dayton and Cotton Mather. Loves: wife, son, cat and vinyl LPs.
