Phil Hooley is a long time singer songwriter, having performed in many bands over the years. His best work to date is an album of his songs recorded by his band The Woolgatherers in 2008, entitled Long Way To Indigo. The album received critical acclaim in UK national press, including Sound On Sound, The Link, and Talk. Visit the website or just Google the name Phil Hooley to sample some of the songs. The material does not fall into a particular category as it blends Country, Blues, Folk, with a hint of Irish influence and even a bit of Swing. However lyrically the songs are all equally poignant and heartfelt and the performances have been described as "excellent".
The long awaited second CD, as yet untitled is in progress. Phil has recorded 13 songs acoustically and is currently involved in the arrangements.

After a busy year doing some solo performances, songwriting and arranging the next album, I'm performing again with The Woolgatherers. I'm delighted to say that we are getting some airplay on the BBC (BBC Introducing have featured "One More" to close the show and are planning to use some other songs soon). So Happy New Year to all you listeners, readers and players out there!

We appreciate your spot on review of "YOU CALL EVERYBODY BABY" I felt the lyrics were too simple in the verses myself. Written at Dunkin Donuts at 6AM on a Sunday morning after a late late night. I will have a listen to your work.

Thank you for your review of "It Matters"...sincerely appreciated! We are enjoying your songs and love these arrangements. If you own the Track Masters, pls think about putting them up on Songsinc - they will inspire others and could earn you some decent royalties!

Thanks again and Happy Writing!
