Pharlon’s funk and soul infused songwriting is a potent brew, an intoxicant for the aural senses. And that’s as it should be. With music, Pharlon is attempting to share the artist’s view with the listener. Says Pharlon, “Music makes time stand still for me,” says Pharlon. “When all the commotion of the world is zooming by, music makes my time in space pause.” And that is the gift of Pharlon to the listener – a mesmerizing break with the laws of space-time. And great entertainment.
Heart and Soul
Some music is real. And some is just artificial. And it all depends on the source. If an artist is just cranking out shallow, cookie-cutter songs whose source is in vapid pop music theory rather than the pure marrow of the human spirit, the result is aural junk food. But if it comes truly from within, with an honest opening up of the self, the result is aural bliss. “Music should be made from the heart and soul,” according to Pharlon. “It should be created from within, not from what you think should be made to fit in to cooperate American radio.”
And the result of true, personal songwriting is originality, the key to great music. Pharlon speaks from a distinct world view, fueled by individual ideas. It’s the key to growth in the world of music as well as artistic and career success. “I truly feel that originality is the key to real success and longevity in this industry.” Pharlon is an artist with staying power, indeed.
The Artist at Work
In addition to Pharlon’s own music, this artist produces others’ music. Pharlon owns a recording studio and is busy recording several other area musicians. In addition, Pharlon’s sophomore CD will be hitting the streets soon. The debut was entitled “Unkle Bangs Funk Collection,” a compilation of works from 1995 to 2006. Ultimately, music, for Pharlon, is more than entertainment. It’s setting an example for the next generation. “We need to pull the creativity out of children and set an example of how to create from within so that we avoid having an industry filled with zombies, unable to reach inside themselves and the universe for true creativity.”
