2022 album from the singer, songwriter, musician and producer. This is his first 'solo' album after releases under the band name Astral Drive. A quick scan of the many records Phil Thornalley has worked on, and you'll quickly spot some of the biggest names in popular music, including Bryan Adams, Thompson Twins, The Cure, Psychedelic Furs, XTC, Duran Duran, and even Paul McCartney. A kind of rock'n'roll Zelig, his name is probably on countless records in your collection, although you probably didn't even know it was him. Now, on his latest offering, Now That I Have Your Attention, Phil Thornalley steps out of The Swamp (his North London studio) to unveil catchy and brand-new original songs that find him exploring the production stylings pioneered by the Electric Light Orchestra's Brummie boffin, Jeff Lynne. Thornalley celebrates the fine musicality and pure joy of Lynne's widescreen symphonic string sections, the bare-faced brutality of his straight-ahead rhythm bed tracks, and plenty of multi-tracked and stacked harmony vocals.
