About Phillip Phillips
Phillip Phillips released his debut CD "The World From The Side Of The Moon" (19 Entertainment/Interscope Records) in November. The CD debuted at #4 on Billboard's Top 200 chart and has already reached gold status. His first single "Home" topped the charts and his second single "Gone Gone Gone" is out now. Phillip first began making music when he was 14. He soon found himself mastering riffs from classic-rock tracks like Deep Purple's "Smoke on the Water" and Ozzy Osbourne's "Crazy Train." Several years later, Phillip formed an acoustic band with his Sister and brother-in-law and added singing to his repertoire. After graduating high school, he began studying industrial systems technology at Albany Technical College in Georgia and continued playing music with his brother-in-law. With encouragement from his family and friends, Phillip took a break from working in his family's pawn shop and auditioned for "American Idol" in summer 2011- and soon found himself tearing through powerful, full-throated performances of songs by artists like Creedence Clearwater Revival, Otis Redding, and Wilson Pickett on the Idol stage.
