Biography

David Philips is every bit the D.I.Y. Musician. Not content writing, recording, producing and mixing his own albums he also uses his skills as a multi-instrumentalist to play all the instruments on his latest offering “December Wine (4 Track Tapes.)”
Philips hails from Nottingham, UK but moved to Barcelona, Spain when he was 24 to pursue a career as a Jazz guitar player. His guitar skills landed him work with legends on the Jazz/Blues/Soul scene including Brian Jackson, George Braith and Charlie Wood as well as fronting his own projects. But it wasn’t until 2005 that he noticed his talent for rootsy song writing and soul inflected, bluesy singing. This combined with a long and varied background of world class guitar playing has proved to be a powerful combination.
His debut album “Heal Yourself Alone” was completely self released and just 2 weeks after was chosen Album of the Week by Robert Elms on BBC Radio London. After a small self funded tour of Holland and Belgium in 2011 Philips crossed paths with Black & Tan Records and subsequently signed to release his second album with them. Dubbed “The Rooftop Recordings” the album was recorded in Philip’s attic apartment in Barcelona. The record opened more doors around Europe and he spent a good part of 2012 promoting it around Europe including an appearance at the renowned Blue Balls Festival in Switzerland.
