Phil Whiteley has a certain way with songwriting that is both widely accessible & distinctly unique. This new album was well worth the wait.
The strength & beauty is phenomenal, particularly considering there isn’t a single lyric or vocal part. A masterful composer & supremely skillful musician.
The artist’s voice, the vibrant energy of the instrumentation, the honesty – essential elements that make this an easy to enjoy, impressive new collection.
The band have crafted this collection with absolute consideration & skill, and not at the cost of that crucial creative freedom that makes it so unique.
You need to take these songs as your own for the full effect, to appreciate the creativity & expression. His writing really lifts him away from the crowd.
The speed at which Marcus delivers these stories is immense. A creatively intelligent, deeply expressive artist – well worth paying attention to.
Full to the brim with heartfelt songwriting & seemingly effortless musicianship that is a pleasure to listen to. Well worth exploring.
Full & vibrant soundscapes, instrumentally loaded & emotionally joyful, featuring some notably reflective lyrics about life & love.
