- You Are The Sun Phil Ireland 3:44
Phil Ireland rebooted his music career as a solo artist after 7 successful years in the rock world with Exit State & Breaking Waves. With those bands he gigged all over Europe & supported artists such as Michael Schenker, Black Stone Cherry, Andy Cairns (Therapy), Black Spiders, Reckless Love & Gun, playing renowned venues such as Shepherd’s Bush Empire, O2 Glasgow & Manchester Ritz along the way.
In the 4 years of going solo Phil has supported Tony Hadley, Go West, T’Pau, Heaven 17, Doctor & The Medics, John Power (Cast), Paul Young & S Club 7. He has also played big events all over the North West from ‘Music In The Park’ and ‘Darwen Live’ to the world famous Colne ‘Rhythm & Blues’ festival.
‘You Are The Sun’ was written by Phil during the 2020 lockdown to help with his grief of losing three of his grandparents. In his words about releasing this new version of the track, he shared: “I feel this fully acoustic version has grown past its original intention of being about coping with grief, it’s ultimately about love.”
