Audible Review: Phil Lomac – “Northern Cities Southern Stars”

Phil Lomac has released his indie / alternative folk rock new EP “Northern Cities Southern Stars” this past March. This 7-track EP consists of rhythmic beats and soothing vocals that will definitely make listeners loving each song throughout the album.

Phil Lomac, a self-producing artist from North Carolina, has been singer/songwriter throughout his life. His musical roots trace back to the cold war era Berlin where he grew up. These experiences shaped his lifelong pursuit into music. After his career working with a variety of bands, such as The Brown Root Seed Company, Ron Neill & the Eleventh Hour, Senatobia and Bugs Multiply, he decided it was time to kickstart his solo career.  Lomac is now a one-man band and plays a variety of instruments, such as guitars, bass, keyboards, banjo guitar, and percussion (drums but via programing). According to the Asheville Citizen Times, Lomac’s writing hass taken on a different life with his solo work, “exposing a depth and maturity to his lyrics, offset by creative melody and minimalist production.”

“Northern Cities Southern Stars” is Lomac’s third official release and his most attentive in terms of production and song arrangement. It may have taken 8 years to find the direction for his next record, but Lomac definitely hit it with this EP. Lomac took the role of multi-instrumentalist, engineer, and producer through this album. He was able to bring together both initimate and intense musical components throughout the songs in order to create a multitude of different genres and sounds into this one perfect piece of an EP. The lyrics behind each song is genius, and provides so much power and personality into each word.
