Philos: Greek term referring to a friend with an emphasis on deep rooted ties and obligations.

As the definition suggests, Philos is a brotherhood. It’s a group of guys that through, good times and bad, continue to be around for each other. It just so happens that what they all love doing is playing music. And they’re pretty freaking good at it. In a popular culture overrun with celebrity and an intense focus on privilege and the unnecessary, it’s nice to know that there are regular guys you grocery shop next to that want to make extraordinary music.

Whether playing music or playing Halo, the bond is what makes Philos electric; contagious even. It’s what people want to come back to see, and it’s what people outside of it want to be a part of. Using universal truths and positive meanings backed by epic melodies, they craft songs with sincerity. Their hooks are infectious but their thoughtful lyrics demand and deserve multiple listens to appreciate their depth. It is inevitable that your mind wander to thoughts of your own past when their music hits you. Seeing them live takes you back to childhood basement sessions, only these guys can really play.

Something never overheard at a Philos show: “it was good, but they didn’t really seem like they wanted to be here.”

In Philos’ minds, connectivity is at the heart of everything they do. Not marketing, not opportunity. Connection, love, and acceptance; empowerment, sharing. Consider it an intimate relationship with a band that enjoys the ability to do what they do. Moving people… They thrive on the fact that you know what they’re thinking, and want you to feel along with them.
