catching up with Anna Murphy & Cellar Darling | May Day

"As promised, I am finally ready to share a new song from my solo project with you"

Mayday (2016) [Official Lyric Video] - YouTube
Published on Aug 12, 2016
**** 'Mayday', along with the extended version of my debut album 'Cellar Darling' (includes 'Mayday' and the Tommy Vetterli remix of the song 'Cellar Darling') will be available SOON on the digital music service of your choice. Both are available NOW at Bandcamp: ****

As promised, I am finally ready to share a new song from my solo project with you:

Mayday is about living in the moment and doing stupid stuff. It is inspired by my constant search for chaos and the consequences of it. Musically it features my most authentic approach so far as well as a perfect band consisting of Marco Jencarelli (guitars), Ivo Henzi (bass) and Merlin Sutter (drums).
It is honest, sarcastic and provocative.

The song was produced by Marco Jencarelli and myself at Soundfarm studios in Lucerne, the artwork is done yet again by me with photography by Merlin Sutter.

The lyric video was produced by myself and Merlin Sutter. Recorded in one take and terribly hungover, that's some real Mayday action right there. I am fully aware that there will be lots of funny screen shots taken after this and I'm ready to face the consequences.

I can't wait to play 'Mayday' live for the very first time in Australia later this month, together with my live band featuring Ivo Henzi, Merlin Sutter and the Rafi Kirder:

26 August 2016: Sydney, Bald Faced Stag
27 August 2016: Melbourne, The Evelyn Hotel |

Anna Murphy legt mit ihrer persönlichen Performance in Maydayeinen Notrufschalter zur Rettung von Lyric-Videos um. Mit einer simplen Intensität fügt sie einer bislang eher gelangweilt wirkenden Ästhetik, Liedtexte möglichst als brandaktuelle Animation zu präsentieren etwas hinzu, das mir bisher unbekannt war...

Anna Murphy, Gorgeous Muse Talks About Her Ex-Band ELUVEITIE, New Band Cellar Darling, And Solo Project !!
スイスが誇る Folk / Melodic Death Metal バンド、ELUVEITIE。ヴァイオリン、バグパイプ、ホイッスル、ハーディー・ガーディーといった伝統楽器を大胆に取り入れ、ケルトの民族音楽とメロデスを見事に融合させた革新的な集団です。
2014年に日本公演も大成功させた、このインターナショナルなメジャーアクトに今年、大事件が勃発しました。2000年代前半から所属していた中心メンバー、ボーカル/ハーディー・ガーディー の Anna Murphy, ギタリスト Ivo Henzi, ドラマー Merlin Sutter が脱退してしまったのです。 ...

Interview: Anna Murphy | Australian Music News | AAA BACKSTAGE (3 August)
Swiss heavy metal goddess Anna Murphy is returning to Australia next month as a solo woman! Her recent departure from Celtic-metal outfit Eulveitie was a huge devastation amongst fans but the ethereal songstress has used it as an opportunity to fully explore her unique and powerful brand of eclectica. We caught up with the hurdy-gurdy superstar to discuss life after Eluveitie, the upcoming mini-tour, and comic book villain obsessions...
A couple of months ago I met up with Anna MurphyIvo Henzi and Merlin Sutter ahead of their last ever show with Eluveitie in Sydney. It was a great chat back then, but ever since I’ve been looking forward to talking to the trio again, to see where their musical path is taking them post-Eluveite. I phoned up Anna last week for what turned out to be another very pleasant chat. Don’t miss them all when they head down to Sydney and Melbourne later this month, it will be two awesome nights of beautiful and heavy music! ...

At a young age of 26, Anna Murphy has pretty much cemented herself as a veteran in the worlds of Folk and Celtic Metal. When she was 16, she left home and joined Eluveitie, originally as their hurdy-gurdy player, a band that has risen to the heights of becoming one of the most recognisable artists in the folk metal genre. On top of that, Murphy has kept herself busy by joining other bands including Frakmundt, godnr.universe and Nucleus Torn as well as becoming a recognised audio engineer and launching a successful solo career...
