Phil Edgeley

Phil is an English Folk/Blues based acoustic guitar player and singer/songwriter with influences ranging from Robert Johnson, Fred McDowell and Skip James to contemporary artists such as Chris Whitley, Bob Brozman, Harry Manx and Australian blues legends, Jeff Lang and Phil Manning.
His original songs draw on all of these influences and more, dealing with multi-facets of his own life. Phil's guitar techniques include fingerstyle,Phill various open-tunings and slide playing on both conventional, Resophonic and Weissenborn style guitars.
Phil started playing in the local pub in his home town, moving on to the Northern Beaches of Sydney including a spot at the inaugural Manly Folk Festival, then followed this with a weekend at The St Albans Folk Festival in April 2003.
In the past couple of years Phil has been playing Sydney gigs and also has started to get around The Central Coast and beyond, including The BerryBlues Festival in December 2003 and the Newcastle Blues Festival in February 2004.
Lately Phil has been playing much more around the Newcastle area performing both solo gigs and supports for the likes of Ash Grunwald on his recent tour.
Now, having just completed a successful weekend at The 2004 Berry Blues Festival, Phil is looking forward to his return to The St Albans Folk Festival and also to his first recording, which will include Tony Keep on drums and Paul Rutter on fretless electric bass.
It will be recorded at Ramrod Studios (owned by Herman Kovac ex Ted Mulray Gang) and will be engineered and produced by Glenn Skarratt, a well known and respected name on the country music scene, it will feature Phil's original songs and will endeavour to capture the feel of a live performance.
