Willie Murphy

Willie Murphy

Willie Murphy has been writing, performing, recording and producing Blues/R&B music for over 30 years. His 1969 collaboration with folk/blues legend "Spider" John Koerner, "Running, Jumping, Standing Still," is still acclaimed as an all-time folk/blues classic. Throughout the 70s and into the 80s, Willie and the Bees defined live R&B/soul music. The band was famous for their unique blending of blues, R&B, jazz, funk, reggae and rock into an electric and eclectic sound that still defies categorization to this day.

Blues legend Willie Murphy is acclaimed as one of the all time greats. He was inducted into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame along with Bob Dylan and Prince. Murphy started jamming in the mid 1960s with "Spider" John Koerner, produced Bonnie Raitt's debut album in the 1970s and plotted an eclectic course throughout the 1980s with his band Willie and the Bees.
