Performing under the Moniker Chet Faker, Nick Murphy has fast built a reputation as one of the most vivid story tellers. Music Feeds caught up with Faker for a quick chat while in town for Splendour In The Grass.
Though his self released EP was a smashing success, Faker’s interpretation of Blackstreets No Diggity is what brought him to the attention of the mainstream. We chat about the implications of this, and his approach to covering songs in the future. Faker plans on sticking to his current run of original material, though the idea is never off the table.
Currently working on his full length album, Chet unveils that the release will be darker, more layered than anything he’s done previously.
Though the heavens had opened up during the interview, obviously the gods themselves are demanding more information on the album. Though we’re looking for a 2013 release.
