Thanks for your review of Wise Old Owl. That's the first time anybody's told me "not to change a thing"! I'm often sceptical of that kind of feedback, but I see we have similar influences, genres and you obviously know how to make good music! Only a pity that we're not closer geographically. Expect a friend request!

Hi Michael,
Thanks for your review of Sorry that I Made You Cry. I'm encouraged you like the melody. My vocals were not great when I recorded this due to health problems, but I hope to re-record it later. I note your point about reverb. I'm still a bit green when it comes to recording! Best wishes Phil.

Hi Jess,
Thanks for your encouraging review of A Lifetime Ago. I found it difficult to know what category to put it in, so I understand you questioning its listing in soundtracks. Yes, the vocals are not adequate - I've been ill for some time and it was the best I could achieve. But I hope to rerecord the song soon, once my vocals are back up to scratch. Considering your own background I'm honoured to receive such a good review! Cheers, Phil.

Thanks for your encouraging feedback on Fiction Girl. I'm glad you think it's original in style, that you like the vocals and would like to hear more from me. Yes - the vocals are not as good as they should be. It was recorded a couple of years ago for a cometition, and I was ill at the time. Hopefully vocal issues should be resolved in the re-record. Every success!

Thanks for your review of GIVE ME THAT BLING. I agree with you, but I can't afford to add more instruments, etc. I'm the lyricist. Thanks again.

Hi Kathy, thanks for your review of Empty Echoing Man (which you entitled Lonely Island). Glad you liked the harmonica! To me that's an important hook in the piece. The song was recorded 18 months ago for a competition whilst I was still ill - which explains the variations in pitch. But thanks for your comments about the timbre. I double-tracked the whole song and added reverb to disguise how poor my voice was at that time! That's probably why you can't make out all the words. As soon as my voice is back on top, I'll rerecord and hopefully people should see a difference. Thanks again and warmest wishes. Phil

Hi, Phil - I am always cautious when I talk about the vocals. Recently I got a very high score on one of my songs and the one critique was the range of the song did not seem to be a good range for the vocalist. I am the vocalist and I pick the range. I listened to your song "Sorry that I made you Cry". You're right - vocals there are good. By the way, that song is a song every female can appreciate and you do it well. You might check out my song "Who Knows You". I wrote it with the thought it was a song I would like my husband to sing to me - he is not a singer so he never will - but you might appreciate it. Have a great day and I do like your work. Kathy

Hi Matthew, thanks for your encouraging comments about my song New Creation in your recent review. Your suggestion about adding some harmonies seems a very good idea. Phil.

Congratulations on your chart success Phil!

Phil Oakwood posted over 30 days ago

Thanks for your congratulations! I'm really quite overcome by what's happened with the charts - particularly the 37-50 chart. I've now had five songs in that chart, the highest being Sun Boy Blues (currently at No 4) and at one point I had four songs placed at numbers 7, 8, 9 and 10! If only I could do the same in the national charts, then I'd be happy! Sorry for the delay, I've had all sorts of hospital appointments over the past two weeks.
