Recently signed to Authentic Media and fresh from touring with pop legend Lionel Richie, Philippa has never been more popular and with this, her fourth full length album, she has surely delivered her best yet. Bringing in Grammy Award-winning producer Eliot Kennedy, Philippa has clearly upped her game with an eclectic mix of uptempo pop, country and also slower, mellow ballads all presented with contemporary production sparkle. Tracks such as pre-released single "Lighthouse", the country-tinged "Stars Will Fall" and the pop-driven "Fire" all show the sheer versatility of the Sheffield-based songstress while the underlying gospel message in her lyrics doesn't stop this reviewer from feeling that she is a pop talent with the ability to break into the mainstream anytime soon. Philippa has worked hard to become the UK's leading female CCM singer/songwriter and this deftly executed set can only further enhance her reputation.
