Multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter & producer, he is best known for his 1980’s chart hits under the Galaxy moniker & has appeared @ two of our events in 2011 & 2012…

Phil joined the band Hott Wax, which also included David Joseph & who evolved into Brit Funk pioneers Hi-Tension after Phil had left.) In the late 1970’s he was a mainstay of the hit group Kandidate & set up a studio in his north London house & initially recorded with the group Proton on Champagne Records.

Fearon’s first recording as Galaxy (with assistance from singers Julie & Dorothy) was ‘Head Over Heels’ on Ensign in 1982, which became a big club hit. The first true success came with the Top 5 hit ‘Dancing Tight’ in 1983 & over the next 15 months they chalked up a further 4 UK Top 40 singles including Top 10s ‘What Do I Do’ & ‘Everybody’s Laughing’.

Galaxy

Their radio-friendly pop/soul debut album Phil Fearon & Galaxy also made the Top 10 in 1984. After a quiet period Fearon returned to the Top 10 for the last time with a revival of Tony Etoria’s ‘I Can Prove It’ in 1986 (also a small US R&B hit). He continued to run a production company (Production House) from his home making commercial dance records which included the Baby D anthem ‘Let Me Be Your Fantasy’.

Phil is currently touring the UK club circuit & working as one third of UK producers The Str8tjackets. He has made 2 incredible appearances @ Summer Soulstice in the past  & we wouldn’t put it past him to make another one sometime soon… Boom!!!
