"One of the greatest Blues guitarists Europe has produced, and currently one of the finest anywhere in the world. His recent involvement with Mark Knopfler (of Dire Straits) in the Notting Hillbillies, briefly turned Philips into a kind of rock star (featuring on the cover of Q magazine no less!)" Trevor Hodgett, Blueprint Magazine. When not fulfilling a busy diary of solo acoustic dates throughout the continent, he occaisionally feels the urge to assemble a collection of North Yorkshire's finest "The Rough Diamonds" and bring a little bar-room boogie and Western Swing to a wider audience.
