Murdock came to The Adarna at the time of the release of the first EP through a Craigslist ad. He is considered, not only our local Italian-stallion but, a founding member of the band. He earned his degree at State University of New York College at Fredonia in Performance and Music Business. In his spare time, Murdock can be seen covered in grease as he is an amateur mechanic with a passion for vintage vehicles and motorcycles. He has been instrumental in making The Adarna's tour bus, Wendy, come to fruition and is the backbone of The Adarna.
Murdock also performs in the Seattle band, Polly Slanderous. He resides in Seattle and owns his own audiovisual design and structuring company.
