Discovery: Bradley Phillips

Bradley Phillips is a San Antonio, USA-based Americana singer songwriter who has just released his first ever single. Taking on the topic of humanity’s difficulty with the adage “love thy neighbour”, it’s called The Fence.

By Graeme Smith

The track opens with a gentle acoustic guitar melody, light and lilting. Bradley’s vocals come in, smooth and expressive, delivering lyrics that are rich with imagery and storytelling. There’s an arresting simplicity to his lyrics that masks the depth they are going into, exploring how barriers grow over generations.

The Fence is a beautiful debut from an artist I’ll certainly be keeping an eye on. You can give the track a listen below.
