Phil’s love of vintage blues, hokum, old-time, and jug band music shines through as he blows the dust off obscure old songs with his intricate picking and driving rhythms on both resonator ukulele and 5-string banjo. His original songs blend perfectly with the vintage, with most listeners believing them to be old songs that passed them by.

“If you don’t know him already, you should! Playing, singing and stage presence are all top shelf.”
Matthew Fox, American roots musician and songwriter
“some of the best music I’ve heard in a long time”Dan Phelps, Delta blues artist
“his devilishly catchy vintage style is terrifically entertaining”
