Goodbye Chet Faker, Hello Nick Murphy: Artist Will No Longer Release Music Under His Stage Name

Chet Faker is no more. But don’t worry – there will still be more music.

The artist formerly known as Chet Faker announced yesterday via Facebook that he is ditching his alias to release music under his real name, Nick Murphy, in the future.

Though his history as Chet has been a long one – he wrote that “its been half a decade since I started releasing music as Chet Faker” – everyone moves into different stages of their lives, and their careers, eventually. We can only imagine that this “evolution” of Nick’s career will result in more magical tunes. The question that stands now is whether or not his musical style will remain the same.

Thanks for the mems, Chet. We’re excited to see what will come next as Nick.
