Lauren Murphy - Composer~ Guitar~ Vox~
Baton Rouge, La. born Touring artist, Lauren Murphy is best known for her background vocals with the San Francisco based band Zero(Steve Kimock, Robert Hunter, Judge Murphy), and as band leader/main composer of Lansdale Station(2005-2013), the award winning act she established with her late husband, legendary vocalist, The Judge. Relocating from the Bay Area to the Sierra Nevada Mountains in 2012, her recent compositions are notably some of the best in her career, and quite a buzz is circulating on social media and in the press. Her shows have been largely sold out,thanks to the popularity of new songs 'El Dorado', 'Snow on the Dogwoods',and 'Sweet Louisa'. A classically trained musician who studied at LSU, Lauren has primarily worked in the rock and roll arena, and is respected as an iconic singer throughout Northern and Central California. Mourning the death of her singing partner, Judge Murphy(9/15/2013), she has turned back toward her love of the warm toned acoustic music she began her career with over 15 years ago. During that time she's worked with some of the industry's best and played many destination venues and festivals. Her music can be heard on main stream and public radio stations around the world. Murphy is currently recording her new CD with Grammy Nominated Producer, Mooka Rennick of Prairie Sun Studios in Cotati, Ca. It will feature an all-star lineup of veteran players she's worked with over the years.
Compared to Patty Griffin, EmmyLou Harris, & Grace Slick, with the passion of Janis Joplin, Murphy is completely unique in her vocal stylings.

A third generation Bay Area native, Judge Murphy began his musical career in 1965 as lead vocalist in the 'LOST & FOUND', a band of Redwood High school kids with a passion for rock & roll. These were times of the British Musical explosion on the American scene, & bands like The Byrds, Dylan, & The Airplane, Dead, & Quicksilver, right here at home. With this vast palate of musical influence, 'The Judge' set out on a path that would gain him great musical acclaim. Playing the rec. hall & frat house circuit of the 60's, Murphy & his band won numerous 'Battle of the Band' contests in the Bay Area. Judge , also a great drummer, played dual roles as singer / drummer , in a number of bands that he captained through the 1980's , including MURPHY'S LAW.
...
It was his association & singing w/ John Cipollina on a tune penned by John, called "Hired Hand", that Murphy got an audition with the Bay Area Band, ZERO.
...
Lauren shared the stage with Judge as background vocalist for ZERO from 1998-2000, until Steve Kimock left to pursue a career with "The Other Ones".

JUDGE MURPHY: SOLID SURVIVOR Lansdale Station featuring Judge & Lauren Murphy: Articles & Reviews
In January of this year one of the great veterans of the Bay Area rock scene, Judge Murphy was diagnosed with liver cancer after a gig with his band Lansdale Station. This year has been an ongoing challenge to Judge and his longtime partner Lauren Murphy, who helm Lansdale, but there are friends gathering to help the Murphys through this stretch. For the next two nights, March 4 & 5, Judge will rejoin his mates in Zero at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco for a pair of benefit shows for the Judge Murphy Wellness Fund.
The challenges continue with Judge's fight with cancer, and right now a transplant remains the best option. He starts a new round of treatment in a few days.
...
The collective efforts of Judge & Lauren Murphy are the collaboration of storied past with a glimpse of an untapped future, a rebirth of the sensationalized San Francisco sound of sixties glory.
...
Led by the powerful singing duo of Judge Murphy (Zero) and spouse Lauren Murphy, Lansdale Station is what I call a "fundamental pleasure," a group that has all the basics down cold and then fills in the right details and delivers performances that still feel very much of the moment - think Buddy & Julie Miller or Gillian Welch & David Rawlings as prime examples.
...
From the dead solid songwriting to the crisp musicianship, there's sturdy bedrock to each cut, which Lauren and Judge use as platforms for their spirited, character-filled voices to soar. There's wonderful boy-girl energy to the pair, though each sings with serious oomph on their own, too.
...
"Lansdale Station is by definition, a throwback, a band with all the members being cogs in a musical wheel with Lauren and Judge exuding the aura of the past with an eye on the future. They are collectively the fuel of contemporary creative fire. The tawdry approach of current bands making millions of dollars for inferior live performances cannot mirror the hours spent to hone the crisp, energetic demeanor of this band as they saunter across the stages of the west coast. The psycho babble of the past has given way to stage charisma, crowd rapport and exudes the love and passion for what they excel in doing. The mystery and mystique of the past is still a mirrored image but they are on the verge of compiling a legacy that brings San Francisco back to it's rightful place in the pantheons of a musical epi-center, and who better to perpetuate the folklore than Lauren, Judge and the band?
We aren't trying to digress and relive those halcyon days of yesteryear but more of who is capable of songs of the heart and lyrics that are feasible of once again uniting the masses. Enter Lauren and Judge Murphy and the members of Lansdale Station with songs that could be those of epic proportions once exposed to the music fans across the globe. An ingenue and band revered in the bay area, the group brings a touch of sunshine with vibrant performances that resonate throughout the west coast and The Ghosts of Avalon are rising from the ashes. Lauren brings the elegance of Diana, the genetics of Grace without the bravado and provocative demeanor and the passion that mirrors all great songwriters and performers. Songs of life, love and universal peace, much like Teach Your Children, Sweet Baby James and Almost Cut My Hair are those musical beacons that float in a sea of banality and Lauren, Judge and Lansdale Station are the heirs to the throne that separates them from all others.
We've waited for a myriad of years and the timing is critical so, when access can be allocated, we, the collective musical family need to clap our hands and stomp our feet so that the gifts brought by Lauren & Judge don't dissipate into the sunset.
As the adage goes, the likes of this talent may never pass this way again".
For the survivors of those golden days long ago, for Lauren, Judge and Lansdale Station, bless us all.

Lansdale Station, a Marin band, spotlighting the husband and wife team of Judge & Lauren Murphy, takes its name from what was once the first San Anselmo stop of the old Northern Pacific Railroad. It's a hip historical reference for a band whose understanding of rock's past is evident on their eponymous debut CD, showcasing six original songs and one very cool cover in a traditional guitar-driven style that mixes Southern rock with a fresh take on the San Francisco Sound. Raised in Marin, Judge Murphy sang for years with Zero, the Marin progressive rock aggregation that included the late Quicksilver Messenger Service guitar slinger John Cipollina.

Lauren Murphy writes most of the lyrics. Originally from New Orleans, she is schooled in dance, theatre, and music, and has her degree in English from Louisiana State University.
