Two things I miss about Australia are beaches with waves and good pub artists. I don’t think the waves will be coming any time soon, but Led Zephyr is bringing one of Australia’s best blues musicians to Sihanoukville in October.
““Electric fingers on acoustic guitar” – Blues Deluxe
A veteran of the music industry in Australia, Phil Manning has been at the forefront of blues and roots style music for 4 decades.
During this time he has displayed great talent on both the electric and acoustic guitar while absorbing influences from folk, blues, country and world genres and crafting them into his unique style.
His high energy playing and relaxed delivery make him an engaging artist performing both original and traditional songs.
He has toured throughout Australia and New Zealand, as well as appearing at many festivals and venues in Ireland, UK, Vietnam, Cambodia and even Bali.
Over forty years he has recorded a large number of albums, both as a soloist and as a member of Chain, not to mention the countless sessions on other artist’s recordings, film music and product ads.
His latest CD ‘Checkmate Move’ features an eclectic collection of recent original songs.
A highlight of 2011 was winning two categories at the Vic-Tas Blues Awards – Solo Artist of the Year and Producer of the Year.
Phil Manning is a consummate live performer and it is here that he shines.
“…an Australian national treasure…can play the hell out of an acoustic instrument so good that it leaves you breathless…” – Folk Roots magazine, U.K.”
