After 7 weeks in the top ten, Katie Murphy's single Oooo! (She's got a lot going on!) has charted at #1 on 92.9 KICK FM, WInnipeg's Indie station. Oooo! is the lead track off of Murphy's new EP Exes & Uh-Ohs (http://itunes.apple.com/artist/katie-murphy/id214155491), released in the Spring of 2011, following a National tour.
The song also caught the attention of L.A.'s NOMA Music - in June of 2011, Murphy signed a deal with NOMA to pursue licensing opportunities for the EP.
Exes & Uh-Ohs has charted on college radio across Canada, and is receiving glowing reviews;
Exes & Uh Ohs is a revealing album that straddles longing lyrics with playful embellishments — so dolefully sincere; it’s hard not to be affected.
Musically, Murphy transcends typical singer/songwriter fare, falling closer into the realm of multi-instrumental indie folk rock.
Murphy's bluesy vocals are silky but husky in a way that only hints at how mesmerizing she must be live.
