Musicians Call For Refugee Advocacy At Freedom Seeker Concert

On the night of Sept 14,  the Phil Monsour band joins a diverse mix of musicians who are lending their songs and voices to the call for the Australian government to abide by it obligations to refugees, the concert is raising money for refugee advocacy and assistance through the Refugee Action Collective (RAC) and Refugee And Immigration Legal Service (RAILS).

The lineup includes Big Iron, Rivermouth, Phil Monsour Band, The Molotov and Andy Dub and is said to be a mix of roots rock reggae for refugees.

Phil Monsour is set to release his new 12 song CD “100 Days” at the concert. “100 days” is an acoustic flavoured CD that features Sydney Oud player Mohamed Youssef on half of the tracks. The album is a step in the direction of one of Phil’s long term ambitions of blending some Eastern sounds from his family’s heritage with his contemporary acoustic rock style. “100 days” is the Phil Monsour bands third studio album and reflects a cohesive sound developed over time. On many songs electric guitars are swapped for acoustics, and Jon Lloyd has moves off the drum kit to play the Djembe. A number of the songs on the album were previously recorded with the full rock band, but for this project they're recorded in a stripped back acoustic mode. The songs continue to feature Phil’s unique lyrical concerns and the title track 100 days is about a boat load of Palestinian refugees lost a sea while trying to reach Australia.

Phil is currently running a crowd funding CD production appeal to complete the CD. http://www.pozible.com/project/185240
