Phillip Fox - Ohio, no places like home!

by Gio Pilato

One of the most notorious slogan about Ohio in America is "The Heart Of It All" and the debut album of the Phillip Fox Band, Heartland, pays a wonderful tribute in many ways to this beautiful part of the world. After about one year in the making, the band releases this superb journey in music that take the listeners through an imaginary trip through Route 70, crossing Columbus until reaching Buckeye Lake in a road of the soul, made of love, loss, hope and truth.

Phillip Fox has courteously accepted today to talk to us at Bluebirdreviews.com to find out more about the band, their debut album and their phenomenal music combustion that Phillip likes to call "Country-Fried Rock'n'Roll".

 

Rival Sons' drummer, Michael Miley, took on interview questions from rock writer, Stephanie Hussey.

Robben Ford is one of those very rare people that is able to make an impact on anybody, as a musician and as a human being. When I walk in his dressing room, his charming smile and his presence makes me feel extremely comfortable and personally, I could not hope for more, given the importance of this extraordinary musician.
 
Bluebirdreviews is extremely honoured to meet Robben in London, UK, to promote his latest record, A Day In Nashville, which demonstrates once again the class and the ability as songwriter and performer of the american guitarist.

Tell us about your new project: A Bad Think: Sleep

Michael:

Sleep is my 5th album, and they just keep getting better. You would think I'd run out of things to say but apparently I have a lot to say! I'm hitting a sweet spot or something, in my writing or production, and there has been a ton of responses. It's fantastic to hear ... I do this for the art and all that. I don't do it for the fame or the glory or any of that. Of course, it's fantastic when you put all the hard work into it and someone appreciates it. I do it for the music. All of my albums, I love them all and this one I love too. They are like children, it's hard to play favorites.

WHERE I'M FROM

Love Underground: The Dave Gutter Story

My 'Music Lover' friends and I feel so good when we can introduce each other to an artist or band. Not just any band, but one that deserves to be shared. A band that blows us away. We will pass around the CD after enough listens that we can part with it. Before you know it your CD is returned. "So how'd you like it?" "I loved it. I found their webpage and ordered this one and their first album." That is about on average what happens, and we're old school, we prefer hard copies, the way we prefer our cash in our pockets. We respect each others opinions and taste in music, and it is a privilege to turn each other on to something pure and real.

This piece is about an artist that is pure and real, devoted to a life pursuing that perfect moment. This is about a big fish in a small pond. It isn't someone just breaking out, I am certainly not at the cusp of it this time. You may have heard the name. Someone could have got to you before I have, considering this artist has been playing music for thirty years and has released over a dozen albums, winning as many awards. The first EP released still sounds fresh, as does the entire discography, the way most great music does. I hope you'll enjoy this read, I enjoyed writing with anticipation of turning you on to some music by an artist 'where I'm from'. This is the story of a true luminary, and his name is Dave Gutter.
