Phillip Bracken Live @a.c.aipreti - Verona - 18 settembre

Venerdì 18 settembre 2015 (ore 22:00)

(VR), Veneto, Italia

"If you need comparisons, the likes of Ben Harper, Nick Drake, Doug Burr or Josh Garrels for both evocative guitars and warm voice could be cited. But be sure, you will find none of those afore mentioned listening to Phillip Bracken; none of those, but a high dose of unique emotions.

A meandering spirit, Phillip Bracken's music embraces alternative soul, indie roots/blues, and folk. Qualities guided by his rhythmic and hypnotic style of guitar playing. All of this complemented by that evocative voice floating you up into the ether one moment before hurtling you back to the dirt below in the very same line.

It was 2008 in Sydney, under the guidance of local guitarist/producer Peter Northcote, that Bracken recorded his debut EP. Independently released Everything Looks Better in Candlelight quickly garnered attention in Europe with radio play and comparisons to renowned artists from Roy Harper to Ben Harper, Neil Young to Jeff Buckley, and Nick Drake to David Gray. Interest enough to lure Bracken to Europe in 2012 where he was introduced to Polish ethno jazz icon Jacek Mielcarek.

Unbeknownst to the Australian, a demo of his latest offering, The Opole Session, was passed onto the multi - instrumentalist. Enthusiastic about this new sound Mielcarek gathered three of Poland's rising musical sons and Bracken found himself in Radio Opole, Poland, recording a live album. "It was a humbling experience", recalls the Australian floored by the intuition and passion the musicians had. "We had a day to rehearse and a day to record and I was left buzzing for a week. "
The recording, a string of shows and festivals led to Bracken and his family relocating to Poland 10 months later. "I'm the son of migrants. I moved around from a young age and where I belong I cannot say. " A statement echoed in his diversity of sounds.

With countless gigs in Sydney and Poland, his new home has enabled him to gain a following in Europe with solo shows in Germany, and Portugal, and festivals and tours in the Czech Republic and Poland. Enlisting the help of a new manager 2015 looms large with plans for touring, a DVD release, and more recording.
