Sam Phillips – Reflecting Light

(click song title above to listen)

In April 2004, Sam Phillips released the second of what would become a trio of excellent albums for Nonesuch Records, A Boot And A Shoe. It’s an album that was aptly described by the Los Angeles Times as delivering “deft, powerful strokes” and Billboard proclaimed it: “A disc of graceful beauty”.

You may recognize its’ sixth track, the stunning “Reflecting Light” from a now iconic scene in Netflix’s 2016 relaunch of Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life just released on DVD and Blu-ray this week! This gem was also featured in the 2009 film and soundtrack to, Crazy Heart. The film earned Jeff Bridges an Academy Award for Best Actor and is one of our all-time faves. Sam sings and plays guitar, T Bone Burnett plays bass, it’s Patrick Warren on piano and pump organ and the great Section Quartet (Eric Gorfain/violin, Daphne Chen/violin, Richard Dodd/cello, Leah Katz/viola) on strings.

Not that I’ve worn out, I’ve worn out the world
I’m on my knees in fascination
Looking through the night
And the moon’s never seen me before
But I’m reflecting light

Sam Phillips – Troubles Won’t Stay

(click song title above to listen)

New music from Sam Phillips is 100% just-what-the-doctor ordered about now! We’re so excited to bring you “Troubles Won’t Stay” as this week’s top tune from Sam’s new eight song mini-album Human Contact Is Never Easy.

With Phillips stalwarts Jay Bellerose on drums, Jennifer Condos on bass, Eric Gorfain on guitar, keys, string arrangements, violin, and Richard Dodd on cello, Sam tackles themes of hope, love, and faith in a way that leaves us with a healthy dose of all three. The collection comprises four brand new songs produced by Sam, two never-before-released live versions of “Reflecting Light” and “If I Could Write” from the upcoming concert film, Live at Largo at the Coronet and two favorites from Push Any Button.

Sam sat down with Vox recently to discuss her busy year composing the score for the massive upcoming Gilmore Girls revival, A Year In the Life. Four new 90 minute episodes of the iconic show will premiere on Netflix just after Midnight this Friday November 25th!

Phillips maintains that “putting music to picture, when done right, is one of the more powerful mediums. Because you have writing, acting, visuals, and music all supporting each other. And the role of art” she says, “is to move us, to inspire us, and to mean something”. Legions of “La-La’s” fans all over the world tuning in to Netflix at 12:01AM on Friday will be attesting to that!
