Jay Murphy of Up Until Now has so far lived his life completely centered and orbiting around music. He comes from a collective past involved in bands with genres of reggae, world beat, rock, hip hop, funk, electro-pop,and even heavy metal. With this project, he distills the pure essence in music that has always driven him, and channels it into electronic dance music with the sole purpose of making bodies move. When you get talent of this type with huge broad experience, and focus it into one vision, you best believe that it burns like a laser.
Since playing his first show in early 2010, Up Until Now has performed across the country from Portland, OR to Jacksonville, FL, from New York City to Austin, TX. He has been blessed to share the stage with such acts as Snoop Dogg, STS9, Big Gigantic, The New Deal, Bonobo, Two Fresh, and Emancipator just to name a few. In the summer of 2011 he was featured at some of the top music festivals in the country such as Camp Bisco X, Regeneration Music and Arts Festival, and Blackwater Music Festival. With the momentum Up Until Now has built in 2011, 2012 is sure to be a huge year.
