The GPO Team!
As part of Grand Pocket Orchestra, the multi-talented Bronwyn Murphy-White knows how to turn heads – off stage and on.
Celina Murphy, 30 Jun 2008
The Terenure, Dublin native continued her love of all things creative with a degree in graphic design in IADT, which she completed last year.
Still putting her design expertise to use with GPO, Bronwyn has designed both the cover for their 3-track EP and the band’s trademark t-shirt (pictured). “It was based on a t-shirt I made [frontman] Paddy, when I stitched the setlist on by hand and then we just kind of continued the theme on.”
This girl certainly has the creative tools to dress to impress. But Bronwyn says she doesn’t pay as much attention to her wardrobe as she used to.
“I shop mostly in Topshop and Penney’s now. I used to spend all my time in charity shops but I had to stop because I ended up with too much, my room was just stuffed full of clothes.”
Presumably, she’s done a big clear out since her bargain hunter days. “No, no. I still have most of it! There’s some stuff I can’t bear to part with.”
Like the nurse’s getup perhaps?
“Yeah, I’ll never be able to give that away.”
Grand Pocket Orchestra play Upstairs, Whelan’s, Dublin on June 27 and Róisín Dubh, Galway on July 1.
