Chet Faker

Chet Faker - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

Australian musician Nicholas Murphy, a.k.a. Chet Faker, first came to our attention in 2011 when he released his great cover of Blackstreet's "No Diggity." A year later, he put out a dreamy EP called Thinking in Textures, and this year sees the release of his full-length debut, Built on Glass. The new album has a chill, rhythm and blues vibe with some electronics thrown into the mix, but when he stopped by Studio A it was just him and a piano. I also got a chance to talk with Nicholas about the making of the new album for this episode of FUV Live.
