Jay Murphy of Up Until Now has so far lived his life completely centered and orbiting around music. He comes from a collective past involved in bands playing genres like reggae, world beat, rock, hip-hop, funk, electro-pop, and even heavy metal. With this new project, he distills the pure essence in music that has always driven him, and channels it into electronic dance music with the sole purpose of making bodies move. When you get talent of this type with huge broad experience, and focus it into one vision, you best believe that it burns like a laser. Now, add human drumming machine Kyle Holly from jamtronica band Noise[Org], and you have a serious live electronic force to be reckoned with.
Since playing his first show in early 2010, Murphy as Up Until Now has performed across the country from Portland to Jacksonville, and from New York City to Austin. He has been blessed to share the stage with such acts as Snoop Dogg, STS9, Big Gigantic, The New Deal, Bonobo, Two Fresh, and Emancipator, just to name a few. In the summer of 2011 he was featured at some of the top music festivals in the country such as Camp Bisco X, the Regeneration Music and Arts Festival, and the Blackwater Music Festival. After building up considerable momentum in 2011, Up Until Now is in the midst of a huge year in 2012. Don't miss his climactic show tonight at Highline Ballroom.
