Phil is a solo singer / songwriter / guitarist from London. He has gigged around the Capital and the Midlands and has released several CDs, which he has written, recorded, played and produced himself. In 2004 he had a number 2 hit single with the band 4-4-2 and appeared on CD:UK and TOP OF THE POPS. Phil's songs are left-of-centre acoustic pop/rock/folk, but he is about as far as you can get from the typical shoegazing, acoustic guitar wielding 'singer/songwriter'. His songs are funny, dark, haunting but always original – no 'it's about whatever you want it to be about' generic lyrics here. He is inspired in equal parts by classic songwriters such as Richard Thompson and Elvis Costello, and punk performers like John Otway and Wreckless Eric. Accepted in folk clubs for his songwriting skills, yet welcome in rock clubs for his energetic performance, he is a true original.
These things have been said about Phil: "Phil has mastered the art of writing a glorious and memorable pop song" Rob Dix, Drowned in Sound "I really liked the songs" John Otway, top ten artist
