About Phillip Phillips
Since releasing his five-times-platinum debut single “Home” in spring 2012, Phillip Phillips has released two chart-topping albums and has taken his expansive brand of earthy guitar-fueled rock to stages across the globe. With his soulful vocals and ruggedly warm sensibilities, the Georgia-bred 26-year-old saw his first full-length effort The World from the Side of the Moon go platinum after debuting at #4 on the Billboard Top 200. In 2014 his sophomore album Behind the Light offered up the lead anthemic folk-rock radio hit “Raging Fire”. Phillips’ success at radio was accompanied by a nationwide summer tour with OAR in 2014 and a summer amphitheater run with Matt Nathanson in 2016. Phillips is currently working on his third full length album. For more information visit
