Murphy's Ford                                              9:00-Midnight

Murphy's Ford is an American country singer/songwriting duo consisting of Brandon Matthews and Ryan Tomlinson both hailing from Mid Missouri. The guys say they “stem from humble beginnings pickin’ guitars and writing songs over after work beers.” It was evident from the first song they wrote together that they had something special that deserved to be pursued beyond the back porch.

 

Murphy’s Ford’s brand of edgy get out of your seat country rock and roll is an almost perfect blend of the duos musical influences. Lead guitar player/back up vocalist Ryan Tomlinson was raised in a musical family, his father being some what of a local legend as a blues, bluegrass and country guitar player. Ryan cites his main influences as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jason Isbell, and his dad Dale Sapp. Lead singer/rhythm guitar player Brandon Matthews while also being a southern rock junky comes a little more from the country side, citing artists like George Straight, Alabama, Jason Aldean, and Bob Segar as his main musical influences.

 

Murphy’s Ford’s modern take on country music has landed them many notable opportunities since the duos creation in 2013, Including opening for country artists Trace Adkins, Frankie Ballard, Locash, Colt Ford, Eli Young band, Stoney Larue, Josh Abbott band, Aaron Watson, Thousand Horses and many more. Murphy’s Ford also made it to the state finals of the Texaco Country Showdown in 2015 and were top 10 national finalists in the Nash Next competition hosted by Nash fm and Big Machine records in 2016. Though they didn’t get the win the duo was asked to participate in the Nash Next Country Inns and Suites tour later that year. When Murphy’s Ford is not onstage turning on new fans they can be found writing songs with some of Nashville’s most talented writers at publishing companies all over town including The song factory, Dan Hodges music, Major Bob music, Russ Zavitson music, Mucho love music, The Riser house and anywhere else that will have them.
