Nick Murphy, formerly known as Chet Faker, took to https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FChetfaker%2Fposts%2F1146758122028801&width=500” target=”_blank”>Facebook earlier today to explain to the world-and to himself-the reason why he ditched his nom de plume.
His announcement last September shook the Australian music scene when he told the world that her will no longer be using Chet Faker as his stage name. I think a little bit in all of us died as we started to wonder if we’d ever see his unique style of music again.
“A lot of you are probably wondering why the fuck I changed my name,” Murphy said.
“Me too, sometimes. A lot of things changed in my life, including me. I learnt and relearnt a lot about myself. It felt like I needed to make that a thing for everyone.…”
Before now, all we knew about his name change was the impending evolution of his music. The change in alias was simply to bring the audience into this change and experience a new world with the soulful artist.
He hopes that this new name will bring about a whole new vibe and allow for the immortalization of his old music style made under Chet Faker.
“So I’m not fighting preconceptions and everyone can start the evolution with me,” Murphy stated.
“The only important thing is that it feels new and inspired to me, and I’d like to think that’s all that matters to you as well.”
His first song ‘Fear Less’ dropped earlier this September and we can’t wait to see what this new journey brings to the music world.
