SongVault Artist Profile
The Phil Brookes Reputation
northants, United Kingdom
Blues / Rock
"My earliest memory is hearing Space Oddity by David Bowie when I was about 3 or 4 years old. Bowie remains one of my biggest influences as a songwriter."
"All I ever wanted to do was make records. Long before I ever picked up an instrument I knew music was in my blood. I picked up my first guitar at the age of 11 and since then I've never looked back."
" I'm totally self - taught aside from the music theory I took in school and over the course of the last 25 years I've carved out my own style"
"I pretty much play it as I feel it, what happens at the time, that's how it is. I don't really let myself get tied down with technicalities. I just like to let it flow."
"I suppose deep down I'm just blues to the bone."
