ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Beazley Phillips Band bring raucous, driving piano-rock together with sharp and personal lyrics and indie folk influenced harmonies.

The Groups’ three-man lineup breaks the rules of the guitar-based, four piece rock-n-roll band and sticks to a paired-down sound of bass, drums, blues-based rock piano.

Singer, songwriter and pianist Michael Beazley Phillips writes from a place close to the heart, ranging from intense ballads to high energy rock. Beazley left the south to play the blues. While studying with Chicago cultural icon, Erwin Helfer, he worked the blues circuit playing with many of Chicago’s legendary, working blues players. After a gig at the Chicago International Blues Fest in 2003, he left the blues scene to begin work with his own, more rock-influenced trio. Philadelphia native Pete Nocito joined the touring band in 2006 and is featured on vocals, drums as well as contributing songs for their newest record. Returning bassist, EG McDaniel, son of legendary Ink Spots guitarist, Floyd McDaniel, lays down the rhythmic backbone of the Chicago sound combined with energetic, percussive rock!

Bring the Angels Down is the groups’ second album of original material and consists of piano-rock compositions with clear influences of blues, gospel and indie folk harmonies in a retro classic-rock package; as one reviewer wrote, Beazley definitely listened to his parents 1970’s record collection.

Jeff Goeke

Great follow up, Beazley!
Czar...HUGE opener just like Freedom...sets the tone for the album pretty well. Kind of like Elton John’s Empty Sky opener or a Turnstiles opener. Love it.

Nine Feet...This is the piano hook of all the songs that sticks in my head after a couple listens. Would love to hear this one live.

Dreaming of Kate...Probably my favorite from the song after the few days I’ve had it. Cool mellow sound, your piano seems like something Ben Folds will be stealing at some point.

I Would...Pure Beazley raw piano sound. Great energy.

Spellbound...interesting rhythm, nice tempo change after the first 4 songs.

Fire Song...my prediction...this song will be used to close retreats and send people on their way energized.

Solid...can’t wait to listen to this in the car on a long road trip, sun setting.

Vera...the most traditional “rock and roll song” on the album...Love the drums.

Stray Dog...Another good driving song. It sounds like he layered 4 pianos at some points...was that really one piano track?? I would love to see this one live too.
