Lake Highlands’ native Marlhy Murphy will be youngest performer at Austin’s SXSW

marhley Little Marlhy Murphy, whom I most recently saw about three years ago playing Tiny Tim at the Dallas Theater Center‘s production of “A Christmas Carol”, is blossoming into a mini rock star.

Yes, her age is now in the double digits — 10.

This prepubescent status hasn’t stalled progress when it comes to performing. To date, her resume (courtesy of a recent press release) includes:

Opening with her band We’re Not Dudes for The Polyphonic Spree and Sarah Jaffe … Traveling with her Led Zeppelin cover band to open up new School of Rock locations … Performing with industry legends such as Todd Lewis of the Toadies. She’s the drummer in a national Target ad, a regular performer on the AOL/Emmy award winning YouTube series, Kid’s React and a regular presence in local Dallas theater. She’s been featured in Tom Tom Magazine, and many news stories including Dallas Morning News, WB33 and the Advocate. (Hey, thanks for noticing!)

Marlhy’s newest band, Pretty Little Demons, is a two-piece ensemble that will release its first EP, made with the help of Kickstarter, Thursday.

And if you are headed to South by Southwest in Austin next month, Look for the Little Demons in the line up.
