Every song on Lauren Murphy's "El Dorado" hits in places that everyone who ever draws breath is likely to feel: maybe as a sudden flush of the cheeks, as a tightening of the muscles that control laughter or tears, or maybe in the pit of the stomach.

Press Play: Lauren Murphy's 'El Dorado,' an album of loss and love
...
Lauren Murphy's CD "El Dorado"
Singer-songwriter Lauren Murphy dedicates "El Dorado," a collection of heartfelt Americana, to her late husband, Judge Murphy, her singing partner in the Marin band Lansdale Station.
The album title was inspired by the county where he died of liver cancer in 2013. The couple moved there with their daughter after decades on the Marin music scene.
Murphy wrote eight of the 10 songs on "El Dorado," including the ardent ballad "Love Again.
...
With "El Dorado," Murphy carries on a musical career she once shared with her husband. Listening to it, you can't help thinking he'd be proud of her.
This week: "El Dorado," Lauren Murphy, independent, laurenmurphymusic.com, CD Baby, $15 CD, $9.99 download
...
Will Kimbrough and Lauren Murphy, both acclaimed musicians with strong southern ties, will host the event, discussing their craft and showcasing songs from their newest albums, Kimbrough's "Sideshow Love" and Murphy's "El Dorado."
...
#Kimbrough and Murphy agree that one key ingredient to good songwriting is providing an escape, allowing the listener to transcend his or her situation, if only for a moment.
...
#"I think all great songs definitely provide that release," Murphy says.
...
#Murphy, on the other hand, thrives on meticulous organization, which she attributes to her time studying English at Louisiana State University from 1990 to 1993. For her, it begins with stream of consciousness journaling and then sifting through the pages to pull out gems that will morph into the first lyric of a song.
#Kimbrough, an Alabama native, and Murphy, originally from Louisiana and living in Apple Hill, Calif., believe that southern songwriters are a special breed, due in part to a strong history of oral tradition, often rooted in suffering and tragedy.
...
#Kimbrough and Murphy advise songwriters to trust the process that works best for them.
...
#"I didn't realize how spoiled I was growing up to have B.B. King, ?The Meters and Buddy Guy playing down the street from you," Murphy says.

"Judge Murphy, best known as the lead singer for the Marin-based jam band Zero, died Sept. 15 at his home in El Dorado County after a long bout with liver cancer. He was 63.
In recent years, Mr. Murphy sang with his wife, Lauren, in Lansdale Station, a group named after a former railroad stop in San Anselmo. He continued to perform during his illness, and last appeared with Lansdale Station at Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley on Sept. 6, a little more than a week before he died".... read more above

JUDGE MURPHY: SOLID SURVIVOR 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.
...
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.

DON ATERS - Rock & Roll Historian, Photographer, Lecturer, & best friend of charismatic entrepreneur of the counter culture and psychedelia, Chet Helms, weighs in on Lansdale Station ***Read Full Article with photo gallery at the link Below*** Resurrection of Faith - Lansdale Station "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.
...
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. Keep the faith Cheers" Don Aters - 2010 Editor Haight Street Music News www.haightstreetmusicnews.com Fillmore-East.com (artifact/image provider) Music Historian / Photo-Journalist / MLA / Indiana University Holding Together Fanzine (England)

...
Compared to Sandy Denny, Emmy Lou Harris, & Grace Slick, with the passion of Janis Joplin, Lauren is unlike anyone.
...
Lauren Murphy is no stranger to the stage. In fact, she'll tell you it's where she feels most at home. Schooled from the age of 3, Lauren was rigorously trained in dance, theatre, voice, piano, classical theory, and art. By the age of 11, she had already built up a scrap book of awards an adult would be proud of, including nomination for BRLT Best New Coming Actress, competing with Veterans in their 30's & 40's. The daughter of a Louisiana politician, Lauren learned early that 'all the word is a stage'. Her multi-artistic abilities took on a life of their own and by the time she was 17, her many talents had landed boastful accolades: performing at NY's 'Carnegie Hall' along side conductor, John Rutter & the NY Phil Harmonic, a modeling contract w/ Esprit, work w/ MTV Choreographer Frank Hatchet's NY Dance Program, Joe Tremain & his then young dance prodigy instructor Barry Lather (Janet Jackson/Sting/Usher), 2 Tours to Bermuda & Hawaii w/ American All Star Dance Troop, a guest vocal spot w/ the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and numerous other awards in all genre's of the arts. As a young adult, Lauren split her time between the intellectual backdrop of LSU and the streets of New Orleans. The magic of the Big Easy was a force brimming with the full spectrum of humanity. Befriended by street musicians and sidewalk philosophers, Lauren haunted Uptown, The Quarter, Tipitina's, The Maple Leaf, Check Point Charlies, breathing in the essence of the city.
...
Feeling the call of the West, Lauren came to Northern California in the mid -90's, baby in tow. Skilled in Music, Art, Literature, Theatre', & Dance, she moved to the coastal hamlet of Arcata, where she became a sensation in the Folk Rock Band, 'DELPHINIUM BLUE'. A North Country Favorite, the female fronted band played all the notable festivals & radio shows to overflowing college audiences. This is when she met Judge Murphy, her soulmate and the man who would forever change her destiny. She relocated with him to the Bay Area, and formed 'THE HOUSELEVELERS'. A very gifted singer / songwriter /guitarist, she has been heralded by a number of Industry Greats. ' THE HOUSELEVELERS', achieved fame in the late 90's, gigging at notable West Coast Venues like : 'THE MARITIME HALL', 'SWEETWATER', ' OREGON COUNTRY FAIR', THE FAIRFAX FESTIVAL', & 'MYSTIC THEATRE', w/ line-ups including Terry Haggerty ( Sons of Champlain), Vince Littleton (Merl Saunders), Doug Harman (Bela Fleck), and Judge Murphy (ZERO). Lauren also sang vocals aside her husband, Judge, in ZERO from 1998 to 2000.
Following her heart, Lauren divides her time singing, writing, and composing independently w/ her husband, Judge, and other Bay Talents, using words guitar & piano as her mediums. She enjoys her main job as 'Mom', & volunteers in the community when ever she can. Their band, LANSDALE STATION , is a melding of true roots music and a culmination of her vast talent & experiences. A woman of impressive stature, Lauren stands up to the critics where chops & originality live. Her style is varied, her writing ability vast, and her vivacity infectious.
Lauren's 2nd CD, 'MAGNOLIA HEART', recorded, mixed, & mastered @ THE PLANT STUDIOS, Sausalito, Ca., has been described as "triumphant" & a "musical direct hit". Her self produced collaboration with husband Judge Murphy, the eponymous Cd "Lansdale Station" is her most cohesive project to date.
Judge Murphy - Vocals / Producer / Collaborative Writer
...
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".
...
In 2005, Judge began producing the CD, "MAGNOLIA HEART" a body of work written predominantly by wife, Lauren Murphy.
