Bill Murphy has been a major market air talent for over 20 years. His contributions and endeavors in Rock radio have given him an "earwitness" account of the development of the music industry over the past three decades. In addition to numerous stints in Classic Rock both in Miami FL and Dallas TX, he got to be part of groundbreaking formats like the first all-compact disc WGTR-FM, cutting edge KDGE in Dallas which was among the very first crop of Alternative Rock outfits in the USA and the AAA/Adult Alternative WSHE, in the mid 90s. Bill recalls, "All of these opportunities gave me an up close look at the changes in the business. They also had major influences on me creatively. I'm noticing alot of my personal work lately has some of that mellow 1996 smooth, soothing sound....I don't know if that's good or bad! Ha!"

Recently Bill has peen passing on his radio production skills teaching Pro Tools classes at The Connecticut School of Broadcasting in Ft. Lauderdale. He's also the Public Address Announcer for the NHL's Florida Panthers' home games. He remains active on the South Florida radio waves doing voiceovers and commercials for several local clients.

The emphasis turned solidly to Murphonics in 2004 when Bill designed and constructed (with some help from friends) an over-the-top home studio in the second bedroom of his Ft. Lauderdale townhome. "I spent more than three months carefully building and designing it, making changes as I went. The acoustic treatment is influenced by a "rough average" of all of the scientific do's and dont's I researched over the past couple of years. There is some math involved, but it's not hysterical. The room sounds and feels great and that's all that matters. The main thing was coming up with a room I would look forward to working in every day"

Bill regularly performs with Nobody's Fault, a classic rock cover band in Ft. Lauderdale. Visit www.nobodysfault.com for more info and future dates. He is available for jingle singing, voiceover work and audio production assistance. Let Bill Murphy help consult you in the development of your audio project, web audio, radio commercial, songwriting demo, vocal overdub, sound design, live application, radio or tv jingle, music bed, or full album production.
