"Local London Musician Philip Da Silva nominated for the International Portuguese Music Awards"

Local London musician Philip Da Silva has been nominated under the category of New Talent for the 2016 International Portuguese Music Awards. He is up against Cee Jay Sena (USA). The 2016 winners will be announced on April 23 at the Zeiterion Performing Arts Center in New Bedford, CT and Philip will be there. I think this story of a local home grown talent is worthy of a Free Press article. Please feel to contact me for further information if you wish. - The London Free Press

"Da Silva's Big City"

London-based indie, pop rock/folk artist Philip
Da Silva, wsg Chad Price, will celebrate the release
of his latest 5-track EP, Big City, at the London Music
Club (470 Colborne St.) on Saturday, January 9, 7:00
p.m. “I recorded Bib City at a close friend’s studio in
Toronto one month ago. I produced everything
then later had it mastered in Waterloo with another
mutual friend. The album refers to my time spent in
Toronto performing with a revolving cast of musi-
cians and working any job just to fund my band and
music projects. Inevitably, I always knew I was go-
ing to move back to my hometown of London with
the love of my life who some of the other tracks on
the CD are about. The song ‘London’ deals with how
I felt in the fi rst three months moving back here
and adjusting to a diff erent lifestyle than I was used
to, mixed with some optimistic feelings in the end,”
said Da Silva. With a new recording to his credit, Da
Silva hopes to introduce more people to his music
in 2016. “My future plans are to tour with this EP in
the new year and get some grant proposals writ-
ten up to help fund a tour and future recordings. I
work full-time as a carpenter and often long days
but if anybody out there is wondering if it’s possible
to juggle work with a music career, you can always
make time for the things you love.” Please call (519)
