About Phillip Hartley
Sheffield, United Kingdom
I am a Singer/Songwriter from Sheffield, England. Instrumentally I mainly play acoustic (6 & 12 String) guitar, although I also play Mandola, Mandolin, Keyboards (a bit) and percussion. I have been around the Folk Scene in Sheffield since the early 1990's having been the Lead Vocalist/Guitarist/Mandola/Mandolin player in the trio "Hair Of The Dog" for about 12 years. I left the band in 2006, wishing to change direction musically having grown tired of playing the same, mainly Irish songs.
I am now a solo performer singing mostly self-penned songs and am available for bookings in around the area. I now write most of my own material and will be changing and adding songs on this page as and when I have something new for you to listen to, so keep coming back to check. If you like what you hear tell all your friends. If you don't, then, for heaven's sake, keep you gobs shut! (ha ha) I recently completed my first album of original songs; "Words And Music" you can order or download it from this link: http://cdbaby.com/cd/philliphartley
or it is also available via i-tunes and Amazon MP3
