Roy Phillips in concert
Roy Phillips has sold 45 million records in his illustrious career and he hasn’t finished yet.
Phillips, who’s the voice of The Peddlers, will perform one concert only at the Globe Theatre, on August 19 at 8pm.
With such enduring
hits as Smile, Day In, Day Out, Who Can I Turn To, Closer and Girlie, Phillips has performed with such legendary artists as Frank Sinatra, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, The Everly Brothers, Lena Horne, Nina Simone, Sergio Mendes, George Benson and Rodger Fox.
The Peddlers’ On A Clear Day recently featured as a backing track on the award-winning series, Breaking Bad.
The original Peddlers last album, Suite London, composed by Roy and backed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, has recently been rereleased on CD and includes six bonus tracks added to it.
The Times gave it a five-star review saying ‘‘gliding between funk, soul and orchestral pop, it showcases a Fender Rhodes piano and Hammond organ as they were meant to be played, all iced by the simultaneously silken and gritty vocal of keyboardist, Roy Phillips.’’
An Evening With Roy Phillips combines his skills as a superb vocalist, amazing keyboard playing and a humorous raconteur in an entertaining two-hour show featuring the hits from The Peddlers and his new solo album Blue Groove.
The show is also available on DVD, filmed with a live audience at CTV Canterbury and produced by Palmy’s own Ian Cumming. For more information go to www.royphillips.org and You Tube to sample Roy’s work.
