John Murphy

Born on March 4, 1965 in Liverpool, England, self-taught British film composing maestro John Murphy took his first career steps in the early 1990s and made a name for himself with the 1992 comedy, Leon the Pig Farmer. The movie marked the beginning of a fruitful partnership with OMD member David Hughes and in 1994 the pair joined forces for a trio of movie soundtracks: Beyond Bedlam, A Feast at Midnight and Dinner in Purgatory. John Murphy continued to score films throughout the 1990s, composing the soundtrack for Welsh horror Darklands (1996) and took his career up a notch in 1998 when he collaborated with Guy Ritchie on crime comedy caper Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, later working on Snatch (2000). At the turn of the new millennium, John Murphy collaborated with renowned Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle for Vacuuming Completely Nude in Paradise and Strumpet, also working on the director's 2004 movie Millions (2004) and 2007's Sunshine. He brought Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's post-apocalyptic gem 28 Weeks Later to life through his signature post-rock and a varied tapestry of electroacoustic sound in 2007 and in 2009 turned his composing talents to the remake of the 1972 stomach-churning revenge horror The Last House on the Left. Alongside his movie work, John Murphy has also composed for TV shows and documentaries, including episodes of Dispatches and Frontline. In 2021, he channeled brawny high-voltage rock for the soundtrack to James Gunn's The Suicide Squad.
