Biography

Phildel is an artist whose deep appreciation for sound stems from an understanding of silence. During a childhood in which music was forbidden by her religious stepfather, she came to know silence well. Despite her furious love for music, for ten years she was left to imagine the sounds she would fill the silence with if she could. Following her departure from the oppressive household, her ...

I'm no good with words and have never felt compelled to comment here before, but with the lightest, most achingly beautiful touch Phildel just blew the rest of my music collection to pieces. Five stars is nowhere near enough.

I first saw Phildel play live at Bush Hall, 2011. She was supporting Joseph Arthur. I was quite simply blown away by her music and her personality and have been following her career since. How do I describe her music? Walls of sound, anthemic drums, warm strings, haunting melodies.. it's hard to identify what is the secret recipe here, all I know is it so so works.. and I also know that this is going to be the album of the year for me.. and probably the industry..

First of all I chose this album ‘cause of her name Phidel, it was risky I know, but as it turned out to be pretty cool buy. The sound is so, so different compared to any other sounds in my collection. I especially love the eerie pumping rhythm to ‘Storm song’, ‘The wolf’ and ‘Hole’s in your coffin’. These are well performed and recorded, in my opinion they’re classic mile stones for the musical world. The catchiness of ‘Mistakes’, ‘Moonsea’, fab. My overall favourite track on the album is ‘Switchblade’, the piano work so surfistiated for such a young musician and ‘Dare’, also ‘Funeral bell. Granted the title song, ‘Beside you’ (all versions), and ‘Afraid of the dark’ are a bit ‘girlie’, but keep playing the album and they’ll grow on yer! I recommend this album to be a part of everybody’s music collection.

I bought this on the strength of some good reviews, and what I good job I did! This is an utterly mesmerising debut album. There is a mix of Kate Bush and Lana Del Rey here, and possibly better than either. I can't rate it highly enough. Every track is stunningly beautiful, with a haunting lyrical quality to her voice. The production values are just superb. Impossible to pick out any favourite tracks, the whole album is a masterpiece of song-writing, singing, musicianship and production. This is everything that the x-factor genre of music is not.

Quite daring, you may think! Only wait until you have listened to this stunning debut album of a very talented artist. Phildel's outworldish voice will captivate you, and not only her Storm Song will blow you away! By the way, I made breakthrough forecasts for these artists who were then largely unknown: Skakira, Adele, and Lana Del Rey...

I have been avidly following the rise and rise of Phildel for many years and waited for this release for what seems like forever!

This girl is not only beautiful and multi talented she transcends all genres of music appealing to all.She refuses to tick a specific box, and that is what sets her apart.She can transport us all on a magical journey without us having to leave the comfort of our own home.
I predict that Phildel will be the breakthrough artist at the Brits with her haunting melodies, magical lyrics and beautiful voice.
Definately my album of the year! Buy this album I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
