Matthew the Oxx reviews and contacts
'It is as if each song is
lapping over your feet as you stand watching the sea receding from the
shoreline' Leah Parker-Turnock - FATEA 'At the heart of this
record is what I would describe as a classic folk-singer's voice,
direct, forthright, clear and earthy.' Greag Mac a'tSaoir - R2 Magazine 'That'll knock your socks off, even if you're not wearing any!' Max Reinhardt - BBC Radio 3's LATE JUNCTION 'The whole album is rather beautiful' Cerys Matthews - BBC6 'This, I really like' Steve Lamacq - BBC6 'simply mind boggling - poetry of the finest order' JP - Acoustic Magazine 'You could write a thesis on the first track' Dai Jeffries - Folking.com 'brings to mind a scene of incredible vastness, a space which can never be filled' Nathan Roach - Subba-Cultcha 'Intriguingly Cohenesque meditations on death in passionate poetic language' - Froots Magazine 'Unforgettable poetic narrative through the heights and depths of love' Dave Clark - AMERICANA UK 'évocations poétiques et des métaphores douces qui emportent' - Deb Cukier - PAUSE MUSICALE

Richie Phillips is a musician from London. The best way to describe his music is that it comes in two parts. The main is a singer songwriterstyle, influenced by the likes of Dylan, Lou Reed & Leonard Cohen. With a kinda melancholy sound and lyrics about himself, life and the people he meets. The second part is an experimental side, using the electric guitar to try and create a minimalist, avant-garde sound using consonance and dissonance tones. With a great love of just musicand it’s many styles he tries take something away from all he hears, inturn hoping to let his music to be able to go anywhere and anystyle.
Recently Richie has just self-released his self-recorded debut album The Richie. An album about honesty, truth, loneliness, addiction, escapism, religion, a battle within of anger, depression and the search for love. Ultimately finding a first love which is not mutual, the dealing of new emotions, along with it’s regrets and the coming to termswith whats been. http://richiephillips.net
