Biography

Phillip Goodhand-Tait (born 3 January 1945, Hull, Yorkshire) is an English singer-songwriter, record producer and keyboard player. In the early 1960s he began singing in groups under names such as Phill Tone and the Vibrants, then Phill and the Stormsville Shakers (with Paul Demers on drums, Ivor Shackleton playing guitar, and Kirk Riddle on bass). In 1964 the Shakers played the Ricky-Tick club circuit, (famous for engaging Cyril Davies, Alexis Korner, The Yardbirds and The Rolling Stones) and backed U.S. blues pianist, Memphis Slim. Later in the 60s they toured as Phillip Goodhand-Tait and the Stormsville Shakers and supporting the likes of Larry Williams.

Goodhand-Tait wrote songs for Larry Williams, Roger Daltrey (“Oceans Away” - on the LP, Ride a Rock Horse - and “Parade” and “Leon” - both on the One of the Boys album), Gene Pitney (“You Are” and “Oceans Away”), Zoot Money (“No One But You”) and Love Affair (“Bringing on Back the Good Times”, “A Day Without Love” and “Baby I Know”).

By 1971, Goodhand-Tait branched out and wrote the soundtrack for the film, Universal Soldier. In 1976 he played the harmonium on Chris De Burgh’s album, Spanish Train and Other Stories.

Goodhand-Tait has produced live albums by Magnum, Venom, Climax Blues Band, Kid Creole and the Coconuts and The Lords of the New Church.
