Philip John

Guitarist, Singer-Songwriter, Producer

Philip John first began performing jazz guitar around Brisbane at the age of 16; since then has continued to develop his sound and style through extensive live performance experience and guidance from local and international musicians and educators such as Trudy Kerr (Mulgrew Miller), Sean Mullen and Geoff Gascoyne (Jamie Cullem, Georgie Fame, Van Morrison). Philip now performs an original fusion of jazz, electronic and groove music. His songs are performed live on guitar and vocals while he loops bass lines, drums and synths with digital live looping software. By doing this he creates the effect of a full band while retaining the intimacy of a solo performer.
