MOONALIZER RECORDS PRESENT:
PHILIP MORGAN LEWIS - GRIEF HARBOUR (DELUXE EDITION)


GRIEF HARBOUR (DELUXE EDITION) is the new album from Philip Morgan Lewis and shows the extensive palate of the artist’s creative drive and vision. A collection of self-penned deeply rooted yet modern songs, sees Lewis mix alternative, rock ’n’ roll, gospel blues, soul, country & folk into a unique 21st century musical blend, featuring raw and urgent vocals. Written and conceived in the wake of his mother’s passing the album explores and draws from the many facets of grief, as well as individual freedom and political consciousness in the troubled times in which we live. With the creation of this fictional town with its one haunted inhabitant, Lewis crafts, with Grief Harbour, a compelling and starkly beautiful picture book where all the songs intertwine. The album is accompanied by eight music videos directed by the artist himself.
Grief Harbour (Deluxe) is released on CD, stream & digital via Moonalizer Records.

GRIEF HARBOUR (DELUXE EDITION) was produced by Philip Morgan Lewis and recorded at Hackney Road Studios (London) by Shuta Shinoda (Daughter, Yak, Ghost Poet), Fort Studios (London) by Neek Miles (Telegram, Neek), One Louder Studios (London) by Alan Emptage (Skunk Anansie. Arcade fire). The album was mixed by Lewis and Shuta Shinoda and mastered by Pete Maher (Jack White, U2, The Rolling Stones). The album features Lewis on vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitars, piano, bass, organ, banjo & backing vocals. He’s backed by a talented posse of musicians that includes drummer Jon Harris (Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Roachford), Slide guitar players Steve Honest (Uriah Heep, Bobby Womack) & Clive Smart, electric guitarists Rob Updegraff (Jamie Cullum, Jeb Loy Nichols), Gavin Bowers (Elephant) & Charles Slevin, bassist Ben Jones ( J.J.

Single Release Foxes on Red Leaves - Philip Morgan Lewis

NewsPosted by Moonalizer Records Mon, June 05, 2017 15:14:52

“Foxes on red leaves”, is the third single by Philip Morgan Lewis from his upcoming album “Grief Harbour”, the track is released via Moonalizer Records (24/05/17).

This song is an emotive slice of gritty, broken-down, piano-led alternative rock, neck deep in self-doubt and everyday agony. In the same breath it holds a euphoric sense of self-discovery, which lays dormant in us all. “Foxes on red leaves” shows us Philip’s darker side, and a sound and soul immersed in a blues’ bloodline.

The overall soundscape is cinematic, with an off-kilter theatrical and almost doomsday feel, it builds and falls as Philip’s powerful vocals ride shotgun. (Karl Johnson – Hard of Hearing music)

Jon Harris steps in on drums (Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Roachford, Ebony Bones) as Shuta Shinoda takes the reigns as piano session engineer (Daughter, Yak, Ghost Poet, Anna Meredith).

The track was recorded in east London between Fort Studios and Hackney Road Studios and mastered by Pete Maher (Jack White, The Killers, U2, The Rolling stones).

"Consisting of just vocals and drums (with the odd squeal of dirty guitar here and there), this bluesy anthem feels mighty in spite of its minimalism. The way it’s chanted has an almost gospel feel to it. But whilst its sonic roots may be from a century ago, the production is ultra-modern allowing every sound perfect space to breathe.

Philip has so much talent playing all these instruments himself and just so hauntingly satisfying to listen, it must hit somewhere inside that no other song has ever done! (WA12 radio - Mary & Mikki)
