Phil Coulter has been a towering presence on the world music stage for over 50 years and remains an iconic figure in Irish Music.
Phil Coulter, one of Ireland’s best-loved and most iconic musicians last year released his heartfelt biography ‘Bruised, Never Broken’, the story of the author’s remarkable rise from modest beginnings on the streets of post-war Derry to the summit of the global charts as a composer to a host of the era’s biggest stars such as Luke Kelly, Cliff Richard, Sandie Shaw and Elvis Presley….
His place among the great song-writers of the modern age was cemented in history the day Elvis Presley recorded “My Boy”, a top 20 hit in the US and across the world. He is the only Irish artist to have a song recorded by Elvis Presley. His song ‘Puppet On a String’ won the Eurovision and his song ‘Congratulations’ placed 2nd in the Eurovision. His song ‘The Town I loved So Well’ is one of the most played tracks on Irish radio and his ‘Ireland’s call’ our rugby anthem, is played at all our international rugby games.
Very few in the music business can boast of having chart entries in every decade since the sixties. Even fewer can match the range of Phil’s output – from Eurovision winners to folk classics, from tender ballads to sporting anthems.
He has achieved world-wide recognition as a hit songwriter, notching up chart entries with a diverse list of artists from ELVIS PRESLEY to Cliff Richard, LUKE KELLY, Cilla Black to Waylon Jennings, from Bobby Vinton to The Bay City Rollers. His production credits include Van Morrison, Sinead O’Connor, Elvis Costello, Lisa Stansfield, Marianne Faithful and Richard Harris while in Ireland his successes have ranged from the Dubliners to Planxty, from Paddy Reilly to the Furey Brothers.
