‘The Twang Factor’ presents: Phil Hooley

Sadly we are coming to the end of our present series of ‘The Twang Factor’. Next week we will be giving you the opportunity to vote for your favourite act from the present series. The act receiving the most votes will then be invited to record a Twang Factor winner’s slot for us. ‘The Twang Factor 2’ will be launching in February 2021 with more great new and under-recognised acts.

The first series has seen some really outstanding performances and it’s great that we can finish it on a high note. Phil Hooley is a songwriter from North Yorkshire. He works both as a solo artist and with his band The Woolgatherers. Citing songwriters such as Guy Clark, John Prine and Bob Dylan amongst his influences, Phil’s life-worn voice is the perfect instrument to enunciate his thoughtful and articulate songs. Here he is performing a solo acoustic version of ‘The Same Old Song’, a fuller version of which features on his new album ‘Songs from the Back Room’.  Find out more about Phil by visiting his Facebook page here

We are now looking for new acts to appear on ‘The Twang Factor 2’  which will begin in February 2021. Interested? – click on this link to find out how to apply.
