Born in Charlotte NC, raised in Chapel Hill. Son of psychologists. Lifetime musician. I’m in the middle of a year off from ECU that I’m dedicating to my music career – and I couldn’t be any happier.
The band is Matt Phillips & The Philharmonic. I play guitar/keys and sing lead. Gregory Williams (bass) and Tre Harrison (drums) make a tight rhythm section, while Connor Mangold (trumpet) and Travis Huff (sax) arrange horn parts that help frame my vocal parts. We play a soulful mix of pop, jazz, folk, and funk that’s been crowd-tested and party approved. Now, we’re ready to put on our big boy britches and share some good music with you.
