Phoenix Road is a mythical road. It flows like a dream from California, through the Northern climbs of the Soul and then tunnels deep beneath the Atlantic to the Old World. Here it passes through Brighton, Bath, Woking and through 1960's London Town, then up to Muswell Hill, before it continues through the East End. Rolling on beneath the wide open skies of the East, where it reaches its end and rises up from our yesterdays to become a Sound for today and all our tomorrows... This is the Sound of Phoenix Road!

BEAUTIFULLY CRAFTED SONGS

CD ALBUM NOW AVAILABLE FROM ALLEY CLUB RECORDS
It all began with a fun recording project, when Tom Hinton contacted his long lost buddy Jason Baldock to record ‘a song or two’ at The Crunch - Jason’s amazing recording studio near Norwich. One song became two and two became ten - and grand plans for a proper studio album called THE MOUNTAINEER were laid. Jason introduced Andy Fairclough and he was soon involved recording the Hammond Organ, Piano & Mellotron parts. Paul 'Sawty' Sawtell, heard some of the tracks over the summer, while they were in progress and loved the 60’s vibe. He quickly signed PHOENIX ROAD up to his new Cambridge based label; Alley Club Records label, where the CD album can now be ordered.
That might have been the end of it, but Jason and Andy were up for playing live... Tom didn’t need too much persuading and set off to find a more musicians for the live shows. He was lucky enough to find the wonderful Ivan - a musical wizard recently moved from Croatia to North London. Ivan loved the songs and the sound and a match was made. Simon Brice, one Tom's oldest buddies and former band mate, was up for playing lead guitar and so the line up was complete.
On 1.12.19, PHOENIX ROAD played their debut gig and album launch party at The Portland, Cambridge. The entire album was performed live, in track order to a good sized audience - and what a fun night that was!
++NEWS++ Recording is underway for a new album called THE WESTERN SKY. If it all goes to plan... it will be launched at the next gig which is currently pencilled in for 6th Feb 2021 at The Portland, Cambridge - covid permitting of course!
