Surnames is the music project of Liam Anastasia-Murphy. Aftering cutting his teeth on the indie folk scene of Richmond, Virginia, he moved back home to Massachusetts and started Surnames out of his bedroom in 2019. Surnames released two EPs in 2020 - falling squarely into jean jacket, Fender-guitar indie rock. Three new singles were released in 2022 that, while still remaining in the indie sphere, started to showcase a burgeoning fascination with electronic production and sampling. Anastasia-Murphy strives to write music that is honest in its feeling and poetic in its delivery. His music has been streamed over a quarter of a million times across platforms, added to and featured on thousands of playlists (including Spotify’s “Fresh Finds Indie”), and used in a Netflix show.
