EILE is delighted to feature the latest great video and atmospheric single from Fremantle-based, pop singer-songwriter, and LGBTQ advocate, Philip La Rosa, in our music slot this morning.
“With a passionate message to stay true to yourself, PRIDE is a personal song for Philip, who has always loved music but was put off from pursuing his dream as a teenager when his journey was touched by bullying, fear and intolerance“.
It was while studying at John Curtin College of the Arts in Fremantle, that Philip felt the effect of bullying really bite, and dropped out. Later, he felt a strong desire to share his story, and at the same time use his music to shine a light on depression in the youth and LGBTI communities. STRONG was the result.
The release of the above new track, Drowning, shows more of the promise to come, and Philip has a new album coming out in early 2019, which we at EILE can’t wait to hear!
(We’ll hear a bit more of Philip’s story in our upcoming issue of EILE Magazine for September/October!).
