Three Wishes for 2023: Singer-songwriter Roisin Murphy | UK News

Singer-songwriter Roisin Murphy said the music industry “deserved the help” it “saved our lives during the pandemic”.

Murphy said on the Sky News Daily podcast that host Niall Paterson asked her and a series of other special guests about their “three wishes” for 2023.

The singer has been releasing music since the mid-90s, first as part of the duo Moloko before embarking on a successful solo career.

She told the podcast: .. all these costs are on you.

“And now, after the pandemic and the energy crisis we are facing, there is the cost of living crisis, plus it is getting more expensive.”

Murphy has released five solo albums and 2015’s Hairless Toys was nominated for a Mercury Music Award. Her latest work Roisin Machine (2020) received critical acclaim. Last year, she made her acting debut in Netflix’s The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself.

From his home in Ibiza, Murphy said most nightclubs had lost their “charm” and needed government help to revive the music and nighttime industry.

“We deserve help in times of crisis,” she told The Daily Podcast.[Music] You saved our lives during the pandemic. I may be exaggerating a bit, but I think it’s true. ”

“A generation that has lost its shared sense of culture”

According to figures released last year by the Night Time Industries Association, 20% of nightclubs have closed since the initial lockdown in March 2020.

“Going to clubs, seeing bands, and not just being on the internet all the time is so healthy for kids,” Murphy said.

“I am really worried about that generation of young people who have gone through three years of their lives without sharing such an experience.

Another of Murphy’s wishes was to see more children spending less time looking at phones and computer screens. The mother of two, she said, worries that her generation has lost its sense of common culture.

“They speak a different language to me. I think we were crazy about something our parents didn’t understand. But I think this is on another level. The culture we grew up in was shared.

“I mean, we were talking about dancing together. I hope my kids can go out and dance with others to share this universal feeling.”
