Bruised, Never Broken

In partnership with lyricist Bill Martin, Phil Coulter has composed a number of global hits, including Puppet on a String (for Sandie Shaw), Congratulations (Cliff Richard), Shang-A-Lang (Bay City Rollers), and My Boy (Elvis Presley) earning innumerable accolades.

In Ireland he is much loved for songs like ‘The Town I Loved So Well’ with its stirring, emotional lyrics inspired by growing up in the troubled city of Derry, Northern Ireland.

In Bruised, Never Broken Coulter tracks right back to the beginning and his emergence from this war torn place which seemed to offer little opportunity for a young Catholic boy in pursuit of artistic excellence, recalling how, in the face of extraordinary personal and political upheaval, he went on to become one of the greatest musicians of his generation.
