Philip Hendrickson

In Nashville, St. Louis, and around the midwest, Phil has played everything from gospel, country, blues, rock, polkas, Irish trad, surf instrumental, and orchestral, to (of course) jazz. It all has to swing. "If it doesn't swing, I'm not in it." Phil alternates between drumset and percussion as the gig demands.

Phil's playing is frequently described as tasty and musical. "My goal is to prove that a drummer is a musician — not just someone who hangs around behind musicians."

These days Phil most often plays around the region of Lincoln and Omaha, Nebraska.


Drum Phil is a Canopus Drums artist. He loves to explore and support independent cymbalsmiths such as Nicky Moon, Mike Mongiello, Royal Cymbals, and Timothy Roberts.
