The male Enya has arrived! If you’ve enjoyed the ethereal dream pop of Irish singer Enya, known for her layered harmonies and Celtic melodies, I think you’re going to absolutely love Phillip Presswood.
Like Enya, Presswood is a musical master with an Irish heritage, performing all the vocals and instruments himself– he’s essentially building a musical masterpiece step-by-step, and the result is magnificent. His whole life has prepared him for making music that matters to people.
By age four, he played piano and before his teenage years, he had composed his first orchestral work.
As a classically-trained pianist, Presswood has studied music as it relates to computer technology, delving into sound synthesis methods including MIDI, sampling, and hard disk recording. He has worked on several soundtracks, and is unique because he speaks five languages.
Phillip Presswood’s new album, Love: The Fifth Season, is a three CD box set that includes 30 new tracks ranging from pop/rock and dream pop to electronica and classical Celtic music. It’s set for release on November 3, 2015, just two days before his birthday.
