Today, our new music spotlight is on Philip Whitehead.
Line-up: Philip Whitehead (vocals/guitar/piano/production)
About: Russian-British singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Philip Whitehead hearkens to the likes of renaissance man forbears Matt Corby, Sufjan Stevens and RY X with his introspective, self-contained working style. After a string of single releases last year, he is currently set to release his self-produced debut EP in 2019. Within songs surveying the existential vacuum of modern survival, expect hushed indie-folk distillations and soulful laments, with an abundance of layers and whisper-in-your-ear vocals.
What Hidden Herd say: Returning to music after a traumatic personal tragedy, Philip Whitehead‘s re-release of ‘Winter’ challenges the initial release with something far more intimate, haunting and resonant.
For fans of: Tom Odell
Next shows: UK tour dates to be announced in 2019.
