Phil Matthews a.k.a. The Village
The spirit of Syd Barrett, Robyn Hitchcock and Andy Partridge permeate the music of pink sock wearing trilby hatted troubadour Phil Matthews a.k.a. the Village. The Village is a magical place for outsiders and oddballs. Phil has built up a following around the Midlands live circuit winning hearts and minds with his performances. Phil has written and performed with many bands over the years and the Village is his latest alter ego, with his music played on over 200 radio stations worldwide and his album tracks streamed and downloaded over 1,000 times. On record Phil performs entirely on his own, but live is a different story where alongside his solo shows he is more likely than not to share the stage with Mr Hugh a multi-instrumentalist whose kazoo playing has been known to reduce grown men (and especially women) to tears. To book Phil for live performances or purchase his album contact him through his website.
