From his hard-rock roots in the early 80’s (TNT) to his latest productions, Phil has always combined his talent as a guitarist and a song-writer.
While he has collaborated with many bands such as Sortilège (French metal band), Barbara Schenker, singer Renaud Hantson (Starmania/Tycoon), ERA's first album (6 million copies sold) and several film soundtracks ; he wrote and produced the rock-opera "Ypse" and the musical "Jack et le haricot magique" a successful rock musical for children inspired by the story of Jack and the beanstalk.
Today he's back to his musical roots, the music for what the electric guitar was created. Back to the blues!
