Phil Hooley’s New Single ‘Midasville’ Is Out Now

Phil Hooley has released his latest single ‘Midasville’ featuring guest vocals from Robert Vincent. It tells the story of a forgotten town, with a population in limbo. While it is based upon a small town Phil visited a couple of years ago (somewhere in Utah, but he won’t name the town out of respect) the story is also an allegory of the strange times we currently find ourselves in.

The track is taken from his forthcoming album ‘Songs From The Back Room’ which is due out early December and most of which was recorded remotely during lockdown. The album is a collection of songs featuring some top class session players, and all expertly drawn together by former Nashville resident Justin Johnson who produced the project.



Frontman and founder member of the alt country band The Woolgatherers, Phil is also busy as a solo artist, having  appeared at several festivals, including the Yard Stage at Black Deer Festival, the Club Stage at Cambridge Folk  Festival, and also opened for Chris Difford. 

Phil Hooley writes songs which are lyrically driven and he cites John Prine, Guy  Clark, Hank Williams and Steve Earle among his many influences.
