Producer / Keyboards
Phil spent 37 years in Nashville working as a keyboard session player while simultaneously evolving into a music producer. He has produced three Grammy-winning albums for Steven Curtis Chapman and played on projects by Kenny Chesney, Kenny Rogers, and Elton John.
As Sweetwater Studios’ executive producer, he acts as a quality control person and ensures that the music coming out of our facilities is top-notch. This is especially true whenever he’s playing keys for a client, but it also applies when he’s helping them craft a project, selecting or even co-writing songs so that the music communicates exactly what the artist is wanting to say.
In Phil’s estimation, the quintessential album that broke through the most barriers in quality songwriting and production could be none other than Abbey Road by the Beatles.
