Bradley Rust Get your blues on. This is a fun and varied collection of tracks where no two are the same ensuring your attention is held throughout wondering what's coming next.
Love the frenetic pace of the instrumental 'All Or Nothing' while the more stripped back tracks work well too. The occasional female vocal chiming in works great, as do the range of instruments used (The sax is on point!) The lyrics are honest and direct giving a real genuine vibe overall which is needed for this intimate sound. Favorite track: All Or Nothing! (Instrumental).

about

An eclectic collection of my original blistering blues rock guitar and soft acoustic and piano tracks written over the years. Every track means so much and every note is from my very soul.

This album is like my musical life story. It’s also a ‘big’ album in that there are over twenty tracks on it already and, because I don’t intend to release any more albums, I just keep adding tracks to it. The earlier tracks have a poorer production which I kept in as a mark of the childlike mistakes I made whilst learning the recording process. I realised quite early on that studio recording requires such great technical ability and talent that I simply don’t possess, so I now have the greatest respect for all the unsung sound Engineers and Producers out there.

So, anyone buying the album will receive a special code on request to download the latest version for free.

Thank you.

Phillip Foxley

“If you’ve never heard of Phillip Foxley then you should seek out his music, turn up the volume and zone out. It reflects the maturity so loved and appreciated in the great blues rock players. His song collection has all the right stuff; edgy blues to classically styled rock to soft acoustic and piano tunes. It’s like listening to three generations of blues-rock on one album”.

Track Name: The Place!
The Place:

There's a place
I Didn't know existed
In my mind
Where so many battles rage

I fought so long
The demons I created
Now it's hard to tell the right from the wrong

There's a time
I can barely remember
In my mind
There were so many happy days

All hope is lost
For those days to Recapture
Now I live my life at such great cost

I feel so bad for the friends I've tormented
Through the anger and the rage inside
I have to change before I go demented

Or before my life comes to an end

This is the place
This is the place where I am

This is the place
This is the place where I am right now
Track Name: I Don't Fit In! (Rock Version)
I Don't Fit In: ©2011

I don't wanna be out
I don't wanna be in
I'm really not quite sure
Because I don't quite fit in.

I don't know what to do
I don't know what to say
But I'll tell you a tale or two
if you pass my way

I don't wanna be around
I don't want any part of this
You won't understand but
I'm gonna give this a miss
As the world flies by
I don't fit in

I don't wanna be here
I don't wanna be there
I'd rather be free
and I don't really care

I just don't fit in
and that's a fact of life
In this dangerous world
the paranoid always survive

I don't know what to do
I don't know what to say
But I'll tell you a tale or two
if you pass my way

I don't wanna be around
I don't want any part of this
You won't understand but
I'm gonna give this a miss
As the world flies by
I don't fit in!

I just don't fit in ... not in any way!
Track Name: I Don't Want To Go!
I Don't Want To Go:

The wind is blowing strongly and it's pulling at my hair
A 'thing' has appeared in front of me and I can only stare
"What manner of beast is this"? I ask my self aloud
"To be able to materialize in a swirling brimstone cloud"?

The wind is blowing stronger and the 'thing' is coming near
As I gaze upon it's face, I realise my worst fear
The 'thing' has come to collect a debt that I owed it years ago
A promise is a promise - but I really don't want to go!

The 'thing' is now upon me and holding out it's hand.
For many years I prospered in this mortal land.
But now the time has come around and I've always understood.
There's no escaping mortality and hiding will do no good!

I don't want to go!
Track Name: I'll Be Right There!
I'll Be Right There!

"There you go" I said.
"Don't you know why I'm
always standing in your shadow"?
Then I find that we're going nowhere
but I don't mind as long as I'm here with you.

Say you love me
Tell me that you really care
and I'll be right there.

Say you want me
Tell me that I'm the only one
and I will understand
Then I'll know.

Don't you tell me that you
never say the truth
I don't know where I'm going
Then I try to find
just some piece of mind
I don't know what you're saying
Track Name: Promises (acoustic version)
Promises: ©2010

I'm so tired of all your promises
and all the lies I've heard for so long

Now it's time to change this situation
and live my life for me and me alone

Promises, your Promises, where do you get them from
Promises, your Promises, mean nothing to me

Promises, your Promises, I don't believe a word you say
Promises, your Promises.

I seem to spend all my days
waiting around for you

You never call or turn up on time
You always let me down, I make excuses for you
I have to say you're no longer on my mind.

Promises, your Promises, where do you get them from
Promises, your Promises, mean nothing to me

Promises, your Promises, I don't believe a word you say
Promises, your Promises.

You can keep your promises.

Demon Lover:

Demon lover you're everywhere
I can't get you off my mind
I'm thinking about you all the time
and I think I'm going blind

What're you (are you) doing to me?
I can hardly see
but I've made up my mind
that I want you
and need you for all time

I've gotta get a message to you
wherever you are

gotta get a message to you
no matter how far

gotta get a message to you
'cause you're so far away

Demon lover ...
I just wanted to say

that I love you
and I want you ...

Track Name: Seize The Day!
Seize The Day:

Seize the day, it won't last forever
Find the key that makes you feel strong
Light a lamp, play the cards, you see,
Whatever works for you is ok with me.

Chorus:

Seize the day when you can have it all
Find the time to reach that goal
Don't fall down along the way
Because I'm always telling you to ...

... Seize the day.

Chorus 2:

I've heard them all
and I've seen them all
A promise is made every day

My advice to you
if you want the truth
is to get out there and chase your dream

... Seize the day.

Seize the day, we're all getting older
Day by day the chance slips away
Don't despair, just keep on going
Opportunity is in the air

... Seize the day.

Track Name: Falling For You!
Falling for You!:

I work all day
I smoke all night
I like a drink
and I sometimes fight

I'm just a guy with a dead-end job
making ends meet
but I ain't no slob

And I'm falling for ya baby
I'm falling for you

I'm calling for ya baby
I'm calling for you

You're in my mind every night and day
I'm hoping you'll get
what I have to say

I really want ya baby
I really want you

And I'm falling for ya baby
I'm falling for you

You look so fine
and move so well
Your smile is bright
And your mind a bell

There's no way I can let you go
so I'm gonna step up
and let you know

That I'm falling for ya baby
I'm falling for you

I'm calling for ya baby
I'm calling for you

Now it's time to get out there
and really chase that dream

We're gonna make it
we're gonna go far
I know it's not how it seems

We're gonna get there just you and me
I hope you feel the same

I want ya baby
I really want you

I'm falling for ya honey
and you know it too

Track Name: I Don't Mind!
I Don't Mind:

I don't mind if you ignore me
I don't mind if you're way too cool
All I ask is that you'll take care of me
and stay with me when things go wrong.

The smallest things can mean so much to me
Like how I yearn for your touch
So many things that you bring to me
I just love you so much.

Hold me, move me, kiss me like you'll lose control
Squeeze me, tease me, promise that you'll never leave me

I don't mind when you say you love me
I don't mind when you say nice things
All I ask is that you stay kind to me
and give me space to be myself

The smallest things can mean so much to me
Like how I yearn for your touch
So many things that you bring to me
I just love you so much.
Track Name: Promises (piano version)

waiting around for you

You never call or turn up on time
You always let me down, I make excuses for you
I have to say you're no longer on my mind.

I really trusted you
I know you want me to.
But I know just what went wrong
So wrong ....

... I don't need your ...
You can keep your promises
Promises ....

I don't need your promises
I'm better left alone

Promises
Promises

I don't need your promises
I'm better on my own.

You can keep your promises.
Track Name: Racing Thru Time!
Racing Thru Time:

When I walk out the door
Just like many times before
When the thoughts in my head
Seem too much to bear

Though I'm not far away
It could take up to a day
I can't help myself
It's just one of those things

When I go out to find
some kind of peace of mind
and let my mind play the games
it knows so well

Travelling through time and space
way beyond the human race
To a world of my own
Where there's just you and me

Spending my time with you
Is all I want to do
You're a part of my life
That nothing can change

You are the one for me
As it will always be
You are the one for me

Oooh! Racing through time
Oooh! Time after time
Oooh!
