‘The Well of the Unconscious’ – @phildel blogs about her creative process

Sometimes, by the time the pen hits the paper, it feels as if most of the hard work has already been done.

I started following Phildel because my friend Nitai mentioned her. He appreciates her art from a unique point of view: Here’s someone else who was born into a very strict religious environment and makes art about their journey of escaping from it.

Phildel is a wonderful artist even without that angle. But to me, what I get from listening to her lyrics is that there’s more to her story of having been ‘forbidden’ to enjoy things like music – it’s much more about freeing herself from the internalised values she absorbed in her extraordinary childhood.

Or maybe I’m reading something into it that isn’t there.
