Powerfully moving instrumentals Holland Phillips – Eleven After Midnight

Powerfully moving instrumentals Holland Phillips – ELEVEN AFTER MIDNIGHT:  Most artists have a “time” when their muse speaks best to them… for Holland, that’s between midnight and dawn (thus, the title for the album)… as you listen, you will realize that the powerfully moving instrumentals he has created are among the very best you’ll hear in 2021… I recommend that you watch the trailer Holland created for the new album first…

You’ll definitely want to SUBSCRIBE to his YouTube channel, where you’ll find several other enchanting performances from his albums.

The September 3rd, 2021 release date means that samples aren’t up yet, but when they are, I believe you’ll find “That Distant Horizon” most enjoyable… the piano and strings create an almost orchestral feel for you; I predict that DJ’s (of all stripes) will be selecting this grand song for their playlists frequently!

I’ve reviewed Holland’s work many times, most recently his “A Momentary Pause” release from last year, and have given him high marks ever since I first started reviewing his music… one of the most enjoyable tunes (for me) on this new album is the opener, “Lights Off“… you’ll be able to feel the comfort of the wee hours as you listen to this magnificent song.

The penetrating sounds on the introduction for “Landing On Mars” will give you wonderful visuals, especially when you use your headphones to listen… celestial movements will be in your dreams, to be sure!

What always impresses me most about Holland’s sonic magic is the variety of instruments he uses to paint images for your ears… that was definitely true on “Stranger Dreams“… the vocal weave in, ’round and through the song will keep your thoughts and emotions moving most pleasantly on this great performance.

I had no difficulty in making my choice for personal favorite of the eleven exciting songs offered up, either… the title track, “Eleven After Midnight“, weaves strings, gentle flute and many other instruments into a tune that will simply hold you spellbound!

Holland gets a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 for this engaging musical journey.  Get more information on Holland’s website as it becomes available.                                              Rotcod Zzaj
