Philip Sayce's highly anticipated new album, The Wolves Are Coming, is more powerful, unique, and brash than anything he has written or recorded to date.
From his initial grasp of a guitar neck, Philip Sayce embraced an unwavering dedication to his craft. Surpassing Malcolm Gladwell's theory of 10,000 hours of practice to achieve greatness, Sayce's breakthrough occurred when Jeff Healey discovered him in Toronto. Hired by Healey, he toured globally which included some of the most elite music festivals. Over the years, Sayce has recorded and toured extensively, collaborating with the likes of Melissa Etheridge, ZZ Top, and Deep Purple, establishing himself as a rare artist with exceptional songwriting, guitar prowess, soulful vocals, and electrifying stage presence.
His latest release, The Wolves Are Coming, was recorded in Los Angeles and showcases Sayce's multifaceted talent. Collaborating with renowned musicians, the album captures the intensity of the pandemic era through powerful tracks like "Oh! That Bitches Brew" and "Backstabber." The diversity of the album is evident in the uplifting funk groove of "Lady Love Divine" and the poignant ballads "It's Over Now" and "Intuition."
Born in Wales and raised in Toronto, Sayce's love for the guitar was nurtured by exposure to influential legends. Having contributed to various projects, including Uncle Kracker's chart-topping single "Drift Away," Sayce's journey includes major label releases like Influence and Scorched Earth, Volume 1. His seventh album, Spirit Rising, gained immense success during the pandemic, accumulating over 131 million streams on Spotify.
With The Wolves Are Coming, Sayce delivers a powerful and unique body of work. The album serves as a transformative bridge between despair and hope, offering solace and healing during challenging times.
“These songs and stories came into focus during my darkest times. The Wolves Are Coming represents a bridge — a connection between despair and hope - that invites broken spirits to be transformed and healed.“ - Philip Sayce
