Click to listen to Migrant's Dance
Recorded in his studio the album features 13 new original tracks in varied styles.
Phil is of course known primarily as a blues performer, & his forays into folk, country & instrumental areas are tinged with his unique way of approaching his music.
The title track 'Migrants Dance' pt 1 & pt2 has been spectacularly successful at live performances, & Phil has enlisted the talents of violinist Nigel MacLean on this & three other tracks.
Rural themes of yesteryear in 'Dreamin' 1930 Blues' & 'Search For Money' fit into the blues zone, alongside the stylistically true blue pieces 'Railyard Rumblin' (one-take-composed on the spot) & 'Big Boyfriend'.
Personal insights & experience permeate 'Hold The Line', 'Field Of Green' & much of the album generally, while 'Bordertowns' laments the poor condition of the mighty Murray River.
This is an album Phil can be proud of as his talents as a songwriter, performer & singer grow to match his already unquestionable ability on guitar.
