Phil has been singing locally for a number of years first in choirs and bands then later in local theatre societies and various vocal ensembles. As happy singing Rock as he is singing Opera, Phil’s versatile voice has meant that over the years he has had the opportunity to perform some of his favourite roles and songs by a variety of composers, including Gilbert & Sullivan, Puccini, Gershwin, Bon Jovi and Freddie Mercury!
Phil is also an accomplished composer and lyricist and in 1996 successfully produced his own musical “Drifting Dunes”.
In 2008, Phil founded Voce with friends Iain, Mark and Chris, as part of a concert with Barrow Amateurs where they were all members; the success of the group was unprecedented and set them off on this wonderful journey.
Phil’s first love is to perform and through Voce he has had the opportunity to do this all across the North of England and Scotland at many new venues and events and he is really excited about what the future holds for the group.
