Chris Murphy

In Perth Richard Marx will be joined by Chris Murphy, one of Western Australia’s most special performers. After catching the nation’s (and the judges’) eye in 2006 on Australia Idol, he went on to perform ‘Waltzing Matilda’ to a packed MCG at that year’s AFL Grand Final. He has since released four solo albums which include songs ‘You Won’t Change’ and ‘Maritime Jig’ and has supported numerous Australian icons; from John Farnham and Jimmy Barnes to Daryl Braithwaite and Mental As Anything. This year, Murphy takes on a new challenge in the cast of Queen and Ben Elton’s hit musical, We Will Rock You.
