Phil Madeira "MOTORCYCLE" CD


Phil Madeira "MOTORCYCLE" CD

from 12.00

The first of the two solo projects released by Phil in 2016, MOTORCYCLE presents 15 beautiful songs all written or co-written by Phil, including the stunning "Ghost Of Johnny Cash", and "Beautiful Scars".  Recorded with some of the world's finest musicians, MOTORCYCLE is full of love and loss, with a dose of Phil's trademark irony.  Cameos appearances by Emmylou Harris ("Old Pair Of Shoes"), Buddy Miller ("I Think About Her"), and Phil Keaggy ("Made Like Cars") nod gratefully to Phil's history as a sideman for some of the most beloved artists to call Nashville home.  Musicians on this project include Emmylou's Red Dirt Boys, plus Dennis Holt, Brady Blade, Al Perkins, Gordon Kennedy, Byron House, Jake Armerding, James Hollihan, and David Mansfield.
