Phil Ireland, the dynamic singer-songwriter, has released his latest single Coming Alive, introducing a vibrant blend of pop, rock, and soul. This release serves as the ideal follow-up to his debut album Ruling Days.

Ireland, known for his previous work with rock groups Exit State and Breaking Waves, has transitioned into a solo artist whose work vibrantly combines energetic performances with sophisticated lyrical insights. Coming Alive reflects this synthesis, inspired by Ireland’s desire to connect with his audience on a personal level. He invites listeners to engage with the song uniquely, stating, “I know what it means to me, but I want the listener to interpret it in their own way.”

Creating a rich electric soundscape, Ireland’s latest work features textured guitar lines and powerful synthesizers, supported by his contemplative vocals. As a skilled vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter, Ireland incorporates a mix of influences from iconic 2000s bands like Muse, The Killers, and Paramore, infusing familiar tones with a fresh twist.

Ireland describes the creative burst behind Coming Alive, sharing, “Some songs fall out of the sky, and this one did. I wrote the lyrics, bass, and guitar in about 10 minutes in my studio.” This spontaneity resonated with his bandmates, quickly turning the song into a group favorite.

With over fifteen years in the music industry and having supported notable acts such as Tony Hadley, Go West, and T’Pau, Ireland’s rich career background informs his continuous musical evolution. ‘Coming Alive’ is poised to be a significant addition to his distinguished discography, promising to introduce new dimensions to his music and further connect with fans old and new.
