Digital distribution of music has disrupted the music industry, putting financial strain on many professional musicians. Simon Phillips’ response to these new challenges is delightfully low-tech.
With a background steeped in soul, roots, folk, gospel and blues, Simon pushes the limits of what a one-man band can do. He is described by Tommy Emmanuel as “a serious talent”.
Originally from a small coastal town in Western Australia, Simon began playing the guitar at age 12. He is also a kiteboarder and now calls Melbourne home.
