krismarais Two collaborators and I are performing poetry and found poetry on militarization and conscription of the apartheid era white cohort and James' "Where will you be"? is very motivating as we approach the possibility of the opening of conversations about complicity and ownership Favorite track: Where Will You Be.

about

James Phillips “Soul Ou”

Originally recorded as a demo, this session turned out to be the definitive example of the essential James Phillips: a single instrument and voice, intimate and emotional. Recorded in a two-hour session in 1991, it was only released soon after his death some five years later. The songs span a large chunk of his writing career, from his time as a student in Grahamstown in 1983 to new compositions that would end up on “Sunny Skies”, released in 1994.
