band reviews

I’m Phil Brookes and music is my life…

I have been listening to music since the mid 1970′s and performing and writing since the 1980′s.

Being an independent musician myself I know how hard it is sometimes to get your material reviewed without having to pay for the privilege.

I will be drawing on my vast knowledge of music to provide impartial reviews for independent musicians and songwriters .

Until recently I was guitarist with internationally renowned UK funk act Funkshone with whom I released 2 critically acclaimed albums and numerous singles. I have had the honour of playing at some of the best venues in the UK such as the 100 Club and Camden Town’s Jazz Cafe on several occasions, live sessions for BBC radio 2 at the world famous Maida Vale Studios and for 6 Music in the Hub. As well as festivals across Europe including headlining EkstremSportVeko.

I have my own production company, Big Chair Productions and my own independent label Sleepy McGee Recordings. I have no axe to grind nothing to sell and no preference stylewise. If I like it I will review it. I will not give a negative review, it achieves nothing. I am not a critic!
