Mike Murphy, or Murph, is the founder and creator of Studio Talk. Murph’s goal is to help artists and managers build a foundation for their careers so they can take their passion for music and turn it into a full-time endeavor.

No stranger to the music business, Murph has spent the last 15 years as a personal manager, industry executive, and entrepreneur where he’s worked for companies like Def Jam, Universal Motown, Vevo, Sony, and his company, The CKMJ Group. In addition to recently creating Studio Talk, Murph also worked at the ad agency Translation where he helped lead marketing campaigns for Beats, Reebok, and HBO.

In creating “How To Get Playlisted in 30 Days”, Studio Talk’s online course, Murph set out to create something that showed artists and managers how to find and build an audience, get shows, get press, and ultimately get playlisted on major streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music.
