With a piano style somewhere between David Lanz and Jim Brickman, Philip Wesley brings solace and a spiritual depth to the music world with his tender romantic playing. Perhaps Solo Piano Publications and Wind and Wire Publications said it best when they described his music as “pure solace”, “reflective and optimistic.”

Interestingly enough, if you ask Philip about his musical background he might surprise you. He comes not from a background of relaxing piano music, but grew up a typical 1980’s teenager, playing guitar and strongly under the influences of virtuoso rock artists Eric Johnson, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and Stevie Ray Vaughn.

Up until college, Philip only played the guitar and had no experience with the piano. Once in college though he heard the piano music of artists like David Lanz and Yanni and was instantly hooked. From that point on he immersed himself in this style of music and never looked back. In college, Philip’s studies included music theory, composition, and piano. Eventually he went on to obtain a Bachelors of Science in Music Therapy.

In 1997, during his music therapy internship, Philip composed and co-produced a relaxation stress management CD. During a performance and lecture on music and healing, he was featured in a St. Louis Post Dispatch article called “Relaxation Rhythms” and received hundreds of letters in response to his music.
