As recently intimated on social media, the musician Chet Faker has forgone his alias and will now write, produce, record and perform under his real name, Nick Murphy – symbolising a significant musical evolution for the artist.
Murphy’s achievements as Chet Faker are great and varied. His critically acclaimed debut album ‘Built On Glass’ was a commercial success upon its release in spring 2014, reaching platinum sales status. BBC Radio 1 have consistently supported both his solo releases and his recent collabs with Marcus Marr. He’s a serious player internationally, selling out headline tours and playing major festivals throughout Europe, Asia and North America including main sets at Glastonbury, Primavera Sound, Coachella and more.
