Phrase

We talk to Mr. Harley Webster, better known to music fans as the creative font of indie rap – Phrase.

Phrase garnered much attention for his second album, 2009’s Clockwork, which married whipsmart rapping with a kaleidoscopic production bed. It also featured a roster of collaborators not usually seen with Australian hip-hoppers.

In 2011, he returns with his third album Babylon, which again features a broad production palette, plenty of live instrumentation, and his now-trademark selection of musical buddies – including Cold Chisel legend Jimmy Barnes, You Am I’s Davey Lane, Sparkadia’s Alex Burnett, Guineafowl, and his soul star wife Jade McRae.

Check out our fascinating chat with Australian hip-hop’s true musical innovator: Phrase.
