"Tears For Joy" HITS THE INDIEWORLD COUNTRY CHARTS !
Raised amidst the musical melting pot that was 1970's Philadelphia (with an AM-tuned transistor radio beneath his pillow every night!), fans agree that Charlie Phillips’ songs cannot be categorized into genre. His musical influences – rooted primarily in rock, soul, folk, and blues – have been blended and distilled to create his eclectic style and fresh sound. From the blues-rock and reggae flavored “Preacherman” and "Give It Up", to the Asbury Park blare of “Natural”, to the campfire folksiness of “Donny T” and “Wealth of Friends”, his heartfelt and melody-driven songs leave the listener singing after the song is over. His charisma and spontaneity are evident in his live shows, alluring audiences by dipping deep into his reservoir of original music and cover tunes. Also a yoga teacher at his yoga studio in suburban-Philadelphia, Charlie adds the compelling ingredient of his positive and hopeful "spiritual realism" into his recordings (evident in songs such as "Little Things" and "What It Is") as well as his live performances.
Songs from Charlie’s CDs “All Roads Lead To Home” and “JustLove!” have received airplay on WXPN 88.5 in Philadelphia and other stations across the country and internationally.
Charlie's 3rd CD, “What It Is.” was released in January 2012 and is receiving critical acclaim - listen for yourself! Buy or download it here:
Charlie’s love of performing is evident from his engaging stage show. He performs regularly at festivals, coffee houses, listening rooms, and house concerts in Philadelphia and other venues across the country.
