Reliably informed

Northumberland-based folk singer-songwriter Philip Jonathan reveals his latest single, In The Garden.

It’s a track infused with the artist’s trademark soothing blend of folk, peacefulness and passion, which immediately instils a sense of calm within the listener, wrapping a warm, homely blanket around even the coldest heart.

When interviewed, Jonathan has been quick to cite the likes of Icelandic folk rock band Sigur Rós among his inspirations. However, while the Icelanders’ impact is clear, Jonathan’s own timbre shines through superbly as he effortlessly combines balletic, soft violin with a bedrock of warm acoustic guitar and harmonic vocals.

If In The Garden is a love letter written to Jonathan’s rugged homeland, upon its release it’s certain to gain many more signatories.
