Philip Bosley, a member of Deathpod, does Americana music outside of Deathpod.
“‘Philip Bosley is a sarcastically witty, skillful Canadian musician who brings honest grunge country to a hardworking, urban audience so that everyone has the opportunity to benefit from Philip’s cheap therapy through musical storytelling, humor and a unique perspective that reminds us all that it’s okay to laugh at yourself.’ I’d like to think my music fills a need: Americana needs louder guitars and Grunge needs better lyrics, so this is where I step in. Back in the 80’s, they would’ve called it Heartland Rock. Now it’s Roots Rock, Alt-Country, Americana, or Canadiana. It’s a harmonious meeting place between blue collar city workers, bored suburban kids, and farmer country sensibility. Buck Owens heartache with Big Sugar guitars, Merle Haggard and Nirvana, Jason Isbell and the Melvins. James McMurtry singing for Mudhoney? Seattle Grunge meets up with Austin Roots-Country in Southern Ontario for beer and whiskey. (This bio was written before I got sober.)”
