Biography

Growing up on his dad's chillout compilations along with vocal albums from the jazz great Chet Baker, Australian electronica artist Nick Murphy launched his career with a downtempo cover of Blackstreet's "No Diggity." Looking to avoid any confusion with the Australian singer of the same name, Murphy dubbed himself Chet Faker when he made "No Diggity" his first upload to the Internet in 2011. After the song became a viral hit, Faker released his debut EP, Thinking in Textures, on the Opulent label in 2012. A year later he partnered with fellow Aussie Flume on the Lockjaw EP released on Future Classic, while 2014 saw Downtown Records release his slow and serene debut album, Built on Glass, which debuted at number one on the Australian ARIA Charts. Despite his success, Murphy felt his sound was changing, and in 2016 he announced he was dropping the Chet Faker name and moving forward as Nick Murphy. That year he released the tracks "Fear Less" and "Stop Me (Stop You)." In 2017 Murphy delivered the Missing Link EP, featuring the single "Your Time." ~ David Jeffries
