released June 17, 2016
Bournemouth based singer-songwriter Philip John, sets out to make his music full of energy, sincerity, and power. His influences range from Jeff Buckley to Nick Drake; Soundgarden to The Police, and everywhere in between.
He presents his newest EP “Sung for Ghosts”, which endeavours to capture his live sound in it’s most raw and charismatic form. Recording with just two microphones in a room, it’s one voice, one acoustic guitar, played totally live in single takes.
He’s a lifelong musician, and has gigged all around the country, and recorded in some top studios with countless artists, bands, and producers over the years. However he was predominantly playing the backbone role of the bass guitarist in these endeavours, whilst quietly working on his own music on the side. But now with this body of work, he steps out into the singer-songwriter role pursuing his own music.
“(Philip’s) voice is gold and should definitely play more acoustic shows”.
- Dave McPherson (Inme)
"The pure power of his vocal range combined with his catchy rhythms and unique style make the 'Sung for Ghosts EP' a must-have."
- Hidden Herd.
“Philip’s skilful guitar work and passionately delivered tunes really hit the mark”
- Rock Regeneration.
“Philip is a natural-born performer from the moment he stepped onto the stage. (He has) an impressive vocal range and a very husky campfire voice. (He) gave a stellar performance”
