Biography

Phil Fearon (born 30 July 1956) is a British record producer. He was the lead singer, songwriter and keyboardist for the 1980s band, Galaxy.

Career: Rather like the RAH Band, Galaxy was not a true group of musicians but a front for an individual producing all the music in a studio environment, with two female backing singers to supplement the recording sound (Julie Gore & Dorothy Galdes). Galaxy’s best known hits were “Dancing Tight”, “What Do I Do” and “Everybody’s Laughing”, which were all up-beat commercial pop songs, hitting the Top Ten of the UK Singles Chart. Before forming Galaxy, Fearon was a member of the band Kandidate. Galaxy’s records were distinctly early 1980s in style, with prominent use of keyboards and synthesizers. Galaxy’s popularity waned in the mid ’80s, with the trend moving towards acid house, though the later single, a cover version of “Ain’t Nothing but a Houseparty” was an early example of this genre. In 1987 Fearon founded and managed a record label called ‘Production House Records’ with Laurie Jago & Raj Malkani, moving away from performing to producing other acts.

    I have the great Steph from "Over The Rainbow" to thank for my rediscovering this act - I have quite a weakness for '80s soul, and this is just so infectious, it's wonderful... :) The Fearons are one talented family for sure... (I was happy to hear "Everybody's Laughing" at my workplace recently!! Yeahhh... )
