Chet Faker Biography

Murphy decided to play under a stage name after people came to his shows thinking he was a different and already established musician named Nick Murphy. He settled on the name Chet Faker as an homage to Chet Baker: "I listened to a lot of jazz and I was a big fan of ... the way he sang, when he moved into mainstream singing. He had this really fragile vocal style—this really, broken, close-up and intimate style. The name is kind of just an ode to Chet Baker and the mood of music he used to play—something I would like to at least pay homage to in my own music." Other influences he has cited include Bob Dylan, as well as his mother's Motown albums and his father's "chilled out Ibiza CDs".

He first rose to prominence after his cover of Blackstreet's "No Diggity" went viral online, reaching number one on the Hypemachine chart in May 2011. He released his first EP, Thinking in Textures, on 22 March 2012 to positive reviews, being described as "wonderfully loungey" and praised for its ability to "mix subtlety with impressive beauty". The EP was also popular with fans, with its second single, "I'm Into You", landing at number 24 on radio station Triple J's Hottest 100 of 2012.

Faker has worked with several other artists since the release of his debut EP, including collaborations with Flume and remixes of songs by MS MR and The Temper Trap. He was a featured vocalist on Say Lou Lou's "Fool of Me", which was named Best New Track by Pitchfork in May 2013.

On 12 August 2013, Faker released a new single, "Melt", featuring American vocalist Kilo Kish. In November 2013, Flume and Faker released an EP, titled Lockjaw. Faker's debut studio album, Built on Glass, was released on 11 April 2014, preceded by the release of its lead single, "Talk Is Cheap", and its accompanying music video on 11 February 2014. The album debuted at number one on the ARIA Charts.

In January 2015, it was announced that Faker would perform at the Boston Calling Music Festival in May 2015. Later that month, "Talk Is Cheap" was named the number one song in the 2014 Triple J Hottest 100 countdown, while two of his other singles, "Gold" and "1998", also reached the top ten, placing at number 7 and 8 respectively. In June, Faker released a new single titled "Bend", a previously unreleased track intended for Built on Glass. It was promoted by his Australian Built on Live tour in October.

Faker released a new EP, Work, a collaboration with London-based DJ Marcus Marr on 4 December 2015.
