The rise of the law
Murphy’s Law have grown into a connected and well attuned team ready to meet new musical challenges and new audiences. Loved by their fans in Berlin and elsewhere, standing on the solid foundation of ten years together and rejuvenated by the impulses of the last two, they are about to write a new chapter and are currently working on their next EP.
The origins of what is today one of Berlin‘s best loved folk bands dates back to 2011.
Formed in 2011
When front man Danny O’Connor met fellow Irishman Alan Jackson on St Patrick’s Day.
And then there were 3!
The pair recruited Tobias Gomez on percussion and the trio started playing gigs together.
After a short period of time together the band released their first record entitled “Half Full”
Sara Wegen joined in 2014. Her fiddle playing and distinct vocals are key to the band’s sound today.
As the bands live gigging schedule grew so did it’s members. Stefan Hubsch joined the band on mandola.
MS Delphin tour
The band teamed up with Scottish fiddler Paul Viblanc for a cruise ship tour of Ireland and the UK.
It was time for a second record in summer 2015 and the band released “Full House”
Recorded with musicians from the extended ML family, featuring Danny’s original songs.
The charismatic, audience-engaging front man made a magnificent debut in the world of songwriting and arranging.
Jens Mc Nulty
Jens joined on electric bass to enhance the bands sound as they ventured more into the a folk pop rock mix.
In 2019, Moe Jaksch joined on double bass, a powerful addition to the band’s sound.
Sara welcomed little baby Jonas and will be taking some much needed time out to attend to his every little need!
Patrizia Sieweck joined us on fiddle. She is the most amazing tune player and has a wonderful voice to go with it.
