ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Chosen as album of the week by Robert Elms at BBC RADIO LONDON and featured in the Staff Picks section on CD baby.

David Philips is the epitome of the independent artist. His debut solo album "Heal yourself alone" was written, performed, produced, recorded, engineered and released by himself (featuring Caspar St Charles on drums/flute and Abel Boquera on keys).
The majority of the album was recorded in a spare room in a flat in Barcelona, Spain and only the mastering was handed over to someone else (Dave Locke at JP Masters U.S.) The albums style is a mix of Americana, Blues and Acoustic Rock evoking artists such as Ryan Adams, Neil Young and Bob Dylan, but it is his diverse musical career that seems to lend something else to his music, not just a cut and paste copy of his influences.

Philips (real name Dave Wilkinson) was born and raised in the UK and moved to Barcelona, Spain at the age of 24. He is known as an extremely versatile musician, playing in many different styles spanning Blues, Jazz, Soul, Rock and Pop and has released records worldwide with various formations and indie labels. His talents as a guitar sideman have been called upon by legends and "names" in the world of Blues, Soul and Jazz such as Brian Jackson (Gil Scott-Heron, Kool and the Gang), George Braith (Blue Note Records), Charlie Wood (Albert King), Alvin Youngblood Hart, Hook Herrera (Richie Sambora, Gvt Mule) and Geoff Young (Sting, Steely Dan.) As a composer David has had work commissioned for TV by companies including Volkswagon, Honda and Gas Natural (Spain)

But it wasn't until around 2005 that Philips discovered his talent for singing and writing and his love for the acoustic guitar. He began to pen original songs which later would become part of his debut solo album released in July 2010 titled "Heal yourself alone" - finally allowing his solo voice to come to the forefront, as a singer songwriter, multi instrumentalist, producer and story teller.

Honest
Honest and natural songs, production and performance. Extremely easy to listen to and yet full of hidden nuances both musically and lyrically. Fantastic album.
