Phil came first in the 'Songwriter' category at the recent 2014 South Australian (SA) Country Music Awards.
BDT’s Andrew Robertson reported, on the front page of the 25 July 2014 edition -
“He’s known locally (in Broken Hill) for his blues music but songwriter Phil LeMay is proving he can also cut it on the country stage.
The local musician has picked up a gong at the SA Country Music Festival and Awards and now has set his sights on more success.
A long-time blues player, LeMay said he only decided to enter the annual event held at Barmera each year at the last minute.”

I met Phil 18 months ago approximately, when I was visiting Broken Hill on the Australia Day weekend.
He was participating at a poet’s weekend, and many of the participants were staying at the same place I was.
As I was visiting Broken Hill by myself this trip, the group invited me to join them for dinner which was great.
I also caught up with some of them the next day for a chat.
Phil recited one of his Broken Hill inspired poems and I thought, now that would make a great story for the blog.
I’ve since chatted to Phil a few times, and hopefully he will allow me to publish one of his poems.
Back to music, I’ve also heard Phil on the guitar as he’s known for his blues music, and I know he can sing and play.
In the meantime, congratulations on your award Phil.
Well done, cheers, Jane Deany
