The English Assassin Story

A Musical Magpie

The English Assassin is the musical alter-ego of Philip Solman, whose personal history links post-punk bands to Indie Dance, post-industrial cities to new world vistas, and English cynicism to Canadian idealism. 

Let's just say that The English Assassin is a musical magpie drawing together 80s- and 90s-inspired sounds to craft songs with something to say about life, love, politics, and death.

And all created from a quiet corner of Canada.
