FEATURED ARTIST OF THE WEEK: Phil The Tremoloking

Featured Artist of the Week: Phil the Tremolo King

With a voice that is rough, yet as smooth as cigarette smoke in the moonlight, Phil The Tremolo King brings a stripped down sort folk pop that is truly hard to come by these days. His preferred genre of music is truly unknown. In fact, the only real common quality in a Tremolo recording is the stripped down and raw sound he consistently uses in contrast to the squeeky clean and polished high definition sound most artists yearn for. Whether he is pulsating his finger tips to nearly bleeding with a little surf rock dity, or he’s plucking away softly on a folk ditty about trains, he keeps it simple, strong, and utterly fascinating.

Phil has plans to tour the Southwest, from New Orleans to Los Angeles, all on a westbound train. He currently has a Kickstarter campaign running to help support this tour and would greatly appreciate your support. And for a low sum, you can actually pick up Phil’s entire recorded works, which includes 4 amazing albums, and his soon to be released, yet currently untitled, album of train songs. A truly original sound like this is rather hard to come by these days. We should cherish artists like Phil The Tremolo King, and in this case…keep him working!
