Simon Phillips

Sweet Smooth One Man Band

Simon Phillips has been described by Tommy Emmanuel as “a serious talent”. Simon is far from your typical guitarist, with a vast range of vocal melodies and using every limb in his body - his foot percussion that brings the beat, a tambourine and the sweet sounds from his Cole Clark. This virtuoso blends a distinctive and skilful sound that’s heavily steeped in soul, gospel, finger style and blues & roots. Did we mention the harmonica and mouth trumpet? Simon redefines the meaning of a oneman- band with the artistry that The Fremantle Herald called “Quite literally amazing…he should be listened to obsessively”.
