HowTheLightGetsIn 2013

Escaping her Dickensian upbringing in a household where music was banned, Phildel found solace in the piano at school. She ran away at 17, put together a demo on a second-hand computer, and soon got signed to Warner Chappell. Her compositions are classically-infused and epic, her soaring vocals compared to KT Tunstall and Duffy.

"Incredible piano-playing and beats worthy of Portishead's comeback" Planet Sound Review


Phildel appearing at this event

You've already heard Phildel's music, though you may not know it. Her music is a journey into the landscape of her imagination, at times beautifully enchanting, at others, raw and horrific. Her songs have been used on a wealth of TV adverts, from Marks & Spencers to Expedia, including a (particularly poignant) award-winning Persil ad and most recently Apple iPad. They have sound-tracked movies and are cited as an inspiration by Mariah Huehner, author of the True Blood and Angel comic books. They have been used in theatre productions and by celebrity fashion designer Henrietta Ludgate's live shows.
