Phil Davidson, Manly Fig, Seaforth Bowling Club, Nov 2021
ABC 702 Drive Show host, Richard Glover, discovered singer/songwriter Phil Davidson. It was his subsequent rendition of his song ‘Belfast Boy’ on the show that proved a massive hit amongst 702 listeners resulting in his signing to ABC/Universal Music and the launch of his full time music career. Prior to that Phil had been a high school music teacher.
He is a songwriter and performer of the highest calibre. His songs are known for their wonderful turn of phrase, their self-effacing humour and their strong Celtic melodies. No surprise due to Phil being originally from Ireland.
Phil is a regular on Richard Glover’s Drive show and TGIF along side some of the countries finest comedians. He has toured internationally, released numerous albums and writes regularly for film, theatre and charity.
His song “Love That Matters”, written to raise money for the Blue Mountains Fire Appeal, was number 1 on the Australian Country charts in 2013.
