New Recordings from Philip Murray Warson

Having gained considerable attention with an EP late last year, Philip Murray Warson has made two new tracks available online.
“The Trees They Grow So High” is his own, rousing arrangement of a traditional folk song. The recording features Helen O’Hara on the violin, familiar to many for her work with Dexys Midnight Runners – most famously on ‘Come on Eileen’ and the ‘Too-Rye-Aye’ album – and the current line-up of Dexys.
The track has immediately gained the attention of Mark Radcliffe of BBC RADIO 2, who featured the song on his Wednesday-night folk show.

‘The Falling of the Leaves’ is a setting of a poem by WB Yeats. While also drawing from folk-influences, it has more electric instrumentation, with leanings towards psychedelic rock, including a Hammond organ part from Sam Beer of Treetop Flyers.
Both tracks are available as free downloads, via SoundCloud and alongside his previous release on BandCamp.
Last year’s ‘Last of the Hunted’ EP featured almost instantaneously on BBC Introducing in his native Oxfordshire, as well some influential folk music blogs. It also came to the attention of legendary DJ Bob Harris, leading to an invite perform for the Under The Appletree Sessions, which have featured some of the leading emerging artists in folk, roots and country from both sides of the Atlantic.
With further material set to be made available this year, Philip Murray Warson has firmly established himself as an artist to watch for 2016.

Philip Murray Warson has made ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ available as a free download. His distinctive arrangement of the folk standard is the final track from his EP, which was received with considerable acclaim following its independent release last month.
 
The recordings were made at Soup Studio in East London earlier in 2015 and featured almost instantaneously on BBC Introducing in his native Oxfordshire. A number of live solo dates followed during the year, including as support for Treetop Flyers during their UK tour.
 
He is set to play a live session for Bob Harris’ WBBC in the New Year, with plans for a more extensive release later in 2016.
