Until he left New York in 2012, Gabriel Miller Phillips was a fixture in the Brooklyn music scene and an outstanding songwriter from the great American school.
For two long years when he could not leave the house for health reasons, Miller Phillips kept company with an acoustic guitar. The result was the fine folk album “One For The Crow” – a delicate album of gently picked guitars and pop songs with country notions – and, later on, several tours of the United States.
Now home is a few thousand miles away. Time and experience brought Miller Phillips to a new place: “Mirror Mirror” is that album. Written in Munich and recorded in Brooklyn, the album includes Nico Muhly, James Preston (Zachary Cale), Jared Tankel (Budos Band), Thomas Unish (Arp) and others.
“In the New Yorker’s songs there’s so much knowledge about the last years’ pop music, that he could serve as tutor in pop music” (Bayerischer Rundfunk)
“Emotional and intimate” (Süddeutsche Zeitung)
“A graceful honesty shining through the darkness, his voice [swoops] like a cross between Jeff Buckley and Elliott Smith.” (Uncut Magazine)
