Phillip Foxley is a multi-genre songwriter, guitarist and music producer. He writes Blues, Rock, Punk and Piano/Acoustic music from his home studio in North Wales, UK.

With influences like Buzzcocks, The Clash, Fleetwood Mac, David Gilmour, Mick Ronson and Leslie West, Foxley has now released his own debut album entitled “I’ll Try ‘Till I Die”, an eclectic collection of original blistering blues rock guitar and soft acoustic and piano tracks written over the years. Foxley says “Every track on this album means so much and every note is from my very soul”.

This album is like my musical life story. It’s also a ‘big’ album in that there are over twenty tracks on it already and, because I don’t intend to release any more albums, I just keep adding tracks to it as they are released.

If you’ve never heard of Phillip Foxley then you should seek out his music, turn up the volume and zone out. It reflects the maturity so loved and appreciated in the great blues rock players. His song collection has all the right stuff; edgy blues to classically styled rock to soft acoustic and piano tunes. It’s like listening to three generations of blues-rock on one album”.

You might be asking yourself “what exactly is ‘Brit Pop’?” like I did when I first found myself on Phillip Foxley’s On The House Artist Page. Is it the sound of McFly? JLS? One Direction? The happy and soppy boyband style of music is non- existent here thankfully, instead the expectations I had are shattered, leaving me delightfully surprised with the emotional passion in the first acoustic track found on Spotify.
The first track to be suggested is ‘It’s Up To Us!’ which toys with melancholic tones both instrumentally and vocally. It’s captivating from the get go, like being told a guy-wrenching story that plucks the strings of your heart. North Walian artist, Phillip Foxley displays unreal vocal talent with the ability to range the vocals to drive the veracity and intensity of the track. It’s the same in “I Don’t Want To Go!,” where the low voice feels descendent of Viking chants, and it just goes to show the difference and variety that Phillip Foxley can achieve with work. A real treat, however, was the two different versions of ‘Promises’ – you have the relaxation of a piano instrumental on one side, and in another version, it’s a real British folk punk-slash-hip-hop ballad. It sounds like an odd combination, but the track moves from one genre to the other quite swiftly, and you barely notice until you’re a minute in and wondering to yourself if the track changed without you noticing.(Side note, North Walians don’t have that Welsh twang when they sing?!)

I’ve just checked out Phillip Foxleys latest offering “I Don’t Wanna Go” and it kicks in with a friggin’ hymn! This old English pace and melody evolves into a soft pop track with early 90s style vocals and gentle accompanying guitarwork to further emphasise the vocals. A stylised piece made for a certain of listener.

This track has some clear foundational brit pop influences, but for me, the atmosphere of the tracks have a real early prog rock affinity, given the way the track progresses and the use of playful soundscapes. A raw and brave release that is well worth a listen.
