Singer-songwriter Alicia Murphy

Singer-songwriter Alicia Murphy will perform in Long Beach this month.

Folksinger Alicia Murphy brings her Southern California summer tour to Long Beach with performances at The Blue Cafe, Viento Y Agua and Que Sera.

Alicia will continue her July residency at The Blue Cafe on Thursday, July 19. The following evening, July 20, she will play at Viento Y Agua for her only remaining free, all-ages performance. She will close out her summer tour with a final performance at the Blue Cafe July 26 and Revival at Que Sera August 3.

Singer, songwriter and instrumentalist Alicia Murphy has self-produced and -released multiple collections of her songs. But this summer, she has been putting the finishing touches on a special project: Her first studio EP, recorded with Rami Jaffee (Foo Fighters, The Wallflowers) and Ran Pink of Fonogenic Studios in Van Nuys, CA, slated to be released in early August. 

For the past three years, Alicia has been performing at a range of venues throughout Southern and Northern California, sharing the stage with an eclectic assortment of musicians, including Daryl Hannah, Minnie Driver, Joesph Arthur, George Watsky and Ben Sollee.

Alicia Murphy’s performances range from just-a-girl-and-her-guitar to full rock band. Most often she performs as a folky duet with her sister Sé Reed, who provides harmonies, backing vocals, and light percussion. Guitarist John Oliver and drummer Evan Freeman will help rock out the sound for some of her Long Beach performances.

Alicia is currently studying hydrology at UC Davis and is passionate about environmental conservation, particularly water conservation and clean water access, a theme that is present in many of her songs.
