In Nashville, St. Louis, and around the midwest, Phil has played everything from gospel, country, blues, rock, 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.
Canopus drums are amazing! Recently excited to discover Timothy Roberts cymbals.
