An old folk classic, ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ has stuck around for a reason. And from the very first moments of this new version by Philip Murray Warson you know you’re in safe hands. From the subtle opening guitar, to the warm harmonies and even the beautiful horn section, this is superbly built folk from the ground up.
You can download and keep a copy by clicking above (top right), and there’s plenty more of this beautifully lilting vocal in the full debut EP – out now on Bandcamp: http://philipmurraywarson.bandcamp.com/
Sometimes getting a break in the music industry is down to being in the right place at the right time. Even for the most talented, you can send all the demo links in the world to everyone and still end up being ignored. Some people, however, do slip through the gaps and find themselves making the most of that talent.
Philip Murray Warson is a folk songwriter whose track above, ‘Following Time’, demonstrates that he is good at what he does. An actor as well as a musician, Warson is well used to being in front of an audience. However, in spite of all his experience treading the boards, it was a chance meeting in a London pub that led to him being invited to play gigs in New York.
That experience led to a new confidence in his songwriting, which has resulted in his new EP. ‘Last of the Hunted’ immediately won airplay on BBC introducing, and now it’s available through Bandcamp.
