Phil Barlow, Sheoak Shack, Sunday

Phil Barlow is an emerging solo artist from Brisbane. He has recently released an EP, Shades of Grey, featuring his honest and expressive lyrics over mellow indie acoustic rhythms.

This new singer / songwriter / guitarist has a range of influences including Led Zeppelin, Mummford and Sons, Bob Marley, BB King, John Butler Trio and Powderfinger. His musical style can best be categorised as indie rock with flavours of reggae and blues.

Phil’s debut album is currently in production for release in late 2012. Fans can look forward to a different side of his music with full band tracks that will have them rocking.

With plans to tour the east coast from August to December, there is no doubt that Phil Barlow has only just begun his musical journey. ‘Music to me is a fluid art,’ says Phil. ‘It’s continually evolving through time as influences, change and emotions grow and fade. I enjoy soothing acoustic tunes to progressive rock and powerful lyrics. Moving people either emotionally or with stomping feet, it’s music that keeps my soul in its seat.’See Phil at the Sheoak Shack this Sunday.
