Plan9 Music

2015 two CD release from the veteran singer/songwriter. Perspective was recorded in January and April of this year at his home of Port Elizabeth in South Africa and features 17 brand new songs. Working with exceptionally talent South African musicians this double CD is sure to be a blessing for all fans around the world. Shawn Phillips is one of most fascinating and enigmatic musicians to come out of the early '70s singer-songwriter boom. The mere fact that he was a musician as much as a singer and songwriter made him stand out, and helped him attract a dedicated following. His refusal to shape his music - which crosses between folk-rock, jazz, progressive, pop, and classical - to anyone else's expectations has allowed him to hold onto a large and dedicated cult following, without ever achieving the stardom that his talent seems to merit. With 15 albums behind him since the mid-1960s, Phillips has a following, in America, Europe, and Japan, and he has performed at different world music festivals.
