Phil Fearon is an English singer-songwriter best known for being the leader of the Galaxy group. Artist who was born in Jamaica and emigrated at the age of 5 to England with his parents.
Artist who began his artistic career at the end of the 70s with a group called Kandidate, which had its heyday with the title "I don’t wanna lose you" in 1979.
As for the Galaxy adventure, it began in 1982 with the release of the title "Head over heels", a title which brought the group its first major success.
A success that will be confirmed and especially amplified with the release of the single "Dancing tight" a year later in 1983, the band's flagship title which remains to this day its biggest record success.
New notorious success in 1984 with the title "What do I do", track taken from their first album "Phil Fearon & Galaxy" which also came out in 1984.
The group released a second album "This kind of love" the following year in 1985, unfortunately less successful and which was to be their last opus.
Fearon had a last major single success in 1986, not with his group but in solo with the title "I can prove it", title offered on a set by the hitmakers Stock Aitken & Waterman. A major success that will indeed be his last.

1982 ... a first title with a trendy style and sound which ideally positions the singer for the rest of the events. A continuation which promises to be under the best auspices as they say ...
1983 ... a grandiose sequel that vividly proves that this singer really has talent. Here he signs quite simply the biggest success of his career and makes a sensational entry into the musical legend of the 80s. HU-GE !
1983 ... a BIG year 1983 with a plethora of titles and quality on every level. A year that will undoubtedly remain as the artist's best vintage !
1983 ... a versatility of style only found in the greatest. Here it is in the Intimist area and the result is up to par, that's clear !
1984 ... 1983 will have been an exceptional year, the year 1984 will approach it more or less. The singer delivers here a new dance title of very big caliber and maintains his position within the Elite with the most obvious ease !
1984 ... each title that comes out is inspired, it is clear ! The singer is at the height of his art and it shows, especially it can be heard !
1985 ... a slight slack for the artist who gets off somewhat in Charts. Nothing to worry about but a quality level slightly a notch below. To monitor...
1985 ... the dropout accelerated with this title. After 2 euphoric years, the singer seems to be seriously running out of steam and unfortunately the level of inspiration is strongly affected ...
1986 ... luckily, the Tube Makers aka Stock Aitken & Waterman arrive to save Private Fearon. And the result is immediate : a meteoric rise in Charts !
1986 ... here he is even trying his hand at Hi-NRG. Unfortunately, even if the title is good, the public will not necessarily follow. Frankly shame ...
1987 ... a great adventure which ends with this title. A title which will not even be classified but which is far from unworthy, however. Like what, when it doesn't want anymore, it doesn't want anymore ...
