For well over a decade I was the lead vocalist/guitarist/mandola player in a folk trio named "Hair Of The Dog". I left the band in late 2006, having grown tired of playing and singing the same (mainly Irish and Scottish) songs over and over. I took a break from music for a while and have recently begun write and perform my own songs, a selection of which you will find here on my page. I hope you like them. For more tracks giving a better idea of the range of styles I like to cover, I recommend that you visit my page on MySpace. at www.myspace.com/phillipwrhartley. You can also find me on Reverbnation, Our Stage, Last.FM, AFCOllective.ning
