Press Release


Samantha Murphy, a.k.a. “The Highway Girl”, Joins the Daisy Rock Family!


Daisy Rock Girl Guitars proudly welcomes singer-songwriter Samantha Murphy to the artist roster. This extremely talented artist comes from musical parents and has been performing professionally since she was six years old.  She has since played with Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Michael McDonald, Five for Fighting, and Kylie Minogue, to name a few.

Murphy has successfully established herself not only as a singer-songwriter, but as THE place to go to hear other great singer-songwriters. With her popular show “The Highway Girl” that she created in 2005, Murphy features a different artist from a different city and venue each week as she is touring. Some past guests include Juliette Lewis, Aimee Mann, Martha Wainwright, Elvis Perkins, Cary Brothers, Juliana Hatfield, and Inara George.

Murphy plays a Stardust Retro-H De-Luxe in Sea Foam Green. She was so excited to receive her guitar because she loved it so much, and couldn’t wait to play it!  “I love that Samantha is bringing music to people everywhere because that’s what we strive to do with our guitars” said Tish Ciravolo, Founder and President of Daisy Rock Girl Guitars.

Samantha Murphy’s debut album Somewhere Between Starving & Stardom in 2005 received glowing reviews—“A perfect pop record”, says Pure Music’s Michael Ross, who also nominated the album for Village Voice’s esteemed Pazz & Jop Poll.
