The ground breaking debut CD,"The World From The Side Of The Moon" from last seasons American Idol winner Phillip Phillips is a breath of fresh air.I have to admit,I was hooked from my first listening. It is obvious that on his first outing for Interscope Records that his major musical influences include Dave Mathews and even a hint of Mumford and Sons.The first single,"Home" is already a smash hit,with over 4 million copies sold here in the U.S. "Home" is the best selling single of any American Idol contestant before Phillips,including Kelly Clarkson. The latest single,"Gone,Gone,Gone" is already lighting up the airwaves here at The Point.
Phillips,21,a native of Georgia, will kick-off a summer tour with John Mayer in July.That show will roll into Farm Bureau Live,here in Virginia Beach on August 24th.
My favorite tracks from the new CD include: "Man On The Moon","So Easy","Drive Me",and "Get Up Get Down".
And don't forget to listen to Barry Mckay in the afternoons for your chance to win a copy of "The World From The Side Of The Moon' and tickets for the John Mayer/Phillip Phillips concert at Farm Bureau Live!
And as always,Crank it up and rock the rafters!
