About Phil Gammage
"...underwrought darkside Americana echoing Nick Cave's fascinations minus the melodrama. Which might well make Gammage this generation's Hank Williams."
Trouser Press (USA)
“…one of the best singing voices you’ll hear and a mean harp, Gammage’s album stands as an organic response to synthetic emotions.”
NYC Rock Live and Recorded (USA)

Adventures in Bluesland CD
Phil's album "Adventures in Bluesland" (World Wide Vibe Records) made numerous international 'Best of 2014' lists!
Gammage draws his musical inspiration from many sources of “roots” music, but in particular it is the most American musical form of all — the blues (which is the true essence of man and womankind) that defines this new collection of songs. Phil deconstructs blues music and then reassembles it with a unique sensibility toward the human condition. The result is a music that is sometimes raucous, sometimes creepy/moody, and always grooving.
The American Dream CD
“…for people who’ve spent some time with the blues (hell, that’s pretty much everybody, right?), it’s a reminder why we like the music.“
New York Music Daily
…this is pure artistry and alive pop art: it covers the bases. And it is New York, watching the traffic flow in a true blues greatness. “It’s gonna be alright”, Phil claims in the midst of the concrete jungle that is Blueslands. I believe him.”
