First emerging from the British punk and rock underground in the late 70s, Murphy (along with bandmates Daniel Ash, David J and Kevin Haskins) fronted the groundbreaking iconic rock band Bauhaus which spawned four iconoclastic and ultra- seminal albums as well as keystone singles “She's In Parties,” "Silent Hedges,” and, of course, "Bela Lugosi’s Dead" before disbanding in 1983. Murphy launched a successful solo career that has yielded ten solo albums so far, including his latest LION, released in 2014.
Jill Tracy is a San Francisco-based singer/pianist, storyteller, and “sonic archeologist” who has garnered multiple awards and a passionate following for her beautifully haunting, cinematic music, sophisticated lyrics, old-world glamour—and curious passion for strange tales.
Hailed a “femme fatale for the thinking man” by the San Francisco Chronicle, Jill Tracy was described by NPR’s All Things Considered as “utterly intriguing, transporting you into a magical world solely of her creation.” LA Weekly has deemed her “the cult darling of the Underworld.”
Her music has appeared on film and television, including Showtime’s Dexter, CBS hit Navy NCIS, and the motion picture Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. She has collaborated and performed with music legends such as Steven Severin (Siouxsie and the Banshees,) David J (Bauhaus,) Jello Biafra, and famed author Lemony Snicket.
With her affinity for odd history tales and unexpected inspirations, Jill Tracy is known for traveling to unusual locales to research and compose spontaneous music. She has conjured music in decrepit gardens, cemeteries, murderous mansions, abandoned asylums, ancient redwoods, and haunted castles.
Jill Tracy is the first musician in history to receive a grant from the renowned Mütter Museum of medical oddities in Philadelphia. She spent nights alone composing music amidst the Mütter’s vast collection of skeletons and specimens—which include renowned “Siamese Twins” Chang and Eng, Einstein’s brain, Harry Eastlack “The Ossified Man,” and The Mermaid Baby.
She was invited by San Francisco’s Presidio Trust to research its archives and tour abandoned buildings with old records of supernatural occurrence. She interviewed over 50 Presidio employees revealing their first-hand ghostly encounters spanning decades. This became her stage show “Legends of the Presidio Ghosts,” which premiered in the famed Presidio Officers Club Ballroom, featuring music composed on-site inspired her discoveries.
She is currently in the middle of an another unprecedented project—a musical excavation of mysterious Lily Dale, the famed private town of mediums and Spiritualists in upstate New York. She is recording her singular piano music channeled at night inside the original 1883 auditorium, site of séances and spirit communication services for over a century. She has captured field recordings from the mystical Leolyn Woods to chilling nighttime rainstorms to create an authentic, never-before-heard sonic journey into this strange, little town that talks to the dead…
The “Godfather of Goth” and founder of the legendary English post-punk band Bauhaus comes to San Francisco for a unique career spanning 16 nights through January and February, performing legendary albums in their entirety from throughout his career, in an internationally exclusive event for The Chapel.
