In The Blood - 2011
Recorded at Noonah Studios in Sunbury, Vic. Mixed and mastered at Cloud Studios in Wyong, this long overdue album contains my latest originals, and, in contrast to my other recordings, songs written by artists who have inspired me over the years.
"Phil Edgeley's album
- In the Blood, is one of the best I have heard in years, a true artist
and exceptional all round entertainer"
Then And Now - 2007
Recorded at Point Studios on the Central Coast. A crew of top-flight musicians ably abets Phil: Mick King (Guitar), Christian Marsh (Blues & chromatic harmonica), Murray Campbell (Djembe, Moroccan talking drum and percussion) and Paul Rutter again steps up on both fretted & fretless bass guitar duties. Producer Roni Francois adds his multi-instrumentalist talents to the mix via drums, bass guitar piano and percussion to give a more textured, refined backdrop to the songs.
This Life - 2005
Recorded at RAMROD studio in Sydney. Featuring Paul Rutter on fretless bass and Tony Keep on drums to compliment Phil's passionate guitar playing and vocals, this CD is raw, earthy and real with songs that make you think as well as tap your feet to. The freshness and honesty of Phil's original songs makes for compelling listening.
|Contact and Bookings
Until a couple of years ago, Trudy Edgeley had been
quite content to manage English bluesman husband Phil's career, so all
I can say is thank goodness that she took those cajon lessons on the sly
and suggested a jam one night after one of Phil's national tours. Not
only did he find the percussionist of his dreams, but also a truly sublime
singer-songwriter whose music brought elements of gospel, work song, Pacific
Islander, and Indigenous melodies and rhythms to mix and match Phil's
love affair with the Mississippi Delta blues of the '30s through '50s,
with a dash of British traditional folk. They write separately, with Phil
bringing nine to Trudy's three songs to the table, with Muddy Waters'
"Can't Be Satisfied" and Curtis Mayfield's "People Get
Ready", the latter sung by Trudy, making up the baker's dozen plus
one, so Oneplusoneequalsthree is still pretty acoustic Delta blues-heavy,
and the contrast when Trudy steps forward adds another really powerful
layer to an amiable and, on the quiet, powerful collection.
On their latest release : "One Plus One Equals
Three", Phil and Trudy Edgeley bring it all back home- from dust-blown
worksongs to gospel-tinged country blues they tell of universal experience
at the same time deeply rooted in their own cultural understanding.
I listen to the latest tasty
offering from Phil Edgeley and Trudy Edgeley titled oneplusoneequalsthree
and am transported along with them on one of their numerous treks around
this fantastic country without the physical opportunity to do so. As I
hear the marvellous word, sounds and culture oozing from this CD I can
only imagine what the audiences Phil and Trudy have entertained from around
the world have felt.The stories, the accents, the sounds, the music
their curiosity must be off the charts to sample more of these two exceptional
musicians, wordsmiths and story tellers and a little more of our very
diverse lands. Great ambassadors!
CD Review of "In the Blood"
Born in the UK, Phil Edgeley now calls Ettalong
Beach, NSW, Australia home. Looking out of my window at the snow falling
and the slush rapidly freezing, I cant help but feel a little jealous;
though listening to In The Blood its obvious the sunshine
suits his music. He plays a form of acoustic blues, which accommodates
an overt folk influence. Indeed, an early highlight of the set is his
cover of Richard Thompsons Beeswing and his take on
Dylans Girl of the North Country is just as effective.
CD Review of "Then and Now"
Phil is an ex-pat Pom who’s been living
for some years in the Newcastle (NSW) area. I've seen his name on various
festival lineups (Newcastle, Berry) but I'd never listened to him till
now. My loss, because boy, he sure makes some beautiful music.
