A country, blues and roots singer/songwriter, Thor is a talented multi-instrumentalist who delivers a
dynamic, energetic performance and he is coming to Macksville Ex-Services Club to play a special free show…
Sitting somewhere in that sweet spot between blues, bluegrass, country, folk, and rock, Australian singer/songwriter and guitarist Thor Phillips bends lyrics and guitars to his will.
Thor’s world-class guitar skills and passionate, powerful performances are stirring up storms across the nation.
A professional musician for over 12 years, playing guitar and supporting artists in the blues, rock, country and folk scenes, Thor has recently been stepping into his own force.
His original music draws inspiration from Blues greats like Robert Johnson and Stevie Ray Vaughn, and from more contemporary roots artists like John Butler, Jeff Lang and many more. Because of his unique sound, Thor’s music refuses to be pigeon holed; most call him ‘Blues and Roots’… but with a nod to folk, a touch of bluegrass and a dusting of country.
What sets Thor apart is his dynamic energy, his confidence with the guitar, his rich voice, and his willingness to be both powerful and vulnerable within the same song. Thor’s audiences, from the small halls on dirt country roads, to the mains stages of city music festivals, connect with his integrity and depth. He makes music which gets straight to the heart, and stays with you long after the guitar strings have stopped humming.
