Daron Murphy is a film composer and musician, based in Brooklyn, NY.
He composed musical scores for the feature-length documentary films, The End of America and MoveOn: The Movie. In 2007 he scored the short film, Raving, directed by Julia Stiles and starring Zooey Deschanel.
Murphy is also well known for his work as a guitarist and songwriter with the bluesy retro-soul rock group, The Little Death, whose members feature wife Laura Dawn and electronic music icon Moby. He toured Europe with Moby, as his guitar player, in 2005.
From 1992 until 1995, Murphy was the primary songwriter, singer, and guitarist (along with bass player Jonny Farrow and late drummer Chris Brown), for indie rock band Philco Bendyx.
In 1998, Murphy formed The Sixes, a short lived 60s garage-style dance/rock ensemble. In 2000, Murphy co-founded Rene Risque and the Art Lovers, with primary songwriter and vocalist Andy Boose—a cabaret/rock/disco project in which each member of the band assumed the identity of a sleazy eurotrash decadent. Murphy's assumed name in the group was Dolce Fino.
Around the same time, Murphy was wed to singer and political activist Laura Dawn.
