A different shade of blues describes the creative and entertaining playing style of Midwest recording artist Michael “Big Dog” Murphy. His playing style is a more aggressive interpretation of the blues that is fueled by passion and guided by his heartfelt emotions. As he stays true to the feeling of the blues, Michael Murphy takes a different approach by delivering a mix of traditional with a twist for the unexpected. The Blues is a state of mind, and Michael Murphy's state of mind is to take you for a memorable ride on the blues train that you will never forget...get your ticket and hold on for a wonderful experience that you will never forget! For over thirty years, live or in the studio, he has presented the best in traditional and original blues, delivered with his own style - aggressive, creative and very entertaining! He is one of the finest blues vocalists around, and an excellent guitarist as well, with a guitar style that echoes his vocal style - raw, emotional, and honest.

Whether offering a fast, sizzling, deep-fried, foot stompin' song, or, as he calls'em, a "buckle polishin'" slow blues number, his style keeps you wanting to hear more and more. His fans lament that they find themselves having to leave the show when it's over, still wanting more. But, one thing they all agree on. They always leave his performances feeling much better than when they came in. As one event promoter puts it, “Dog gives you a twenty dollar show for a two dollar ticket!”

He is one of the hottest players and singers in the genre today. Not, blazing, slinger fast, but extremely emotional, and uncomplicated. Of his playing he says, “I just bend'em till they sound right."
