E.G. Phillips - "CHAINED TO THE SUN (Slow and Bluesy)"

E.G. Phillips is a San Francisco based songwriter who creates lyric driven songs with his own special blend of whimsy and cinematic imagery which he uses to give a wry take on dealing with the longings of the heart and the madness of existence. In possession of a degree in Geography, he comes from a country called the Midwest and his favorites include Bob Dylan and The Kinks as well as Duke Ellington...and that crowd.

When it comes to his stage presence, there's a touch of satirist Tom Lehrer in the mix. As for the inspiration for his lyrics, he readily admits an unusually outsized influence by long running British sci-fi show "Doctor Who." ​"Ducks With Pants" is the name of his fake band.

"Chained to the Sun (Slow and Bluesy)" features a haunting organ accompaniment over a finger picked electric guitar and gospel tinged backing vocals by purveyor of Americana Ghost stories ArtemesiaBlack (who also happens to be producer Kenny Schick’s wife). She infuses her part with both gravitas and personality.

"Maybe modern audiences don’t have the patience for this sort of slow burn or the attentiveness for the sort build up this one requires, but hopefully there are some discerning folks out there that will stick around for the emotional payoff."
